God: paid it all….
Psalm 27:1 (KJV) “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
The spirit of fear is a constant presence in our lives, and it is not a pleasant place to be in life. When fear is in operation it brings along some other friends to intensify the work it has set out to accomplish so that when it would have been plausible to deal with it on it’s own, it takes a lot to fight when you are ganged up against by so much unseen forces.
But as a believer we have a lively hope which is built on no-one else or nothing less than Jesus our Savior, who did such a wonderful job when He took captivity captive several hundred years ago.
You see, they thought it would be a good idea to crucify this man who was not a man, but God personified in the flesh and nail Him to the cross so that the promise He was bringing to mankind would be crushed in its infancy.
He demonstrated by His obedience to His father and the agreement of the Spirit of God that nothing can beat the power of agreement. Togetherness will get the job done anytime and this is the promise from Christ today, that although we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, know that it is only a shadow and cannot do us any harm.
The spirits of torment, fear, afflictions, depression et al, might rise against us, but it is a guarantee that Jesus has already won the battle; won’t you claim your victory today as a privileged child of God?
