Fear is one of the most effectual tools that the enemy has used against God’s people. Fear feels like getting hit with a bucket of ice water; it comes in a moment but it’s effect lasts much longer. It’s lies and voices come to tell the believer that God will not keep His word or will not come through…or even questions you with words like, “Has God really said what you are standing in faith for??”
We should not be surprised by these tactics because the enemy has been using these from the beginning of mankind. The serpent asked Eve, “Did God really say not to eat from that tree?” But he continues to use fear because it has been so effectual for his demonic purposes.
We need not fear! We have a God that is seated high above all things here on Earth. He is above all, over all and everything that tries to exult itself against His truth is under His feet. Let’s look at Ephesians 1:18-23,
…I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
Just take in this truth! Let the words like, “incomparably great power” and “riches of his glorious inheritance to his holy people” sink in. The same power that raised Christ from the dead is at work on your behalf. He is the head over everything that concerns you. Let these words lift you up to where He is and to where everything is under your feet as well. Fear does not exist in Heavenly realms.
Do you know that you too are seated in Heavenly places in our precious Jesus? Let’s look further in Ephesians to show you this truth,
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
This is your position and posture as you walk this Earth. Your body may be bound to this earthly soil but your spirit doesn’t have to be! You are seated in Heavenly realms where fear does not exist. The fears of this world are under His feet and under your feet. Remember that nothing can separate us from the love of God…NOTHING!!! Therefore, if God is for us than who can stand against us? It is time to allow your heart to be encouraged by letting your spirit lead rather than your soul. Our spirits understand our heavenly position in Christ but our souls often focus on what is seen rather than hold fast to the faith in the unseen.
We believe in God through faith (unseen}, we believe that we are saved (unseen), we believe that we will go to heaven one day (unseen) and yet somehow we begin to slip in our faith when it comes to the personal details of our lives like finances, relationships and the every day sort of things.
Today let God re-position you and re-align you so that your spirit (and His Spirit) is ruling over your soul and your body. Then you can begin to view your life from the Heavenly perspective and Heavenly realms where Christ Jesus rules in authority and power.
Your personal circumstances that challenge your faith are under God’s feet…or even better let the words from Ephesians 1 come upon the circumstances that are causing you to move from faith to fear. May “…the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand…” be exerted in your life and circumstances right now!
Begin to declare this over your life! Declare it over your family and declare it over God’s people! It is time to see faith arise and fear be put under your feet. Now begin to allow the mighty strength of God to be exerted on your behalf as you align with this truth!
