Memory verse:
Number 13 : 33

Fear is an emotion experienced when anticipating some specific danger. It is a

F”= False
E”= Expression
A”= Appearing
R”= Real
This type of feeling will usually cause the person a desire to flee. Fear is not just dangerous, it is murderous. It kills it’s candidate before the bow and arrow arrive. It is more dangerous than danger itself. That is why it is believed that many people that die in a crash die out of fear. For fear, some will try to jump out through the window, roof or even the door before the driver stops. In fact, fear destroys.

The purpose of fear is as evil as itself. It is meant to limit the candidate by trying to stop him from seeing and knowing the possibilities of life. It makes the candidate to always see the negative side of every issue of life. Fear has stopped uncountable number of people at the edge of their breakthroughs in life, dragging them  many miles backward. It is a great barrier to life’s progress and achievements. Unlike Caleb in our key text today, the other spies saw themselves as grasshoppers and the inhabitants as Giants; the same people that had lost their minds because of them. Fear made them see the problem before them as insurmountable and concluded they were not able.

In our main text, the king of Syria had dispatched battalion soldiers to go after Elisha, the man of God, for revealing all his secret plans to the king of Israel. When the servant of the man of God saw the large army, he was fear stricken. If not for Elisha, the man of God,  he might have hidden himself, run away or even fainted. Thank God for a man like Elisha his spiritual and physical eyes were at alert and very clear. The simple way he handled the situation indicates that he had great confidence in His God, the God of Israel.

My pastor told a story that sounded like a parable. One day, many people died in a particular hospital. Somebody met death on the way and congratulated him for the killing;  but death quickly said no, he did not kill them. Rather fear killed them, that he had not even crossed the street not talk of killing anybody. They only heard that he was passing and out of fear, they died.

Do you have fears? Ask God to give you grace to overcome them. God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. Do not allow that intimidation anymore. For He that is in you is greater than he that is in them all.
Try and replace your ‘FEAR’ with ‘FAITH’ as the two words are contagious. Fear is Negative and Faith is Positive. Chose one!

Fear has stopped many at the edge of their breakthroughs.

Oh Lord, grant me the spirit of boldness. Amen

Proverbs 19-21,  Hebrew 1
