Let's Break the Spirit of Fear
I am currently writing to you from the plane of a cheap airline that, a year ago, I never thought I will be able to fly. For the last 6 years, I have lived in deep fear and anxiety of a lot of things of which flying has been at the forefront of.
Before I get on planes, before I get to the airport, my heart will be fear stricken, my legs shaking, my body trembling and mind wandering. I will cry on the flight, pray, worship, listen to sermons and EVEN hold the hand of the stranger beside me.
But I got TIRED. I got ANGRY and I said ENOUGH.
Dear Reader, are you in a place of fear, for something, of something, because of something ?
I was and I said ENOUGH, so as you read I want you to bring your fears to the forefront of your mind and say ENOUGH.
This is how it happened for me. I was smack in the middle of a faith crisis, crying every moment I had to myself and crying to my closest friend. I looked at myself and did n to recognise myself as the strong Woman of Faith that I am. My flight to Albania was fast approaching, it was 2 am in the morning as I stood at the coach stop of Lord's Cricket Ground and got angry. I got ANGRY.
I need you to picture this in your mind ;
I, with m y suitcase, at 2 am in the morning in a very quiet neighbourhood, begun to scream. I shouted at the Devil saying, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TO CRIPPLE ME, MOTUNRAYO ONAFOWOKAN - A HOLY GHOST TERRORIST, WITH FEAR ?
I begun to cast and bind this spirit that had crippled me for the last 6 years. I did not stop till I felt the Devil has heard me AND taken me seriously, because the word of the Lord says, 'whatever is bind on Earth is bound in Heaven', it says, ' the words of the tongue are powerful' and so I used the power of my mouth to cast the spirit away.
AND IT WENT.
But this was not the end.
I had to live it out during my flight.
As my flight approached, my body went back to normal mood and begun to shake but I reclaimed it and told it to obey my words because I had already broken the spirit and I was serious so, I said to my body; why are you shaking ? I have already broken the spirit of fear.
As I write now, there is a bit turbulence, much like the initial flight and as I did then, I do now; I speak to my body, "I have already conquered the spirit of fear so, RELAX".
AND MY BODY OBEYED.
But it also didn't end there. The Devil continued to try and reinstall fear into my system but this only made me more fierce and fearless.
In the last 8 days since I declared myself free from the of fear, I have, by the Grace of God, gone paragliding from the top of a VERY HIGH Mountain, I have survived a shooting and I have jumped right in the middle of the Sea ( another thing I never imagined myself doing). In the last 8 days, I have been presented with numerous situations where fear would've been my first instinct but I stand or rather, write to you today stating that I am an overcomer.
And so are you.
Dear Reader, If you have a fear or fear you are battling with today, I want you to say this prayer out loud;
I, [Insert your name], a Woman/Man of Faith, a Holy Ghost Terrorist, come against the Spirit of fear that has overcome me. I declare today [Insert date], that I am an overcomer and, today I have overcome my fear of [Insert Fear/Fears].
Today, I declare that the Lord is my light and my salvation so Whom and What shall I fear ? (Psalm 27)
Today I declare that because greater is the that is in me than he that is in the world, I am no longer a slave to fear.
Now go and live it out.
Be Strong and Courageous. Be Bold and Fearless. Be Fierce and without Shame.
You are a Precious Child of God.
