The evil spiritual world uses fear to control people.

The evil spirits try to control people. The reasons for their control are many, for example preventing people from getting saved, or stopping them from serving God. A common way to control is through fear.

The attacks of fear are first of all against our minds. There can be a reason for our fear, but fear can also be totally unexplainable.

When the attacks of fear come against us through other people, it can be in the form of threat of violence. But far more often it’s about what people will think about us. The important thing is that we expose the enemy behind our fear, regardless of how we are attacked.

How should we deal with fear?

1. First we need to remind ourselves that the bible over and over tells us not to fear. It helps us to see that fear is not a natural condition, and that God has a way out of it for us.
2. Second we need to remind ourselves who God is. There is no reason for fear when we have the greatest power of the Universe inside us.
3. Third we need to realize our position. We have authority.

A man who used to be a pastor in a city of Belarus had big troubles with the authorities. Belarus is a dictatorship, and Christian churches there have a hard time. One day the pastor got hold of the truth that we have authority in Jesus. He didn’t behave differently and yet the authorities began to treat him in a completely new way. They almost bowed before him. The difference was that he knew his position of authority. We need to know that too. It’s time for the enemy to stop controlling our lives and others’.
