Voice Faith Not Fear by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Voice Faith Not Fear by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Be strong and of a good courage, fear
not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD
thy God, he it is that doth go with thee;
he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee
(Deuteronomy 31:6)

Many today are in precarious situations for
yielding to, and voicing their fears.
Consider the important lesson from Job’s
experience in the Old Testament. Job was a righteous
man, a faithful servant of the Lord, but through fear, he
gave Satan the opportunity to wreak havoc in his life.

Satan had tried unsuccessfully to attack Job,
because Job was divinely protected; there was a
spiritual hedge around him (Job 1:8-10). However, the
words of Job himself in Job 3:25 reveal how Satan was
eventually able to penetrate the hedge to attack him.
Job said, “The worst of my fears has come true, what
I’ve dreaded most has happened” (MSG).

Despite God’s protection over his life, which
even Satan attested to, Job voiced his fears. In the
twenty-sixth verse, he said, “I was not in safety, neither
had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.” But
he was in safety until he broke the hedge. He spoke
contrary to the Word of God; God could not legally
protect him beyond his confessions; and that’s just like
many today, who talk fear or give voice to words
inspired by fear.

Never yield to fear because of an evil report. An
evil report is any report that’s not consistent with the provisions of the Gospel; anything that negates your
rights, privileges, ability, and heritage in Christ Jesus.
For example, it doesn’t matter what the prognosis or
diagnosis is concerning your health, refuse to fear. Keep
declaring that you’re in health.

Be like Caleb and Joshua, of the twelve leaders
Moses sent to spy out Canaan, who boldly voiced their
faith. The Bible says the others came back with an evil
report of fear concerning the giants, but Caleb and
Joshua declared, “…they are bread for us: their defence
is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear
them not” (Numbers 14:9).

That’s the voice of faith, and your faith is the
victory that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4).

PRAYER
Precious Father, your Word is my life and my rock,
the solid ground on which I stand. I’m not moved
by what I feel, see or hear; I’m only moved by your
Word. Thus, I’m like a tree by the stream, prosperous
and ever fruitful, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
