The LORD [is] on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Psalms 118:6 (NKJV)
You know those sign posts so common everywhere: No parking, No smoking, No trespassing, No posters on wall. No way through etc.
What’s implied is someone may and will try to do what’s not proper and acceptable in that place so the authorities there put up prohibition and deterrent measures.
Likewise in your life while fear is neither right nor acceptable nevertheless it will always try its best to run into you and have the run of your life. But you have the authority and power to stop and keep fear out.
You can tell fear – out of bounds, no trespass!
You can put up the sign post saying:
No fear here!
These are the places in your life that you ought to put up that signpost:
Your mind; Do not allow fear in your mind. Stay clear from fear filled thinking. Keep out fearful thoughts. Stay your mind on and fill it with thoughts of hope, possibilities, a turnaround for the better, good things happening to you any time.
Your mouth; Do not allow fear in your mouth. Never speak fear even when you feel it. Never call fear your own, like “my fear of in-laws”, “my fear of the dark”. Avoid fearful and fear filled prayers – “Oh God I’m afraid if you don’t act fast enough we are finished” Speak life, encouragement, assurance, and upliftment.
Your ears; Do not allow in fear through your ears. Do not listen to fear filled conversations, news, songs, or preaching!
Your eyes; Do not let in fear into your life through what you see. A lot of what goes for information and entertainment is actually designed to flood us with fear. Instead watch good, positive and inspiring things.
