Fear is one of the most potent instruments of Satan for depriving Christians of the blessing of God. One devastating form of fear is the fear of loss. Many people are unable to enjoy the blessing God has brought their way because of fear that they may lose it. And this fear torments them and makes them slaves of their possessions. But the truth is: unless we are unafraid to lose what we have we cannot enjoy what we have.
It is impossible to lose what has been given to you by God. If God has given you something, no person and no devil can steal it from you when you refuse to be tempted by fear. God may take something away from you only to replace it with something far better than what was taken away. When you trust God with your whole heart and allow fear no place in your life, you can be assured that God will preserve you and all that concerns you. It is impossible for you to lose anything in Christ.
The only way the devil can rob us of God’s blessing is cause us to doubt God’s faithfulness to His Word. We will only experience loss when we succumb to worry and speak or act in fear. God gave Abraham his long awaited son – Isaac.
However, God asked him to go up the mountain and sacrifice Isaac as a burnt offering. Instead of fearing loss, Abraham trusted God and he ended up coming down the mountain with Isaac alive and well.
God had promised Joseph greatness. However, it appeared that he was doomed to spend his life as a servant in prison. Joseph refused to doubt God’s faithfulness, held on to his dream and in due time he was brought out of the prison to be the Prime Minister of Egypt. You never need to fear losing what you have, because He who lives in you is the Lord of all things in heaven and on earth.
Prayer: Father God, I sincerely believe that You are a good God and that all Your ways are loving and faithful towards me. I decide today to refuse all thoughts of worry and fear of loss.
