Scripture & Prayer: Heavenly Father, We Need A Holy Fear Of God! (Jolie)

“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe” (Proverbs 29:25). “ ‘I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass’” (Isa. 51:12). “ ‘Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell’” (Matt. 10:28).

Heavenly Father, we need a holy fear of God! And that’s the only fear we should have! If we are to carry out all the responsibilities You have for us, if we are to share Your love and truth with people, if we are to say what You say, go where You go, and do what You do – we cannot have a fear of man! God, please deliver us from all fear of man! We must stop caring what people think about us, or what they say about us, or what they may do to us! In the long run, it doesn’t matter! All Your prophets in the Bible stepped into their callings and destinies after throwing away all their cares for this world (including caring what people thought of them) and aiming only to obey YOU! Had they still had a fear of man, Your prophets would have been spiritually stunted and possibly totally unable to do all that You had for them to do. They would have missed their destinies and lost much of their inheritances in eternity! The same principle applies to each of us! Fear can cripple us! But we choose to pursue freedom from all fear of man and things of this world! Even IF we lose our lives on this earth for obeying You, Lord, this life is so very temporary. For the saint, physical death means spiritual promotion. If we are walking in repentance – then after we leave this earth, it’s Heaven forevermore! If eternity was represented by all the water in all the oceans of this world, the amount of time we spend on this earth would only be worth perhaps one drop of water. We must stop trying to be comfortable in this life. Instead, may we go ALL OUT for You! May we be radical and passionate for You with everyone we meet, everywhere we go! Lord God, instead of fearing man, and what they can do to us, may we fear You. The ultimate destiny of every single human being is a series of decisions based on Your laws. Only YOU are capable of destroying souls and bodies in Hell. Mere human beings may take our lives, but they can’t touch our spirits! We belong to You, Lord God! We declare in faith that we will live with BOLDNESS, FIRE, PASSION, COURAGE, AND A FIGHTING SPIRIT FOR ALL THAT GOD WILLS FOR OUR LIVES! Please deliver us, Lord, from all fear! In Jesus’s holy name, amen.
