“Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe.’ – Mark 5:16

Fear is a natural mechanism which helps us to apply rational precaution in times of trouble. However, excessive fears and worries could make us act wrongly and can also impact negatively on our health. Excessive fear causes poor judgment, suspicion, lack of trust, fear of death, emotional and mental trauma arising from constant thoughts of imminent danger, loss or failure. Signs that you are suffering from excessive fears or worries are panics, inability to pray, sleeplessness, loss of appetites, spiking of blood sugar, high blood pressure, hypersensitivity to sight and sound, etc. You experience these signs because the brain at this point is attempting to do the job of the spirit – which is not possible. Relax and let the Spirit take control. Fear is a major weapon against your progress, and it derails your spiritual, mental and material growth (Proverbs 29:25).  In order to quench the flame of fears and worries, simply replace those fearful thoughts with the word of God.  When you believe in your heart, and confess the Word of God over your situation, something drastic begins to happen- your faith is raised above the problem level, and the Holy Spirit immediately takes control. Remember, God knows what concerns you; He’s got you covered already because His word is established forever. Let us pray.


Father in the name Jesus Christ, I tap into Apostolic and Prophetic veins today, and I am greatly empowered and strengthened by your word of deliverance. Lord, I declare a total separation of my spirit from the realms of worries, anxiety and fears and I nullify their negative effects on my life NOW.  Father, today, I declare I have become invisible and inaccessible to the poisonous arrows of fears and never again shall I be overwhelmed by any form of manipulation caused by the spirit of fears. Amen.
