FROM FEAR TO LOVE
You were born for such a time as this. For so long your confinement has been one of fear, your hidden constant companion, you have lived with it for so long, you may not be aware of its presence. The time has come for Him to reveal its effect on your life and to rid you of its power.
There are two types of confinement and He would take His time to reveal to you their affects on your life. So aware is He of your tentative steps to reach Him and many times in the darkness of fear you stumble and give up. Little do you know, no matter how you perceive your progress, He watches and guides each faltering step, even though with no sense of His presence. At times fear seems to rise up from deep with your soul as if always poised to overtake. The voices of others with their advice, opinions, experiences and life stories add to your confusion. You try to work it out, make sense of it all, seeking answers from every source, powerless and overwhelmed; all too much.
THE ROOT OF FEAR
Your original parents walked in a beautiful garden that had been solely created just for them. Everything had been provided. They wanted for nothing, having no desires, wishes or dreams of a better world, where love and peace were hoped for. They lived in an atmosphere of complete safety and protection. Fear was not a word they knew, never experienced. They were able to walk and talk freely with their Father Creator. But there was a day when a voice came to them offering things they had no need to know and they became curious. In their innocence there appeared to be no harm in what was being offered and of course having no fear they decided to take into their being a substance that poisoned their thinking and opened the door to confusion, fear and torment.
This poison would be passed down to all generations who would be born from them, causing untold misery and turmoil. They who had only known peace, joy and rest at once experienced thoughts and emotions so alien to them, they ran and secluded themselves in fear and shame. These were never meant to be part of their existence. The Light had gone out and they were forced to now live in the confining darkness, separated from their home in the garden and from the Source of their being who could not look upon their shame as they walked naked and exposed, no longer covered in the Light that emanated from their pure hearts. This confinement of fear was something all who had the breath of God in them lived in until they agreed to allow the Light of the Life of the God Man from heaven who was yet to come and enter that dark and fearful place to dispel from every dark corner all traces of this poison.
The poison of fear can colour and hide truth and love. Life can appear tainted as though looking through frosted glass and from time to time catching a glimpse of something so infinitely beautiful which quickly becomes obscured by a fleeting darkness. On seeing a glorious scene and suddenly a dark and ominous cloud changes the landscape. Many live in this half light as though walking through thick fog with outstretched hands groping for direction. The Spirit of Truth opens a small window and reveals to your spirit that lying near the borders of your mind is a covering of fear preventing you from seeing clearly.
To the soul so used to having its own way the war for its supremacy will be constant until such time it agrees to yield up the strongholds in the mind and surrender to the power of His Love.
Visions and dreams of the enemy's presence as he tries to rob you once again. It appears to be a constant assault and many would offer words of little comfort, suggesting that it is just life and has to be endured. Yes it is true you have little or no power of your own, your efforts up to date have been of no value and seem to always fail.
But the Creator of your life whispers quietly, " This is not so". There is power, strength and authority that belong to you by reason of your birthright. From the time before your spiritual birth it was bequeathed to you. An inheritance left to you by your heavenly Father, not earthly wealth and power, but riches beyond any the world could possibly offer.
