The Challenge – Week 6 Day 2

Do you think Jesus feared? Probably not. Even when He was facing the cross, knowing He would be beaten and crucified, I don’t think he feared. He was hesitant perhaps, but not fearful.

How do you think Jesus could face this world without falling prey to fear? Perhaps He knew He was a Son. Knowing your Father is Almighty God, maker of the universe, parter of the sea, healer of the wounded, provider for all, will embolden you.

Like Jesus, you have not inherited a Spirit of fear. You have inherited a Spirit of adoption so that you can cry out, Abba, Father. For you are a child of God, same as Jesus. Your Father owns everything and freely gives to his children for we are joint-heirs with Christ.

So the next time the spirit of fear tries to put you in bondage, remember you are a son, a daughter. Cry out Abba Father. Allow Papa God to comfort you, bring you peace and embolden you to face whatever trial comes your way. You are a co-heir with Jesus. What is there to fear?

“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.” (Romans 8:15 – 17 NKJV)
