We just wrapped upa bible study on the subject of prayer at church. I have been challenged and stretched in the most beautiful way. I’ve been a Christ Followeralmost all my life. I was raised in church and I have gained knowledge throughout my years of sitting under several influential leaders and speakers and through my own studying of scripture.

My dad says all the time, “The enemy will not roll over and play dead when you are doing something for God”. He’s right. We have the authority over fear through the blood of Jesus but that doesn’t mean the devil won’t keep trying to make you stumble.

My pastor taught me that fear and faith cannot co-exist. When faith moves in, fear moves out and vice versa. Throughout my life, I have found that which ever one you feed will grow. If you constantly dwell on your circumstance, instead of what the bible says about your circumstance, you are feeding fear and faith can’t ever take root in your life. We don’t ignore our…
