2 Timothy 1:7 says, For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind..
1 John 4:18 says, There is no fear in love , but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Fear is the only power Satan has over man, it is a spirit, and it is tormenting. As long as you are afraid of the devil you cannot break his power over your life. Fear does not come from God and if God is not the source of it then the only other place it can come from is Satan. Fear is the devil's counterfeit for faith. If you are not walking in faith you are walking in fear. Fear neutralizes your effectiveness for God, and stops you from doing what God has called you to do. When you allow fear to rule you, you make fear more powerful than God. God is greater than all your fears. Fear brings unbelief which prevents the promises of God from being received in your life. Satan's objective is not merely to oppress you and keep you in bondage to fear, but to lull you into a state of unbelief through that fear which leads to rebellion against God's word so you walk in disobedience to what God has spoken to you.
Satan had instilled fear into the minds of the children of Israel after they learnt about the giants in the land but what really hindered them was their unbelief. Hebrews 3:19 says that they could not enter in because of their unbelief. Fear is based on Satan planting seeds of doubt in your minds and imaginations because the mind is the battle ground where the warring takes place, but 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 says, For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Hebrews 11:1 says that faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen, therefore faith is the manifestation of the mental pictures you build up in your mind. Your imagination is the first thing you are to bring under control if you are going to conquer fear. The reason is that fear first comes as a thought from the enemy, if you do not rebuke it you will be ruled by it. Most people who cheat on their spouses pictured it first, because it first came as a thought. You need to wake up and realize that your little fears are more dangerous than you think, because all the enemy want is a little doubt and when he gets in he begins to work on it and it will eventually lead to unbelief.
The Lord has been speaking to you about something He wants to do in your life but because of the little fears as you call it you are holding back but the truth is the devil has brought you into fear so that God cannot accomplish what He wants in your life. Your little fears are hindering you from purpose and destiny being fulfilled in your life. Do not let fear turn you back from fulfilling purpose and destiny as a believer you are to rise up and overcome your fears because all those who do not overcome will be cast in the lake of fire. Revelation 21:8 says, But the fearful, and unbelieving and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.
So bind fear and cast it out of your life today because it is a spirit. After you have done that, get your love walk in order because their is no fear in love, perfect love casteth out fear. Shut the door to fear and keep it shut.
This is a word of encouragement to help you in your daily spiritual walk.

"If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Roman 10:9
Salvation is a gift from God that is made readily available to those who repent, believe and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior and that He died on the cross and rose from the dead to save mankind (Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10). This gift cannot be earned through good deeds or by simply being a "good person" (Ephesians 2:8;1 Timothy 1:9). It is a matter of faith. The gospel also offers you a promise, to save you from the penalty of sin; we must believe it.
What must you do complete your salvation?
1. You must admit that you are a sinner.
2. You must repent of you sins.
3. You must confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
You can pray right now...
Lord, I admit that I have sinned and made myself unclean before you, the Holy Spirit. I understand that I deserve death as the penalty for my sins, and I believe that Jesus Christ paid this price for my sins, and I believe that Jesus Christ paid this price with His Blood. I want to turn away from my life -style of selfishness and sin; I repent. I confess Jesus Christ as my Savior and I put Him in control of my life as my Lord. I pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
