A Spirit of Fear or Natural Fear?

Updated: Apr 9, 2023

Hi all! yes its been "a minute" lol. I can only imagine what we've all been through these past years. Since COVID - our world has literally changed! Some good things and some not so good.

But enough of that, I'd like to share a short word of encouragement with you. Telling the difference between "Natural fear or A Spirit of Fear". One way that fear has power over us is by not getting an understanding. It is very difficult to conquer or dominate something that we do not understand - natural or spiritual, but ONCE you know the difference - that's half the battle.

Proverbs 4:7 " Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. That is a very familiar scripture and yet it is powerful and lifechanging!. Allow me to encourage you, whatever you are facing in your life and the enemy is trying to terrorize you with thoughts and emotions - all because you don't know the outcome of a situation OR you may not be fully educated on the subject - this allows fearful thoughts to creep in - all because we don't have any information on the matter, and to make matters worse, other people give their opinion on the matter which can lead to more anxiety.

One way to overcome fear is to get an understanding! educate yourself on the matter. Information is powerful! Understanding is lifechanging! Having an understanding can bring a level of peace that was not there before. Having an understanding can help us in spiritual warfare because some battles you will NOT HAVE TO FIGHT - why? because you have an understanding! Take a moment, is this natural fear or something else? - TEST IT!

Hosea 4:6 says My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

  • destroyed means: to cease, cause to cease, completely cut off

Because some of us lack knowledge of certain things and relay on hearsay or gossip, what God truly desires for us has been cut off - the dream or desires we have perish in our womb. Its not demonic spirits that has cut us off, but our own behavior of not getting an understanding.

We all have a tendency to fear - something that scares us momentarily, a bug, a snake, a car just missing us on the highway, things like that can bring on a natural fear which can or cannot work to our benefit. We may be a little shaken afterwards, and even laugh about it, but then its gone and forgotten.

When we encounter a supernatural fear, that's a different kind of fear: These are a few ways to TEST what you're feeling or sensing:

  1. A spirit of fear brings tormenting thoughts - I John 4:18

  2. Tormenting thoughts that won't let up, relentless and persistent

  3. It hinders your from moving forward

  4. A spirit of fear causes stagnation

It is the Lords desire to see us prosper in the our lives and in Him, but we need training, education and understanding. Beloved I pray this will help you in some way to get up & get an understanding of what's going on! When you do that, ask the Lord for His wisdom on what to do with that understanding.
