I have spoken much of my despair of late and the fear I have trembling within my heart. And I realize that God did not give me a spirit of fear but a Spirit of love and of a sound mind (2 Tim 1:7). Also, I am reminded that fear is from the enemy and not of God, and all my enemy wants is to take away everything away from me. “The thief does not come except to kill, steal and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10).
Strong’s Concordance defines abundantly as this: “superabundance, excessive, overflowing, surplus, over and above, more than enough, profuse, extraordinary, above the ordinary, more than sufficient.” With that in mind, knowing that my fear of from the enemy, this is his way to destroy this abundance that I am promised by God.
I know I struggle back and forth over many areas and, while I know my bipolar is a function of a great deal of that struggle, my spiritual struggle is fueled by the enemy, and I will not let him have that control over me. I will have victory over the enemy through Jesus.©2007
