Joyce Meyer: False Evidence Appearing Real

There is debilitating fear that Satan tries to put on us everyday. I call fear False Evidence Appearing Real. It is intended to keep us from having the power, love & sound mind God wants us to have.

Sometimes we think of fear as an emotion, but it is actually a spirit. In fact, fear is one of Satan's favorite tools, & he particularly loves to harass Christians with it.

But Jesus said, "All things can be (are possible) to him who believes!" (Mark 9:23 AMP). And an on-fire, Bible-believing Christian who is fearless is the enemy's worst fear!

It has been said that fear is the opposite of faith, & that is true. We can't live in faith & fear at the same time. Fear paralyzes us & keeps us from receiving God's promises. It keeps us from stepping out & obeying what God has called us to do.

Fear must be confronted head-on with the power of faith. We must proclaim the Word of God & command fear to leave. So the next time fear knocks on your door, send faith to answer!

-Joyce Meyer
