If your path requires you to walk through hell, walk as if you own the place.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
One of the worst things we can give power to is fear. Fear has stopped us from pursuing God’s purpose for us. We allow fear to show in ways of doubt, discomfort, and worry.
How many times did you not follow through with what God said because you were concerned about what people may think or say about you? How many times have you not gone in certain areas because you were afraid of what may happen? How often have you not shared the Gospel because you were afraid of what others may think?
These are the areas we have given way to fear, but we must be like David. We have to walk through these situations knowing that we own the situation, not giving way to fear. We must remember the destruction that has been placed in our minds is nothing but a shadow, not a reality.
God has already giving you the victory and dominion. So, hold your head up high and walk in victory.
