have shared this before about Fear, but it came up so strong in my
Spirit today to share it again…I had so much fear growing up, I had so
much fear in my adult life and I stayed broken for a very long time in
the “grip” of Fears Power…..I did not have this letter written by Joyce
Meyer out of her book, but after watching her and hearing her read this
letter out loud today, it hit me that there are many out there who are
still locked up in the “grip” of Fear…..so today I share this letter
with you….she suggest printing it out and signing your name or to write
out your own letter and put your specific fears in it and then sign
it…..but she emphasized beginning to do something about that fear,
because Honestly “Fear, He is a Liar”….Enjoy today’s message and Be
only refer to you as “dear” because of our long-term, intimate
relationship, and certainly not because you are dear to me in any way.
In fact, you have been a tormenting influence from start to finish. You
have told me lies and prevented me from doing the things I wanted to do
and should have done. You are indeed a miserable, wretched companion and
one that I no longer am willing to be involved with.
I am writing you this letter to let you know that from this point forward, I will not fear!
I may feel your presence, I will not bow down to your demands. I have a
friend whose name is Jesus, and He has promised to never leave me nor
forsake me, but to be with me always. He is indeed a powerful friend and
although you do have some power, His is by far much greater than yours.
You can come against me, but Jesus lives in me, and the power of the
one who is in me is greater than you are (see 1 John 4:4).
I cannot prevent you from coming to visit, I do want to give you notice
that you will be ignored. I am far too busy now fellowshipping with my
friend Jesus and developing an intimate relationship with Him to give
you any of my time. The more time I spend with Jesus the more courageous
I become. He is teaching me a new way to live, one that is exciting and
adventurous—one that is fearless.
also want to inform you that since I have so much experience with you
and know how self-defeating it is to listen to you, I now intend to tell
as many people as I can what a thief and a liar you are. The years I
have wasted with you will be redeemed and I will bear much good fruit.
Thank you for driving me to Jesus. You see, you made me so miserable
that I sought a way to be free from you, and Jesus met me where I was
and set me free.
you decide to waste your time and try to visit me even after my letter,
I am letting you know ahead of time that you will be met by faith in
God and a determination that I WILL NOT FEAR!
SINCERELY AND DETERMINED,
( YOUR NAME HERE)
