Webster defines fear as unpleasant emotions cause by expectation or awareness of danger. However, if we are honest with ourselves many times the expectation of danger is only an illusion produced by the emotion of fear itself.

What are Emotions?

Emotions are produced by chemicals mixed in the hypothalamus gland in the brain. Emotions have been defined as holographic imprinted chemicals that reinforce long-term memories.

God has not given us the spirit of fear.

The reason it says that God has not given us the spirit of fear is because fear is not a spirit, but a production of your natural mind and emotions. The Contemporary English version truly give us more understand of what God was saying through the writer.

2Ti 1:7 CEV God's Spirit doesn't make cowards out of us. The Spirit gives us power, love, and self-control.

I truly believe that fear is not a spirit in and of itself as we have viewed in the past, but can be a door for demonic influence. When you submit your mind to God; no fearful thoughts no fearful motions.

The first step to releasing fear is to acknowledge it. Write your deepest fear on a piece of notebook paper in large bold letters. Some times these negative affirmation of fear dissolve simple by seeing how foolish they are and how they are not really you.

Affirmation to refute fear

(Memorize and say this affirmations aloud or in your mind when faced with fear)

"God has not given me the spirit of fear, therefore it is only an illusion produce by my mind to keep me from experiencing the life God has promised to me! I will not fear, for God's goodness and mercy follow me as God's Word goes before me to give light to my path."
