MOST FEARS ARE LIES
Guard against fear, ladies. There is a healthy fear which God gives us for our preservation and safety. However, we are often plagued with unhealthy fears which come from the enemy. One of Satan's greatest ploys is to tyrannize you with fear. Not realistic fears, but unrealistic fears.
Psalm 53:5 says: "There they were in great fear where no fear was." The literal meaning is: "They feared a fear!" This is what Satan wants you to do. Fear a fear! And he is good and getting you to do that. In Job 15:21 it says: "The sound of fears is in his ears." Not a true fear--only the SOUND of fears! Only the suggestion of what MIGHT happen! How the devil loves to deceive us!
Remember, God does not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Don't give into the phony doubts and fears the devil puts into your mind. He especially loves to put fears in your heart about having another baby. Or wondering how you could ever provide for another baby.
Fear stops you from doing the will of God. That's why the enemy uses fear against you. It immobilizes you. Debilitates you. Paralyzes you. Instead, fill your mind with God's Word. His truth LIBERATES you!
