Your blood turns black to white
Your love turns wrong to right
Your peace calms storms without and within
Your joy enables the weak and worn to win
Your truth sets the captives free
Your hand makes blind eyes see
Your blood is a miracle cure
Offering healing, making men pure
I trust in You with all my heart
You turn my trouble into art
Your blood ran down the cross
Salvation’s gift can save the lost
Your blood redeemed me as a slave
I’ve now risen with you from the grave

On the cross I suffered and died. I bore your sins and the sins of all mankind. My blood purchased your salvation and your healing. I am the Lamb that was sacrificed for your wholeness. Behold I died, but I rose again. I live to bring you to Me. I offered up My life , the perfect sacrifice. You are forgiven. I offer you life, resurrection life so one day you can come and live with me. I am the Great I Am, and I love you. I laid My life down so you could know Me. I am the risen Lord who loves you. I bear on my wrists and feet the scars that brought you healing. Come to me and receive My grace,

God is love… There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:16b, 18-19 NIV
When I met the Savior, I was conditioned, through years of religion, to believe that God was a harsh Judge. Condemnation and fear were the air I breathed. I had many other fears like a fear of the future and fear of those in authority. After I accepted Christ as my Sin-Bearer, a gradual process commenced.
God began to show me His gentle love through the teaching of the Scriptures, prayer and through the body of Christ. Over time, God’s love drove every oppressing fear away from my life.
Now I know I am free, and I truly enjoy my relationship with my Father God.
This does not mean that God is not a Judge; He is, but He only disciplines us because He loves us.
He is slowly transforming us into the image of Jesus.
If you are battling fear in your life, I would encourage you to look up Scriptures on the love and grace of God. If you don’t belong to a church that preaches and teaches that God is a good God, I would encourage you to find one that does. It also helps to confide in a mature believer and to let this person know of your struggles. They can pray for you and encourage you.
Here is a prayer that will help you take a stand against your enemy, fear…
Dear Father God,
I come against the spirit of fear in my life. In the name of Jesus, I command you to leave me alone. God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). I choose not to fear since God is with me. Precious Lord, I ask you to reveal to me the love and grace You have for me. Let your love wash me of all fear. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen!
