post it thinkRead the Bible verse aloud, and then declare.

THE BIBLE SAYS: God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

I DECLARE: “Fear has no place in me – I refuse a spirit of fear. I have the spirit of POWER from God; I have a spirit of LOVE; I have a SOUND MIND that thinks only on God’s truths and promises.”

THE BIBLE SAYS: Submit yourself to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)

I DECLARE: “I belong to God. I submit to Him and obey His ways. I RESIST the devil (and his spirit of fear) and he WILL flee from me.”

THE BIBLE SAYS: Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 18:18)

I DECLARE: “In the Name of Jesus, I bind the spread of this virus and I loose God’s healing power. I bind the spirit of fear running rampant on earth today, and I loose God’s peace.”

THE BIBLE SAYS: When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us? (Psalm 91:10 TPT)

I DECLARE: “God is my protection and my shield from any and all harm. No evil can prevail against me and my loved ones, and NO DISEASE can infect us.”

THE BIBLE SAYS: No weapon turned against you will succeed. (Isaiah 54:17 NLT)

I DECLARE: “No virus or weapon of the enemy can succeed against me and my loved ones! We are protected by the mighty hand of God.”

THE BIBLE SAYS: Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours… (Phil 4:6-7 AMP)

I DECLARE: “I refuse to be afraid to worry or fret. I refuse! I will pray, give thanks, and trust God’s peace to envelope me.”

THE BIBLE SAYS: Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go….Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. (Joshua 1:9, Ephesians 6:10)

I DECLARE: “I am not afraid, I am full of courage because God is with me and my loved ones! I am strong in His mighty power against every ploy of the enemy.”

THE BIBLE SAYS: “You are the light of the world….Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14, 16)

I DECLARE: “I will spread the word of God’s goodness and protection to those who are afraid – they will see my peace and I will show them how to be saved by God’s love and power. God is in me, so I am a light to the world around me!”


Matthew 6:25-34 NKJV - Do not worry about your life...if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?….” Don’t worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ …For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. 

Matthew 6:25-34 MSG - If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. 

NOTE: God is going to be there tomorrow. He’s not going anywhere. He said He’d never leave us or forsake us. Nothing will surprise Him. No matter what happens tomorrow, He’ll be there to meet all our needs, to protect us, to heal us, to give us answers, to fulfill His call on our life and in the earth, to use us and make us a blessing, to bring His good plan to pass! All we have to do is trust Him.

1 Peter 5:7 AMP - Cast all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. 

1 Peter 5:7 TPT - Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you. 

NOTE: Worry is exhausting. It’s using up all of today’s resources to try to fix something you don’t know about, or may not even happen! God gives grace for today (His power beyond your ability) – not for tomorrow. Tomorrow He will give you grace for tomorrow – count on it! You can’t change tomorrow by worrying about it (but you can ruin today by worrying about tomorrow! Don’t do it!) Live today as a day of victory.

Corrie Ten Boom said: “Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength. It’s moving in tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its joy and strength” (Neh. 81:10)

Philippians 4:6,7 NKJV - Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!... Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 

Philippians 4:6,7 TPT - Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ. 

NOTE: Fear is a smoke screen. The devil is trying to paint a picture of a scary future to keep our eyes off Jesus. He’s a liar! Our future is bright! He has a good plan for us! Our best days are ahead! The Church is growing more powerful every day! We are on the victory side! Focus on God’s version, not the devil’s.

Isaiah 41:10 AMP - Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

John 14:7 AMP - Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]

Jeremiah 29:11 CEV - I will bless you with a future filled with hope; a future of success, not of suffering.
