25 For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me.
Job 3:25

The story of Job is one that is greatly misunderstood by believers. Preachers preach elaborate messages on how God permitted Satan to deal Job so many terrible blows because God was confident that Job would not turn his back on Him. Let me cause some damage to your theology: what Job experienced was the outcome of his fear. The verse above makes it clear. What he feared the most came upon him.

I want to throw a question at you. Were the last major decisions you made in your life an outcome of fear or an outcome of faith? Were they made by virtue of input from the inferior realm of the senses or from the superior realm of faith? Sometimes we pray based on the input from the inferior realm of our senses, and such prayers are religious jargon. Some Christians say you have to pray in the night, when the demons are moving. Is that input from the superior realm of faith or from the inferior realm of the senses? Where did you read of that in the Bible? A demon will not always move when it’s expected to move. There are many demons that move in broad daylight and you don’t know they are demons because you are looking for them at night. Those who stay awake waiting for demons will have the demons wake up to answer their calls! Come on, that is not faith! Faith left your house long ago. It packed its belongings and left. When you started that kind of prayer, it left.

When you operate in fear, you will attract the things you fear like a magnet! That is exactly what Job did. Have you noticed that the people who are most afraid of getting witches as house helps, are the ones who get witches as house helps? It is that which they fear the most that comes upon them.

Confession: I am a believer; there is no fear in me. My life is free from the input from the inferior realm of the senses where fear thrives. I receive my input from the superior realm of faith.
