2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear
Crying to God to get rid of it for you doesn’t work, this is not faith, He has not given you a spirit of Fear 2 Tim 1:7. You have to face it down. As the Bible says, you have to Resist the fear that comes from the demonic spiritual realm James 4:7.
The guarantee from the Word of God, is that they will flee, and they will flee —guaranteed, by the finished work of Jesus.
You can have a person pray for you, if you have fear and the spirit of fear will go. However, when this spirit comes back to ‘check you out’, and you were never taught how to fight the fight of faith and resist the spirit of fear, oftentimes the fear will come back. This happens because you will think, “the prayer did not work, I must be doing something wrong. God did not answer my prayer, etc. etc.”
Until you deal with a spirit of fear yourself, it’s difficult to get complete freedom from fear and it will try to come back.
Fear can be real or imagined. The imagined kind of fear has spiritual roots.
Fear from PTSD or Depression, not having peace and joy, are all spiritual issues, and you bring the Scriptures (individually and as a group) to bear on these spiritual forces arrayed against you, you ARE going to have success in your pursuit of freedom.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
