Apostle Grace Lubega
Hebrews 2:14-15 (KJV); Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
The fear of death keeps men in perpetual bondage.
This bondage is evident in the lives of men who constantly expect bad news. There are people who when they receive a call from home, the first thought is that someone has passed away or some tragedy has occurred.
They live in fear of their own deaths, of their children dying, of their spouses dying and of their parents dying. The possibility of death is always looming at the forefront of their minds. That is a form of bondage. This is not how a child of God has to live. You are not supposed to be afraid of death.
It does not matter how menacingly death casts its shadow over the world, as a child of God, fear is not your portion!
God has promised to keep you. He has said that with long life He will satisfy you and show you His salvation (Psalm 91:16). He says that a thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand but it shall not come near you! (Psalm 91:7).
Refuse to fear!

GOLDEN NUGGET: God has promised to keep you. He has said that with long life He will satisfy you and show you His salvation. He says that a thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand but it shall not come near you! Refuse to fear!
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Because I am born of You, I refuse to fear. I am bold in spirit and strong in faith. Whether a plague sweeps across the world, whether wars shake nations, death is far from me because I am kept by You. I can never die before my time because I must fulfill my assignment on the earth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
