“Overcoming Fear”

“And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.

And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:” Exo. 4:2,3,4

This passage has many angles to look at. It is part of three signs the LORD gave Moses at the burning bush. The sign of the serpent, the sign of leprosy,(Exo. 4:6,7), and the sign of blood. (Exo. 4:9). These signs reveal cause, condition, and cure. But in this particular passage God shows Moses the sign of the serpent. God used the rod to reveal the serpent. When God turned the rod into a serpent, Moses fled fled from before the serpent. That is invariably the natural man’s reaction in dealing with the serpent. Then God tells Moses to pick it up by the tail. God constantly causes us to face our fear. Most of our fear originates in fallen nature or or our life experience as natural men. We have literally been schooled in fear. Overcoming our fear is the beginning of walking in the supernatural realm. Satan is a reality, but you have NEVER been given permission to fear him. As a matter of fact most of our faith life is simply overcoming our fear of everything. Quit functioning like “natural men”. (1 Cor. 3:3). If you walk in fear you can never fulfill your divine purpose in life. School of faith 101, Learn to face your fears and take the serpent by the tail.

Just sayin’
