Faith and trust work interchangeably. Faith is believing in God's promises even when we cannot see them. When you trust there is no need to be anxious. Trust brings peace. Perfect love casts out fear. God cannot impart His perfect love when we don't trust. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. It is the love of God working in you, perfecting you that removes the actual fear. It is about God working in you teaching you to trust Him. It is the trust that removes the fear, which is the product of His love. Trust gives us faith, and faith is believing.
We need to believe in God's love so we can trust Him. We need to grow in our understanding of God's Love. The Gift of Faith gives us knowledge of His love, which in turn helps us to trust. It is a God-given supernatural ability to help us trust Him. Praying to God and asking for all the things that are blocking you from receiving His love is the key because it is His love that casts out fear. The peace comes when we trust, but first the love must come before you can trust!
We need to prophetically lay fear at the foot of the cross and and give God permission to stretch out the tent pegs of our boundaries. Fear dictates our boundaries which can hinder Gods plan for you. Fear can be a form of self protection that makes us feel safe when it prevents us from doing things that seem scary. I once got told by someone that each time something comes up that causes fear to immediately give that fear to God and ask Him to face it with you, and conquer it with you. Step out in faith that God is by your side and conquer that fear. His strength can work through your weakness.
An example prayer for these times is:- "Father God I give You my name the fear. I choose to release my faith and trust that You will work through me to conquer this fear". Then step out and conquer it through Gods strength. I forgive also all those who have judged us and not understood our fears. Father God I repent on behalf of myself and ancestors for worshipping Baal and bowing down to him in the false belief that he could protect us. I repent for avoidance - avoiding the things that make me afraid instead of trusting in you to protect and deliver me from them.
I repent for hanging onto control instead of handing it over to You. I relinquish all false protection I have used and hand it over to You Lord Jesus. I repent also for myself and ancestors for the times we did not trust You and allowed fear to invade us because of not trusting in you. I specifically repent for allowing fear and worry to become an idol in our lives because we bowed down to it. I repent for basing our lives on fear and worry. I ask for You to help me change my life from a fear based life to a faith based life.
I receive by faith all that God wants to give. I pray that you would open my spiritual eyes Lord and reveal all the blockages that prevent me from receiving Your perfect love". Prophetic act - "I now lay fear and false protection at the foot of the cross and repent that I have allowed fear to dictate my boundaries which has hindered the call of God on my life.
I give You permission to stretch out my tent pegs and remove these boundaries so I can go experience more of You and what You have for me. Fear, stress, worry and anxiety you have no place in me. I disconnect and no longer wish to partner with you or house you in the Temple of the Holy Spirit — my body. I command all fear, worry, stress and anxiety including Tormenting fear, fear, shock and trauma, nervousness, terror, night terrors, paralysis, panic attacks, hysteria, anguish, controlling fear, destructive fear and all other forms of fear to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. I pray for healing and the impartation of peace into the central nervous system and the digestive system in Jesus name.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken Proverbs , KJV.
The human spirit has dominance over the soul but sometimes our spirit may have areas that are inactive or dormant. These areas of dormancy mean that parts of the soul has dominance over the spirit. When there are inactive or dormant parts of the spirit these parts need to be awakened to again take dominance over the soul.
This is how you walk in the spirit and not the flesh. Sometimes the Holy Spirit has to deal with areas in our spirit before He can deal with our soul. What does the Bible say about hope? If we lose hope we are no longer believing or trusting in the Lord. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? Romans , NKJV. The word hope in Greek is elpis and means expectation of good!
Any unforgiveness towards those who caused disappointment may render the part of the spirit in which we hope dormant or inactive.

Losing hope in God and His promises when they are not fulfilled in our timing may also render the spirit inactive. This results in a feeling of hopelessness. Hopelessness is losing the belief in God that He is actually working in your life. When we fall into hopelessness we can indulge in self pity. Self pity opens the door to a spirit of heaviness. Disappointment can cause unbelief and take away our ability to hope.
Hope is the beginning of faith. The devil wants to destroy our hope. We need to repent for losing hope and forgive those who destroyed our hope. Jesus is our hope. If we lose hope we are actually entering into unbelief - unbelief of Jesus and His work on the cross. How can one's promises be fulfilled when one has lost hope?
When God gives you a promise the enemy will do all he can to destroy your hope in that promise. When the enemy steals your hope he also steals your promise. Write them down Father God I forgive name them and all others who have caused my ancestors and I disappointment and loss of hope. I repent for the times I have given up hope in You and for Your promises to come to pass.
I am sorry for all the times that I have blamed you and was disappointed in You. I forgive You my Father for the promises You have given me which I have not yet seen manifest in my life. I am sorry for all self pity I entered into when things didn't go according to my plans. I am sorry also for all the times I and my ancestors disappointed You or others. I command all spirits of unbelief, disapointment, hopelessness, despair, anguish, torment, heaviness, self pity and everything with you to leave in the name and power of Jesus Christ. I pray Father God that You would restore my hopes and dreams.
I speak life into my spirit. I speak hope into my spirit. I speak life into those areas that are spiritually dead. Instead of disappointment and foreboding I speak hope. Prophetic Act - Put on the Garment of Praise for heaviness. Foreboding of course is the opposite of hope and is the expectation of something bad.
We develop a mindset of foreboding. Foreboding - sense of impending evil or misfortune. An impending sense of doom. This is where you look negatively upon coming circumstances. Doubt, anxiety and worry can plague you. If a person has the mindset of negativity and sees everything in a negative light, he or she will reap fear, panic, misery, lack of peace, anxiety etc.
Thinking negative and confessing negative things will hinder God's blessings! The foreboding spirit can cause unbelief in the goodness of God. We may believe that God can do 'all things', and that 'all things work together for good and even have great faith at times, but if we fail to believe that God is good and cares for us all the time we can live a life of worry and doubt. This shows us that they didn't trust in the love or goodness of God. The foreboding spirit makes us not trust in the love of God or believe that He wants to give us good things. The key here to breaking the foreboding spirit is our confessions.
Positive Scriptural confession releases the power of Jesus to help us meet our need. If we refrain from confessing we can be left at the mercy of our circumstances and negative confession can expose us to demonic and evil forces!
Opening Up Our Spiritual Ears
I myself suffered greatly from fear, doubt, worry, anxiety and panic attacks. God once spoke to me and the conversation went like this:- "Do you really believe that all things work together for good for those that love God and are called according to His purpose Romans "? I replied "Yes". He then asked me"What is all things working together for good in your opinion"?
He said "You are afraid though that what is good for God and others may not be so good for you. You are afraid of what you need to face to glorify God and save souls". I told Him that I was very afraid of this. I would listen to the spirit of foreboding and would live in fear instead of believing in blessings and good things. God then said "My Word promises that I want to give you good things. Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Matthew , NKJV. He then said " If you don't believe this then how can I give you good things. This is unbelief and unbelief blocks the blessings of God. Can you let go and trust me that I want to give you good things.
All you need to do is believe so that you can receive"! He asked Me to take the word good back to the original transcripts. God sees Himself as good. He sees His justice system also as good. He sees his chastening as good. The problem is that man does not like to be disciplined. Discipline brings us back in line when we don't walk in His ways. God's ways are good.
God's ways are just. God has to judge sin because he is so moral.
God really is abundantly good all the time. When we don't believe this it becomes unbelief and can actually block us from receiving His goodness. When we truly trust this and believe in His goodness and work with Him we will live in freedom, in peace, in health and prosperity! At some point you will need to make the decision to choose to trust and believe that God is good. Once you have made that decision it is time to stand steadfast and firm.
