Day Eight: His Fears

But I will show you whom you should fear:
Fear him who, after the killing of the body,
has power to throw you into hell.
Yes, I tell you, fear him.
- Luke 12:5
Lord, You've said in Your Word that "there is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, not because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love" (I John 4:18). I pray that You will perfect my husband in Your love so that tormenting fear finds no place in him. I know You have not given him a spirit of fear. You've given him power, love, and a sound mind (II Timothy 1:7). I pray in the name of Jesus that fear will not rule over my husband. Instead, may Your Word penetrate every fiber of his being, convincing him that Your love for him is far greater than anything he faces and nothing can separate him from it.
I pray that he will acknowledge You as a Father whose love is unfailing, whose strength is without equal, and in whose presence there is nothing to fear. Deliver him this day from fear that destroys and replace it with godly fear (Jeremiah 32:40). Teach him Your way, O Lord. Help him to walk in Your truth. Unite his heart to fear Your name (Psalm 86:11). May he have no fear of men, but rise up and boldly say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:6) "How great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You" (Psalm 31:19).
I say to you, husband, "Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you (Isaiah35:14). "You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, not of the destruction that lays waste at noonday" (Psalm 91:5-6). May the Spirit of the Lord rest upon you, "the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord" (Isaiah 11:2).* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
The angel of the Lord encamps
all around those who fear Him,
and delivers them.
- Psalm 34:7
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
- Psalm 27:1
