Enforcing Victory


To enforce our victory over fear, racial trauma, and anxiety, we can do the following:


Enforce Victory Over Fear by Resisting Fear and Trusting God: God has not given us the spirit of bondage to fear. On that basis, we must resist the spirit of fear. Once we give in to fear, we have given the enemy a place in our lives, and he can use fear to control the outcome of events. 


We can enforce our victory over fear and anxiety by renewing our mind with God’s Word and declaring God’s Word concerning every situation.


We Must Learn To Trust God To Take Care of Our Children: The God we serve is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. We can depend on Him. Yes, bad things happen to good people, but God has not asked us to focus on that fact. God wants us to focus on His truth. God said we should trust and put our hope in Him and we will not be ashamed (Psalm 25:3). Let us focus on that.


Teach Children About the Kingdom of God and Their Royal Identity: When we discuss racial injustice and racism with our children, it is also particularly important to let them know they belong to God’s kingdom and this makes them peculiar, royal, unique, powerful, unstoppable, and a threat to the enemy (1 Peter 2:9). Let them know that the devil is very scared of them and God lives in them, so they should not live in fear. 


Pray For Children and Families in Your Community and Leaders in Your Nation: While we as Christians can put racial fear and anxiety under our feet, we must not forget those who have difficulty doing so. Hence, we should pray for children and families in our communities. It is not enough to pray for our children. What happens in our society affects us as well. 


1 Timothy 2:1-3 (KJV) says, “First of all, I ask that you pray for all people. Ask God to bless them and give them what they need. And give thanks. You should pray for rulers and for all who have authority. Pray for these leaders so that we can live quiet and peaceful lives—lives full of devotion to God and respect for him. This is good and pleases God our Savior.


Take a moment and practice 1 Timothy 2:1-3. Pray for your community. Declare it belongs to God. Pray for the salvation of families in your community. Pray that justice will prevail in your nation.
