It can be scary trying to cope with the idea that the spirit realm is real and the ways it interacts with the physical realm. Fear is a problem. And having an inaccurate worldview is a problem. The solution is the same: freedom from fear.
So what is the solution? What are practical steps to change your worldview and to be set free from spirits and fear?
The Solution is Love
The solution to overcoming fear -whether the fear is spiritually-based or not – is turning to the opposite of fear: Love.
And perfect love is a person who casts out all fear: Jesus Christ.
By securing yourself in Jesus’ love, you are secure, and yet you may need to take action steps to manifest your security. If your fear is the inability to pay your bills, the action step is to make more money or reduce your bills.
If your fear is seeing demons, the solution is trusting in Jesus and focussing your mind on things of Christ, not on things of the world.
If you are a seer, and you see spirits, Jesus is the only solution to actually protect you from what you see. If you are not a seer, and you are oppressed by spirits, the solution remains the same: faith in Jesus.
Even if you don’t believe in Jesus, the demons do and they tremble at his name. If they believe, maybe it’s time you did as well.
Take Steps to Complete Freedom
In addition, it’s time to take some specific action steps and refocus your mind on something other than the dark things. It’s time to change your worldview. But how? What if your mind and flesh desires dark things?
Well, as you refocus your perspective on reality, your mind and flesh will desire the dark things less and less, until you will not desire them at all.
Thankfully, a guy named Paul of Tarsus offers step-by-step how to do this. Paul was brilliant: legit one of the top 2 smartest guys of all time (along with Plato). And his advice is very practical. He says when you come to Christ in faith, your old you dies, is buried, and a new you has resurrected, and now sits with Jesus in heaven.
So he encourages us to stop thinking the old way, and start thinking like Christ.
He likens it to taking off clothes that smell like a dead corpse to putting on fresh clothes. It involves purposely shifting your worldview, and that takes some effort.
