Don’t Be Gripped With Fear- A Word by Julie Giordano


The overwhelming fear of the unknown is one of the most unsettling feelings
you can have down deep inside. The battle between faith and fear is real,
but a life of faith will teach how to see beyond your circumstance. So,
don’t be gripped with fear… hold your head up high and walk the plank of

Too many times, you can overthink your decision to believe. If you could
see it, hold it, and touch it, then you wouldn’t need faith.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not
seen (Hebrews 11:1, KJV).

When I was younger and learning how to walk by faith, I just wanted to see

  • I wanted to see it.
  • Touch it.
  • Hold it.
  • Ask one million questions.
  • Discuss it with my family and friends.
  • Then pray a little while longer.

Well, that might have been last week as well. Lol

But lately, I have been spending time reminiscing with the Lord over all
the years He has kept me. I am so thankful He kept me on every mountaintop
and valley low. And how He carried me through the good and the bad. Every
victory and defeat… He was always there.

He’s always faithful to pick you up, dust you off, and set your feet on
solid ground again and again.

  • His promises are always yes and amen.
  • He will never leave you or forsake you, because
  • He has carved you on the palm of His hand.

I have been feeling this spirit of faith rumbling inside of me. I hope you
feel the rumbling in your spirit too.

There is an expectation that has me watching the horizon for what is coming
in this New Year. It makes me feel like a horse in the gates, as the
anticipation is building and building… just waiting to burst out the gate.

I have my eyes wide open, and I am seeking His Word while expecting Him to
speak. I’m looking and listening to every word, dream, prophecy, and

God is speaking.

It feels like the wind is shifting, but just when I think I know which way
the wind is blowing, it shifts again. It is almost as if the wind is

My faith is on edge because I know the Holy Spirit is moving.

This is such an amazing time in the earth to be alive and living by faith.
We are about to see the greatest miracles and God encounters that has ever
been documented since the days of Jesus. There is a great outpouring yet to
invade our world. And I believe, we will see it with our own eyes.

May your faith be charged and ready to be tested in this new season and New

Let’s look at Matthew 8:23-27 TPT when faith was tested in the storm.

23They all got into a boat and began to cross over to the other side of
the lake. And Jesus, exhausted, fell asleep. 24 Suddenly a violent
storm developed, with waves so high the boat was about to be swamped.
Yet Jesus continued to sleep soundly. 25 The disciples woke him up,
saying, “Save us, Lord! We’re going to die!”

26But Jesus reprimanded them, “Why are you gripped with fear? Where is
your faith?” Then he stood up and rebuked the storm and said, “Be
still!” And instantly it became perfectly calm.

27The disciples were astonished by this miracle and said to one
another, “Who is this Man? Even the wind and waves obey his Word.”

  • Is your faith being challenged?
  • What are you afraid of?
  • What is happening all around you that is causing you to panic?

Don’t be gripped with fear…

This is the time to speak to your storm and declare for it to BE STILL.

The authority of God’s Word in your mouth has the power to change the
atmosphere all around you.

So use your words to shape your world.

Love and prayers,

Julie Giordano
