Asinavalo is a Zulu word that means “we have no fear”!
In this season, God is looking for bold and strong people who will stand for truth, righteousness, and justice. Fear does not come from God, it comes from the enemy. We must be a generation that resists and rebukes fear. If we allow fear into our hearts and minds, it will paralyse us and hinder us in our Kingdom pursuits. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
A spirit of fear has been released over the nations
In this dispensation, we have witnessed a deliberate agenda to release fear in the nations. It is easy to control and manipulate a generation that is fearful. When people are fearful, they become paralysed and helpless. Fearful people submit and acquiesce to whatever you tell them. The spirit of fear has been released through viral diseases, some of which are real and others not. Fear has also been released with regards to wars, food security, and many other issues. We must be purposeful and intentional in standing against fear – we must categorically refuse to embrace it.
When you have no fear, you stand
We are in the days of evil, and Ephesians 6:13 encourages us to put on the “full armour of God”. After putting on the armour, we are expected to stand. We cannot capitulate and align with the enemy’s agenda. We must stand our ground against every wile and plan of the enemy. Embracing fear will negate our ability to stand. May we stand out as believers in this dispensation!
We must categorically reject fear and embrace the spirit of power, love, and soundness of mind.
When you have no fear, you speak out!
Mordecai warned Esther about remaining silent in a time when the enemy planned a massive genocide against God’s people. Esther had chosen the safe and comfortable option of remaining quiet and going with the flow. Mordecai had to remind her that God would raise another in her place and substitute her if she remained silent (Esther 4:14). The consequences for remaining silent when God expects us to stand and speak are serious. Let all believers in the Body of Yeshua be reminded that this is not a time to remain silent, it is a time to speak truth, righteousness, and justice!
There’s a popular saying, ‘All it takes for evil to prevail is for good people to remain silent’. Be encouraged to come out of your complacent and silent zone in this season. Resisting fear means that you must be willing to lose your reputation if necessary. Yeshua made Himself of no reputation so He could appropriate the victory for us.
Be a part of Gideon’s army
In Judges 7:3 we read of 22,000 soldiers who turned back from war because of fear. “Now therefore, proclaim in the hearing of the people, saying, ‘Whoever is fearful and afraid, let him turn and depart at once from Mount Gilead.’ And twenty two thousand of the people returned, and ten thousand remained.”
You cannot win a war with fearful people on board. That is why we must categorically reject fear and embrace the spirit of power, love, and soundness of mind. Rise up and be a part of Gideon’s army – say along with us ‘Asinavalo, We have no fear!’ Please join us on our Facebook group named #WeShallNotBeSilent
