Christians are protected from demonic powers, which, according to the Bible, walk about like roaring lions seeking whom they can devour (1 Peter 5:8), particularly the spirit of fear. That is why it is so very important for us to use our faith in the Word of God to maintain our freedom. This is where fighting the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12) comes in.
The devil–the enemy of all mankind–is always trying to steal the Believer’s faith, or at least render it ineffective. But Christians have a choice as to whether or not to accept his presence in their lives. That is what makes the good fight of faith good. If you are a Christian, you do not have to accept any of the things the devil and his demons may throw your way because you can defeat them with God’s Word.
We have a classic example in the Bible of how fear works against faith in Matthew 14:22-31:
22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.
23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.
