Transcription

Carlie Terradez:
Did you know that God created you to be bold and fearless and intrepid? That’s right. You can walk without fear in your life so stay tuned to find out how.

Speaker 2:
Why live a normal life when you could be living the Abundant Life? Welcome to the Abundant Life Program with Ashley and Carlie Terradez.

Ashley:
Hello, and welcome to Abundant Life. So glad you’ve joined us today in the land. We’ve got a great program for you today. We’re talking about being fearless. God has created us to be fearless, to be bold, and to have a fearless mentality. Not to be in fear. Not to be distracted by fear. Fear is something that could be subtle. There’s also something that can really hinder us right, in our walk with the Lord.

Carlie Terradez:
Yeah, so this whole series is talking about how to overcome fear. How to live fearless. God created you to be bold, to be intrepid. The definition of fear from the dictionary right here-

Ashley:
Have you got the definition of intrepid? I might need that.

Carlie Terradez:
Intrepid. Well, fearless means to be fear-less. That was deep, wasn’t it?

Ashley:
That is deep. Fearless is fear-less, so without fear.

Carlie Terradez:
It means without fear, but bold, brave, or intrepid, like and adventurer. To be able to boldly go where no one has boldly gone before to get Star Treky, right?

Ashley:
Intrepid.

Carlie Terradez:
To be intrepid because God has put into the hands of man to go forth and subdue and take authority over the things of the world. Right?

Ashley:
Amen.

Carlie Terradez:
Well, how are we going to do that if we’re bound up in fear all the time. If all the time we’re worried about maybe what other people think of us.

Ashley:
Right. That’s fear of man.

Carlie Terradez:
Fear of man, or we’re worried about is God going to provide? Have I got enough resources to do everything that God’s called me to do.

Ashley:
Fear of lack.

Carlie Terradez:
Fear of lack, or what about, I’m afraid of the punishment, of consequences.

Ashley:
Fear of punishment.

Carlie Terradez:
Right. People are afraid of all different kinds of things. Deep down, are we able to trust God to keep to His word? I think if we don’t really understand that God is a good God, that He is true to His word, that He is with us, that He will never leave us or forsake us, that He’s always in us all of the time. If we’re not really captivated by the love of God, fear is going to play a prominent part in our life. And you’re right. It is subtle because all of these different fears and that’s just a few of them.

Ashley:
Right.

Carlie Terradez:
Right? People fear death. They fear pain.

Ashley:
They fear death. They fear life. They fear lack. They fear abundance. They fear persecution. They fear being popular. It’s like, there’s so many different angles to it, it’s almost like fear itself can manifest in our life in different ways.

Carlie Terradez:
Right.

Ashley:
Like I said, it’s subtle to the point where sometimes we don’t even realize we’re carrying that fear. We actually have that fear operating in our life and we don’t even realize it. And then we wonder why we’re hindered in some areas. It’s because of these things.

Carlie Terradez:
If you take fear to an extreme, then you’re going to experience panic attacks, right? For example, mental illness. I think there are a lot of things that stem from fear that is unchecked in our hearts. I remember meeting one time in Arizona. We were doing a conference down there and a man came from ministry and he asked me to lay hands on him. He put his hands out and he asked me to lay hands on him so that he could go back to the hotel room and lay hands on his wife that she might be healed. He said that she was, and this is just a simple healing story, and that’s what I thought. And he said, “Well, you know, you don’t understand. She’s she’s in bed in the hotel room because she’s incapacitated. She’s bed-bound. She’s unable to come down to receive prayer.”

Ashley:
I remember this.

Carlie Terradez:
Yeah. So I want you to lay your hands on me so that the power of God’s in me, so I can go lay hands on my wife in her bed.

Ashley:
That’s how he was believing, and that’s how he wanted to receive.

Carlie Terradez:
Right. And so as I went to lay my hands on him, the Holy Spirit just checked me and said, hang on a second. There’s more to this than what you’re seeing, and he revealed to me, this man, was just in fear. He was the main carer for his wife, and he was just in fear of, of losing her. He loved his wife so deeply. And I think we see that a lot in ministry situations. We forget that there’s a family caring for somebody that’s sick. There’s a lot of fear just in the natural environment, of the consequences of the outcome.

Carlie Terradez:
And so as I went to lay hands on him, I realized that there was a problem with fear. I said that to him. I said, “You know what? What I’m picking up, what I’m sensing when I’m looking at you,” and actually, as I started looking at his eyes, I could see it in his face.

Ashley:
You could see the fear, yeah.

Carlie Terradez:
You can see fear in people, even if they don’t say anything. And so I just spoke the peace of God over him to counteract that fear, and it’s almost like you could see his body relaxing. He was like, ah, you know? You could see him just becoming at peace. And then really, I don’t even really remember doing much beyond that. He went away happy, anyway. I thought nothing of it. There was there’s lots of ministry going on, praying for lots of people.

Carlie Terradez:
Well, that evening I met that man again, and he looked so different. His countenance had completely changed. He just had peace. Peace was operating in his body, and peace is the antidote to fear. If we’re in fear, we’re not in peace. Right? They’re like opposites. And so, as he came back, I didn’t recognize him initially. He was with a woman and he said, “You don’t recognize me.” He kind of caught me out. “You don’t recognize me, do you?” I’m like, “No.” I mean, he looked so different. He said, “You prayed for me this morning, you know, with the fear?” I’m like, “Oh, now I remember.” He said, “Well, I want to introduce you to somebody.” And so as he carried on, he said, “I want you to introduce you to my wife.” I’m starting to think to myself, “Is this the same lady that we were talking about that was bedbound?”

Carlie Terradez:
As he started telling me the whole story, he says, “As I went back up to my hotel room, I was in the elevator, and the power of God hit my wife in her bed.” I didn’t even know God could do stuff like this, right? “The power of God hit my wife in her bed, and all of her symptoms left.” By the time he got up to the hotel room, she was out of bed. She was getting into the shower by herself. All of her pain left. All of her symptoms left. All of her mobility returned. I’m like, “Wow. what just happened?”
The Lord showed me that fear had kept this lady in bondage. You see, she had been trying to, she wanted to believe God. And she started to explain, she wanted to believe God and wean herself off of the medication and start taking some steps to live in faith. But so afraid of losing her was her husband that his fear was actually keeping her in bondage. I’m a big believer that sympathy will kill you. We don’t need people around us to be in sympathy, and it’s really, really difficult when it’s our loved ones. They love us so much, they’re almost loving us to death.

Ashley:
Right.

Carlie Terradez:
He loved his wife so much. He was so desperately afraid of losing her that she felt it was actually hindering her from stepping out in faith. They didn’t even realize the dynamic that was going on there, but the minute that that fear was broken in his life, the power of God flowed and she received a healing.

Ashley:
Wow.

Carlie Terradez:
I mean, to me, that really took God out of a box. I didn’t even know that that that was even a dynamic that could happen.

Ashley:
Yeah, definitely. There’s things happen that God does that we can’t explain sometimes, but it seemed to me like a big part of that healing story was the husband’s fear for his wife.

Carlie Terradez:
Right. And he projected it onto her.

Ashley:
He projected onto her. We need to say this. If you have a spouse or a loved one who’s sick who’s going through something, there’s never any condemnation. Of course, there’s going to be these emotions. It’s tough. I mean, we’ve been there. We had a situation where our daughter was basically just given a week or so to live, so we’ve been there in certain degree.
I want to make sure that we’re sympathetic for that. We understand that that is tough and everything else. We’re not talking about being cold and not actually caring. What we’re talking about is not letting that fear drive you, not letting that fear be predominant in your life.
Sometimes that fear can be, especially when it’s sickness and illness, people can be in fear, and then they can be a fear for themselves as well. I wonder how many times people have had fear in their own lives. Like, “Have I got this disease?” or “What’s going to happen to me? Ff we meditate on that, I really believe, if we meditate on that and really think about that too much, we can actually open up a doorway to even receiving those things. It’s almost like fear is opposite to faith as well, right?

Carlie Terradez:
Yeah.

Ashley:
When we get into fear and we start meditating on things that were wrong, I know I’ve done this. I’ve been fearful of something happening.

Carlie Terradez:
Before it happened. You’re afraid of the possible consequences.

Ashley:
I wonder sometimes, and I don’t want to go off on this to ane extreme where if we think about something it’s going to happen to us. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying, if we meditate on fear, the enemy is trying to try to get us off the word of God. The enemy is basically out to kill, steal, and destroy, and he’ll give us thoughts that are contrary to God’s thoughts, contrary to good things, contrary to love, and if we meditate on those things, we’re allowing those things to take root in us. And then, before long, we could end up having that as a predominant thought. Another stronghold. Now all we’re thinking about is the worst case.

Carlie Terradez:
Yeah. And just simply, we can’t have fear and faith operating in our mind renting space in our head at the same time. So while we’re giving space up in our thinking to thoughts that are of fear, that are maybe not even true. A lot of fear is completely rational. It’s based in lies. We are spending time thinking about things that aren’t going to produce life, aren’t going to produce peace, aren’t going to produce joy and hope in our life.
We’ve taken up our thought life by meditating on something that’s very negative and ultimately very destructive. Whatever you think about it, it says in the scriptures that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. If our hearts are consumed with fear, we’re going to hear it. I say often one of the ways to see what people are believing for is to see the confession that comes out of their mouth.

Ashley:
Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. What you truly believe in will eventually come out.

Carlie Terradez:
Yeah. And you’re going to hear it in how people speak. I think all of us in our life can probably recollect a time or a person in their life that’s essentially negative, and being around negative people on a consistent basis is toxic, isn’t it? It’s hard to be around them for long.

Ashley:
Always thinking about the worst case. Always thinking of something negative to say. It’s almost contagious. Just talking about people, for instance, if someone’s always talking negative about a person, you start thinking that way about that person, even though you didn’t even recognize those traits in them because they’re pointing out all the bad in them, if you like, all the wrong in them.
This is a scripture I like. This is in Romans 12, verse 21, Romans 12 verse 21. It goes along with what we’re saying. It says, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” I really believe that this type of fear we’re talking about, it’s evil. It’s not good because what it’s doing is it’s making you concentrate, it’s making you focus on the negative. It’s making you focus on the worst case.
I do this sometimes. I mean, I wouldn’t recommend doing this all the time. This is something I do sometimes. But if I have a fear, if I’m fearful with something, maybe fear of lack, like we’re going to run out. We’re not going to have the resources to pay our bills, whatever, or fear of being sick. I’ve got a film shoot coming up. I don’t want to get a cold. And we see that little fear gets in your head. Sometimes I eyeball it. Sometimes I think, hang on a minute. What’s the worst case here? Like I say, I don’t meditate on this, but just for a second I think, hang on a minute. What’s the worst that could happen. We might not be able to pay that bill this month. So?
Then we’ll just have to phone the people and say we’ll pay it next month. in town. I mean, it’s like when you actually rationalize things, a lot of the time, fear is irrational.

Carlie Terradez:
It is.

Ashley:
Fear will make you go places in your mind, and you’re more scared of the fear, than the actual thing happening. If you look at what the actual thing is going to be that happens … I remember, this is a fun example, but when I was, I think I was in high school, there was a big kid in school, and apparently I offended him somehow. they said, “He’s going to deck you after school.”

Carlie Terradez:
He’s going to beat you up.

Ashley:
“He’s going to beat you up after school.” All day at school, I was like, “Oh, man, this guy’s going to, I mean, he’s tougher than me. He’s bigger than me.”

Carlie Terradez:
You were imagining it, weren’t you?

Ashley:
I was imagining it. I was in that fear.

Carlie Terradez:
You were feeling the pain before it even hit you.

Ashley:
You know, me, I’m a lover, not a fighter.

Carlie Terradez:
He’s a lover, not a fighter. It’s so true.

Ashley:
I was like, I don’t want to fight this guy. I was like, I don’t even know how I upset him. But anyway, the talk of the school, you know it escalates in school.

Carlie Terradez:
It gets bigger and bigger.

Ashley:
It was like, “He’s going to do this to you and do that to you,” and I was like all scared. Eventually, the bell went for the end of school. I went out there into the school yard, the entry to the school, and he come walking towards me. He punched me once like that, and he said, “Now, don’t say that again,” and walked off. I was like, is that it?

Carlie Terradez:
It wasn’t even that bad.

Ashley:
It really wasn’t that bad. It didn’t even hurt. I was like, that was it? I was in fear all day, in fear and trembling about what was going to do to me, and I was like, that wasn’t even that bad. That’s a silly example.

Carlie Terradez:
But isn’t that what fear does?

Ashley:
I wasn’t planning to share that example. I’ve always embarrassed myself. People will think now I’m some sort of wimp. Didn’t even fight back or anything, but it wasn’t high school. It was elementary. I think it was kindergarten. It was like first grade. I was like three years old. That’s how old I was.

Carlie Terradez:
Are you afraid of what the people think of you?

Ashley:
Now I’m afraid of people thinking I’m a wimp. So anyway.

Carlie Terradez:
But isn’t this how fear starts? It starts as a small seed, as a small thought, and then during the day, because you were focused on it, whatever you focus on gets bigger. It’s like we put a magnifying glass over that thought, it starts to get bigger and longer and more consequences and, before we know it, we’ve built it up to this big thing that’s not even necessarily based on any truth at all, or it might have an element of truth, but we’ve taken out all perspective. We’ve wasted our time. We’ve wasted our energy. We’ve not been productive in other areas because we’ve allowed that thought to consume our thinking, and most of the time, these aren’t even recognized anyway.

Ashley:
Right. A lot of the time, these fears are either irrational. I like false evidence appearing real.

Carlie Terradez:
There’s an acronym that we use for fear. False evidence appearing real. I remember one time when, for years, actually, when we got married this was still plaguing me. I had a terrible fear of escalators.

Ashley:
I remember this.

Carlie Terradez:
It wasn’t even rational. This is where it started. I was in a department store when I was five years old, okay? I remember playing around at the top of the escalator while my mom’s looking at clothes or something. My mom had told me, stay away from the top of the stairs there.

Ashley:
Because her mom … let me explain this. Because her mom said, “Don’t go near the escalators,” what’s the first thing Carlie does? She’s going to go towards the escalators. It’s true.

Carlie Terradez:
He’s got this thing that I’m really stubborn or something.

Ashley:
I’m not going to say anything.

Carlie Terradez:
Strong-willed.

Ashley:
Strong-willed.

Carlie Terradez:
Strong-willed. It’s kept me alive. Anyway. It’s been good.

Ashley:
Strong-willed.

Carlie Terradez:
I was doing something I shouldn’t have been doing anyways, playing around at the top of the escalators. I held onto the handrail. I didn’t realize the handrail was moving, and so I’m holding onto the handrail, but my feet are still at the top of the stairs.

Ashley:
It pulled you in.

Carlie Terradez:
It sucked me down the escalator.

Ashley:
Do you think we could go back and get the security video because because I’d love to see that video of you getting sucked down.

Carlie Terradez:
They probably didn’t have video cameras then anyway.

Ashley:
Your face must have been like … fear. This is really traumatic, and I’m making fun of it. I’m sorry.

Carlie Terradez:
Thank you. You’re so sympathetic. This is years of trauma. Thank you. It sucked me in and you know what? Fear sucks you in doesn’t it? Isn’t that what it does? My feet stayed at the top, but I fell down the escalator, down the metal steps, and cut myself. It was bad.

Ashley:
Traumatic.

Carlie Terradez:
But you know what? I’m getting to 15 years old, and all of my childhood I would avoid going on an escalator. It happened one time. It didn’t happen lots. Just one time. It doesn’t mean it’s going to happen again.

Ashley:
But you had that fear.

Carlie Terradez:
It isn’t rational. Even into adulthood … My kids were little. We were traveling around the subway, the underground in London.

Ashley:
They have those big escalators.

Carlie Terradez:
They were in buggies and strollers, and it’s really a pain if you’re traveling on the underground and you don’t want to use the escalator. You have to stop at stations where they have elevators and things. It’s really inconvenient, but I would go out of my way not to get on an escalator because deep down on the inside of me, I would have this fear that I was going to fall down one again. It wasn’t rational. I mean, I’m a grown woman now, right? I know how to stand.

Ashley:
Well, you’re a woman, but I’m not sure if you’ve grown.

Carlie Terradez:
You’re full of compliments today, aren’t you, honey? I’m a grown woman, now. I fell down one time. It doesn’t mean it’s going to happen again. I know how to hold on.

Ashley:
You’re a big girl now.

Carlie Terradez:
I’m a big girl now. It doesn’t mean it’s going to happen again, but still, every time that fear was real to me. It was real, and every time I thought about going on an escalator or if I made myself do it, when I held on my knuckles, well, you were there. I mean, I’m sweating. My knuckles would go white. My heart would beat really fast. I was getting dizzy. It was a [inaudible 00:16:49, a panic attic, is what it was.

Ashley:
Irrational fear.

Carlie Terradez:
It was completely irrational based on a negative experience. There’s no way to say that that’s going to happen again. And even if it did happen again, I didn’t die the first time.

Ashley:
That’s like I thought.

Carlie Terradez:
The consequence wasn’t even that bad.

Ashley:
Eyeball the fear. What’s the worst that can happen? You could trip and you could hurt yourself a little bit. I mean, escalators aren’t that bad. I mean, so it’s like fear of flying. A lot of people have fear of flying. In some ways people say, well, that’s rational. You’re going up in this plane and it’s dangerous. But you know that flying is actually the safest way of travel. Of commercial airlines the safest way to travel, scientifically proven, statistically, traveling an airplane.
It’s far more dangerous to drive in a car, and it’s more dangerous to walk down a sidewalk than to travel on an airplane. Statistically, because there’s so many millions of people that fly in airplanes and so few people crashes. It’s getting dark. What I mean is, it’s an irrational fear, in a way of an airplane. I can’t understand why, cause you’re going up flying and stuff like that.

Carlie Terradez:
But as believers, here’s the thing, right? Even if the plane did crash, even if the worst thing happened, where are we going to end up?

Ashley:
We’re going to heaven.

Carlie Terradez:
We’re going to heaven. Is that so bad?

Ashley:
Or we’d be a survivor. We’d be okay. I fly all the time. Let’s not be talking to me about crashing on a flight.

Carlie Terradez:
Honey, this series is about being fearless. I think it might be for you.

Ashley:
Okay. I’m going to conquer these fears, I think.

Carlie Terradez:
I think we will see you delivered from fear. Okay. You, too, can be bold and intrepid. You need to watch the whole series because you can first=hand witness Ashley’s transformation as we go through this teaching.

Ashley:
I have a few little things I’m still not sure about. It’s all good.

Carlie Terradez:
The point that we’re making is that fear affects everybody to a certain degree. Everybody, whether you’ve got fear that’s based in a really serious, traumatic past experience. Whether you’ve been through something horrible that you could say, you know what? It’s a legitimate fear. If it could be legitimate, this was a legitimate fear. Or it could be completely irrational fear. This is really not based on very much at all, but it’s still very real to you. Where the fear comes from is almost irrelevant. It still feels very real in the moment.
It is false evidence appearing real, but the Lord has something better for us. Amen. The Lord has something better for us. I want to read this scripture. This is in Hebrews 2, verse 14. It says, “So then, as the children share in flesh and blood, He likewise,” he’s talking about Jesus, “took part in these so that through death,” through His death, through Jesus death, “he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil.” See the devil had had the power of death, right?
But look at verse 15, “And deliver those,” like you, honey, “who, through fear of death were, throughout their lives, subject to bondage.” You see, fear keeps people in bondage, sometimes through the whole life.
Not just the fear of death, but ultimately that is the end result of it. If I’m afraid of being sick, I’m afraid of the doctor’s report. What might happen? I’m afraid of pain. I’m afraid of the treatment I’m afraid of ultimately dying, or maybe it’s fear of lack. If I don’t have enough to eat, then I could be destitute and we might starve to death and we might be homeless. Then we might not survive. Ultimately, everything circulates back to this fear of death. That’s the end result.
I’m afraid of what people might think of me. What if they cast me out, if I become lonely, if I become disassociated with society, if I become an outcast, if I can’t get a job. If we trace all of these things back, ultimately they end in a fear of death. Death of something. A death, a loss, a grief of something.
But Jesus says here He’s come to deliver us from the fear of death who throughout their entire lives was subject to bondage. Jesus has better for us than live in fear, but the first step to overcoming fear, and as this description was saying, fearless means to be less from fear, without fear, to be bold, to be intrepid. In other words, to be very courageous.

Ashley:
Right.

Carlie Terradez:
I remember the Lord’s word to Joshua. In Joshua 1:8 He says, “Do not be afraid, Joshua.” Several times actually. Joshua is always fighting people. He’s always scrapping with people. Do not be afraid, do not be afraid, do not be afraid. Only be bold and very courageous. He keeps repeating himself, actually. I think why does He keep repeating himself to Joshua? Maybe it’s because Joshua needs to hear it.

Ashley:
He needs it. Verse seven, “Only be strong. Only be courageous.” All the way through Joshua 1, Joshua chapter one, Joshua had taken over from Moses and you can understand that that was a big deal for him. He may have doubted himself. He may have thought, am I able to do this? Such big boots to fill, if you like, after Moses.
That’s why the Lord really set him out here on Joshua chapter 1 and showed him, “Don’t be afraid. be courageous.” I always say this. The Lord is never going to ask us to do something that He hasn’t already given us the ability to do. So when Jesus told the disciples, “Do not fear,” when Jesus told the epileptic boys’ father, “Don’t fear, only believe,” that’s because He’s given us the ability to do that. He’s given us the ability to not fear. He’s given us the ability to just change our thoughts away from that fear and put them onto the truth, put them on to faith.

Carlie Terradez:
Right. And ultimately, fear is part of the curse. It’s part of the curse that we’ve been redeemed from. So in the same way you might attack sickness or you might attack poverty in your life, or you might take sin in your life, you know what? Jesus redeemed me from all of these things. I’m not going to live a life of sin. I’m not going to live a life of sickness. I know that’s not from God and I’m going to attack you, right?
We’re big believers in healing in our family. We’re also big believers that God has prospered us in our family. We attack lack, right? We attack lack and we attack sickness. But how often have we just lived with fear? We’ve just learned to live with it.
Jesus doesn’t want us to live with fear. He wants us to have the same hatred for fear in our life, that same intolerance for fear in our life, than we do for sickness or poverty or any of those other things that He paid for as part of his atonement. It’s not a normal characteristic of a believer, and it’s different. We’re not talking here about the fear of the Lord. We’re just talking about reverence. We’re talking about a fear that involves torment.

Ashley:
Right.

Carlie Terradez:
There’s a scripture in it in 1 John 4. Have you got that in the passage translation?

Speaker 2:
1 John 4:16 is in the passion here. It says “We have come into an intimate experience with God’s love, and we trust in the love He has for us.” I like that. We trust in the love that He has for us. “God is love. Those who are living in love are living in God, and God lives through them.” Amen. “By living in God, love has been brought to its full expression in us that we may fearlessly the day of judgment because all that Jesus now is, so are we in this world.”

Carlie Terradez:
Amen.

Speaker 2:
That’s there. 1 John 4, 15 through to 17. That’s in the passion translation.

Carlie Terradez:
This is in the modern English the modern English, which is really similar to the new King James, but in verse, what have I got here? In verse 16, it says, “and we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. When we come to know and really believe the love that God has for us, it changes us.” You see, in verse 17, it says, “in this way, God’s love is perfected in us so that we may have boldness.” Remember, one of the characteristics of being fearless is being bold. It’s being brave. It’s being intrepid. It says, “we might have boldness on the day of judgment because as He is, as Jesus is, so are we in this world.” Verse 18, “There is no fear, no fear at all in love, in God’s love, because perfect love casts out fear.” God’s love is the antidote to any fears that we might have in our life.
And it says, “Because fear has to do with punishment or in some translations, torment.

Speaker 2:
Torment. In new King James fear involves torment.

Carlie Terradez:
Right. And that’s the thing. Fear unchecked will torment us. It will hold us in bondage, but it says, “whoever fears is not perfect in love. God loves us so much. He paid the price for our fear that we might not have to live in fear, not have to live in bondage and may not may not be subject to the torment.”
In other words, not let the devil mess and rent space in their head by suggesting to us unfounded fear that’s based on lies or by magnifying a previous negative experience and blowing up into all proportions.

Speaker 2:
Out of proportions, yeah.

Carlie Terradez:
Out of all proportions, right? Because the fear comes from the enemy. He had the power of death. As we read in Hebrews chapter two, Jesus defeated the power of death. He defeated the power of the enemy who has the power of fear to operate in our life.
The enemy doesn’t have any power in our life. Only what we give him when we truly choose to place our trust in his word, rather than in God’s word. When we do that, that’s where fear creeps in.
So right now, this is the very beginning of our series called Fearless. I hope you can join us for the next program. We’re really going to dig down into this, but I want you to be set free from fear. Jesus, it’s not God’s best for you to live and tolerate fear in any area of your life. Let’s pray for the people.

Speaker 2:
Amen. Yeah.

Carlie Terradez:
I want to see millions of people set free in this very area.

Ashley:
Amen. Right now, Lord, we pray for everyone watching and listening. I thank you. Your will for us is to not have fear, not have torment, in our life. Right now we pray for people listening and watching who have fear, who have torment in their life. Right now we say, no more fear in Jesus love.

Carlie Terradez:
Perfect love casts out fear.

Ashley:
Yes. Absolutely. I think that they’re going to have a new revelation of how much You love them and how secure they are in You. And I thank you. They’re not going to experience that fear anymore, in Jesus’ name.

Carlie Terradez:
Amen.

Ashley:
Thank you Lord Amen. Praise God. Well, thanks for being with us today. We’ll be back real soon. And until next time, remember, don’t just live a normal life when Jesus paid for you to be able to live the Abundant Life.
Joanne was believing for our daughter Hannah’s healing, we loved God and we loved the word of God, but because no one taught us the truth, we didn’t see that manifest until we understood the truth about healing.

Carlie Terradez:
Our whole family has been impacted by this understanding of what Jesus has already done. And so now we’re living life out of victory rather than living life out of defeat.

Ashley:
And that’s why we’re so excited here at Terradez Ministries. We want people to be empowered to walk in the promises of God.
