A spiritual leader will not take decisions based on the fear of men or of circumstances.
I have a large verse hanging in the front room of my house that reads, "If you fear God, you need fear nothing else". That’s the Living Bible paraphrase of Isaiah 8:12 and 13. That verse has been of tremendous help to me in the last 25 years.
Let me share with you some of the truths that I’ve learnt from the Lord on this matter of fear.
First of all, I’ve learnt that fear is one of the main weapons in Satan’s armoury.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him (Ps. 37:7).
Have you prayed and prayed and waited and waited, and still there is no manifestation? Are you tired of seeing nothing move? Are you just at the point of giving it all up? Perhaps you have not waited in the right way? This would take you out of the right place the place where He can meet you.

“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!”.
Have you ever heard someone say “Praise the Lord!” I have heard people exclaim this in different situations. Some did it in the midst of joyful circumstances such as at the birth of a child or the baptism of a new convert to Christ. I have also see others do it when faced with great crises or situations filled with overwhelming sorrow and losses. To see someone “praise God” while dealing with the news of a lost job or even the death of close friend or loved one is impressive indeed. So what is this thing called “praise” and why we to offer it to God?
Jesus was saying how much more likely will God give justice to us and more quickly. Like the widow, we are meant to frequently ask God for things whether it is justice or anything the Holy Spirit puts on our hearts. For some things God answers really fast, but not all. Justice was given to the widow, and justice will be given to us by God.
