Don’t Be Afraid

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. ~Isaiah 41:10

God wants to give His children insight and Satan is at work in our life to prevent us from receiving from God what God wants us to have. The adversary causes as much turmoil and havoc as can be done by way of issues, distractions and worries, and each time we move to a new level in our growth in Christ the devil ups his game.

Do not be afraid. ~Deuteronomy 31:6, 8; Joshua 1:9; Psalm 23:4; Proverbs 29:25; Isaiah 41:10,13; Matthew 10:29-31; Romans 8:15; 2 Timothy 1:7; Hebrews 13:6; 1 Peter 5:7; Revelation 1:17

Don’t allow your mind to be filled with anxieties and worries. Fear is outside the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Fear comes from the fallen nature or from the adversary himself.
~2 Timothy 1:7

If you get nervous about something, pray about it. It is the best source of relief we can have. ~Mark 11:24-25; Luke 6:27-28, 11:13; John 15:16; Romans 8:26; Philippians 4:6-7; Colossians 4:2; James 5:14-15; 1 John 5:14.

Father, I’m so grateful for your Word of the truth and thankful for the gospel. I ask if there is anyone that is reading this that does not know you personally, that the Spirit of God would convict them of the sin of unbelief that they are committing against God. That in the quietness of their own mind and in the privacy of their own heart, he/she would trust Jesus Christ and what He has done when He died on the cross for their sins, was buried, and rose (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Giving you all the praise and the glory. I ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Don’t Worry!

“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your specific requests known to God.” Philippians 4:6

– In everything that life may bring across our paths, the Lord is ready to help us.

– There is no situation or circumstance that is beyond His help.

– Worry, anxiety and fear undermine our faith and confidence.

– Keep on bringing your requests to the Lord and see what He will do.

PRAYER: Lord, thank You that You are with me in every situation I face. Nothing is too difficult for You and You will help me, so I do not need to be anxious or fearful. Amen.


Worrying Doesn’t Help

“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?”
Words of Jesus in Matthew 6:27 (read verses 27-30)

Who or what is pursuing you? Is it a past mistake? Is it an old enemy? Is it your conscience? Is it a nagging sense of guilt? Is it someone who wants to do you physical harm? Is it a physical illness?

In the middle of all the storms and struggles of life, where do you go to find peace and security? There is only One who can be a true and lasting refuge. Just One! In our busy world, we often let ourselves get preoccupied with worrisome and inconsequential things. What does this get us? Far from making our lives more productive or adding to our longevity, we know for a fact that worry hastens our demise and robs our days of joy and grace.

Have a wonderful Tuesday with God’s blessings!!
