WE ARE FREE! but o ,how we chain ourselves up. Fear, the evangelist said on the radio is False Evidence Appearing Real.
The -ites are after me……..
Have you got itis today, I nearly fell for that one yesterday! There is NO fear in LOVE.(dread does not exist!)
but fullgrown (complete ,perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror.
If you don’t want to hear the crazy lady get going about living the christian life then stop here……..
The feeling of fear or fearful thoughts is simply our enemy satan trying to distract us from God and his will for our lives.We may feel fear at various times in our lives but we can CHOOSE to trust God and if we need to ,do it “afraid”. 1 Timothy 2.v7says…
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity,but a spirit of POWER ,of loveand self-discipline. (italics mine)
Trouble = fear=what if
Satan is trying to stop us going forward in Gods will and in his plans for our lives.
What can we do about it? Yes its up to us to do something!
1. PRAY…. some of us get scared at that word…not the flowery kind of prayers ….talk to God…he’s your Father tell him how you feel, rant and rave if you want to….. He can take it!
Get emotional/mental victory over the fear feeling. Focus on God. yes… Praise him for all the past things he’s helped you through..you thought they were bad but you are still here…trust him to do it again…He will!
2.RECEIVE…..God has blessings,strange churchy word but can’t think of a better one just now…. good things perhaps but better than that…..Maybe we are having to do things we don’t like or we think won’t work.Our trust and reliance on God must be greater than what we personally feel.
The disciples were fishing but had no catch, they were experienced men ,they knew thier trade, there were no fish….. but Jesus tells them ,lower the nets again! We may not like what we hear but we need to obey God not our feelings.
So whatever your fear is, whatever seems to be falling apart…or if the ites are after you
Remember God is WITH you….
God is FOR you
You can overcome
Trusting God brings life, BELIEVING brings REST…….YOU are MORE than a conquer in Christ Jesus….go get ’em!
