Confidence! 5/3/17
Confidence! 5/3/17




Proverbs 3:26 (KJV)
26  For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.  

In my daily Bible readings (for MY edifying!)-I NEED to hear from God myself and FOR myself!!!!!!...................

I added a daily reading of a Proverb.

There are 31 Proverbs and one can easily read one a day just by following the calendar.

I am in a season of earnest "seeking the Lord" and spending more time in fervent PRAYER, and I found great comfort in the above Scripture-

" FOR THE LORD SHALL BE THY CONFIDENCE!"

I, personally, have a DREADED medical decision to make soon, and I want to make them with CONFIDENCE!!!

CONFIDENCE-from <H3688> (kacal); properly fatness , i.e. by implication (literal) the loin (as the seat of the leaf fat ) or (generic) the viscera ; also (figurative) silliness or (in a good sense) trust :- confidence, flank, folly, hope, loin.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Interesting enough on its own, I looked up the definition of "VISCERA" and the dictionary defines "VISCERA" as:

plural noun, singular viscus
[vis-kuh s] (Show IPA)
1.
Anatomy, Zoology. the organs in the cavities of the body, especially those in the abdominal cavity.
2.
(not used scientifically) the intestines; bowels.

To confess, my doctor wants me to undergo a colonoscopy, and YES, I am a man and I am terrified!

I sincerely PRAY that is too much information for you!!??

I well know this:

1 John 4:18 (KJV)
18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.  

And this:

Hebrews 2:15 (KJV)
15  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  

And this true axiom:

" DANGER FEARED IS FOLLY, DANGER FACED IS FREEDOM!!!"

WE are supposed to live life in fear!!

God IS and should be our "CONFIDENCE!!!!"

Psalm 91:3 (KJV)
3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

Psalm 91:9-10 (KJV)
9  Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;  

10  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

Habakkuk 3:17-19 (KJV)
17  Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:  

18  Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.  

19  The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.

Today, I:

Psalm 130:5 (KJV)
 
5  I wait for the LORD , my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.

I sincerely PRAY that you also "IN HIS WORD DO I HOPE!!!!"

TODAY, please heed the Words of Jesus for whatever YOU are facing in this life:

Mark 9:29 (KJV)
 
29  And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

This life IS a battleground for me as well as you.

At NO time can WE take off our shoes and rest:

1 Peter 5:8-9 (KJV)
 
8
 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  

9  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

GOD BLESS YOU!
