No Fear! 11/4/15
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.
In the very midst of God's incredible BLESSINGS he has bestowed on me, I awoke (PTL for awakening AGAIN!) paralyzed with and by FEAR!
a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.
SMILE-My son Joshua LOVES to remind me "that I have been DYING and/or going broke for MANY year!!!!"
Just a cursory glance at any given days "news" is enough to stress one out!!!
WE are daily bombarded with "impending" volcano eruptions, near comet misses, possible earthquakes, climate change, sun darkening, wars, famines-the list is endless!
And, as stated above eloquently by our Lord and Savior Jesus:
"FEAR HATH TORMENT!"
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Sometimes, beloved, WE just need to get a "SOUND MIND!"
:- sound mind.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.
HOW do WE get a "SOUND MIND?"
1 John 4:1 (KJV)
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
One of satan's greatest weapons is fear!
And sadly, even Christians too often use FEAR as a business tool.
There ia highly profitable and "successful" Church accounting company that sends out a glossy brochure, oftentimes with the cover depicting a Pastor in handcuffs.
They use FEAR of the IRS to win customers to their accounting business!
When confronted by unreasonable FEAR, a good place to defeat FEAR is found in:
Psalm 127:1 (KJV)
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
DAILY, WE must remind OURSELVES:
IF GOD BROUGHT US TO IT, HE WILL SEE US THROUGH IT!!!!"
REMEMBER God PROMISED to: walk us "THROUGH the valley!!!"
Psalm 23:4 (KJV)
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
And again, to use my well worn quote from Mark Twain, "I have had a lot of troubles in my life, BUT thank God most of it NEVER happened!"
Matthew 6:31-32 (KJV)
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
How true is the old adage:
Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 (KJV)
10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
11 When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?
How true is that that the more money we make/have, the more the bills come in!!!!
Today, please TRY to:
Matthew 6:34 (KJV)
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
1 Timothy 6:8 (KJV)
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)
10 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.
AMEN AND AMEN!!
