July 25 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  FEAR OF UNCERTAINTY

July 25 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  FEAR OF UNCERTAINTY

Romans 8:15 “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

The fear of the unknown has gripped the hearts of so many during this time of uncertainty.  Yet, we as saints of God do not have to be slaves to this fear as others.  We have a Savior whose Spirit lives inside of us. I encourage you today, brothers and sisters, to keep your trust in the hands of the One who already knows the beginning and the end.  He is “Abba Father,” our Peace, the very God that does not fail and will not let us fall.

July 24 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

July 24 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

Proverbs 3:24 “When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid:  yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.”

How many times have we heard the statement, “It is my God-given right” and never stopped to think about its meaning? As saints of the most high God, we have the God-given right NOT to be plagued by the enemy, but we exercise the right to both walk in peace and to rest when we lay down to sleep.  There was a time when I struggled with anxiety, unable to sleep at night because I was being tormented in my mind night after night.  But one day, the Lord reminded me to stand up for my rights!  I admonish you today to do the same:  take back from the enemy your God-given right to walk in peace as a child of God.

July 23 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  SURROUNDED BUT NOT CONSUMED

July 23 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  SURROUNDED BUT NOT CONSUMED

Psalm 27:3 “Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear:  though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.”

I can remember years ago, when I was under relentless attacks from the enemy.  My children were acting unruly, ex-husband was verbally abusive, coworkers were disrespectful to me, and my own health challenges kept me in and out of the hospital.  I was surrounded by trouble, yet the Lord kept my heart and I thank Him!  Be encouraged today for the Lord is on your side, forever lifting and upholding you.  You have no reason to fear for that which surrounds you will not consume you!

July 22 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  I AIN’T SCARED

July 22 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  I AIN’T SCARED

Mark 6:50 “For they all saw him, and were troubled.  And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer:  it is I; be not afraid.”

Here, Jesus shows again to his disciples, that He is the miracle worker and that He has all power as he walked upon the water; yet they feared. God wants us to trust Him (Psalms 27:1) and He will always be there (Matthew 28:20).  We cannot allow what we see happening around us to bring fear into our hearts. He is our strength.  Don’t give up, don’t buckle under, don’t fear, but look to Jesus.

July 21 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  FAITH OR FEAR ~ MY CHOICE IS FAITH

July 21 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  FAITH OR FEAR ~ MY CHOICE IS FAITH

Psalm 56:4 “In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.”

As I entered the state of Alabama, returning home from an out-of-town trip one day, I noticed a sign informing all those entering the state that the COVID-19 count had soared to record heights.  Psalm 56:4 says, “In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.”  The thought entered my mind, “It is not who you are or where you live but to whom you belong.”  Today, let’s take comfort in the fact that we belong to God and He remains in control.

July 20 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR ~ WALK WITH GOD, NOT WITH FEAR

July 20 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR ~ WALK WITH GOD, NOT WITH FEAR

Matthew 8:26 “And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?  Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.”

I can remember a time when I had to walk home at night by myself.  Although I was afraid, if I had just one friend to walk with me, I would be okay.  Now that I am saved, I have no reason to fear because Jesus walks with me everyday.  Saints, when trouble comes and fear wants to grip you as it did the disciples on the boat, remind yourself that Jesus is walking with you.  Have faith in knowing that God is able to do far above what we can ask or think and has all power to bring calm to any stormy situation.

July 19 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  THERE CAN BE NO ENLIGHTENMENT  WITHOUT HIS LIGHT

July 19 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  THERE CAN BE NO ENLIGHTENMENT WITHOUT HIS LIGHT

Psalm 27:1 “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?  The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

There was a time when I walked in darkness and doubt.  But one day, I embraced the plan of salvation for my life.  I repented of my sins, was baptized in Jesus Name, and the Lord filled me with gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues.  The Lord is now my light and my salvation; I walk in a state of understanding and enlightenment. The Lord is my strength and there is no one or no thing I have to fear.

July 18 I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  BE NOT AFRAID, ONLY BELIEVE

July 18 I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  BE NOT AFRAID, ONLY BELIEVE

Mark 5:36 “As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.”

We are living in a time of fear, confusion, and uncertainty in the world.  Our hope must always be in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We must always believe, ask, seek, and knock for God’s presence, protection, and provision in our lives (Matthew 7:7-8; John 14:13-14).  Daily renewed spiritual strength and faith comes from the Word of God and prayer.  When we trust God and His Word, we are reminded that no evil and no plague will harm us; therefore, we have no reason to fear.

July 17 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  FEAR NOT

July 17 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR: FEAR NOT

 

Hebrews 13:5-6 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have:  for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Did you know that when you meditate on seeds (thoughts) of fear you allow your will to partner with the plans of the enemy?  Eventually, you will speak those thoughts into the atmosphere, creating fertile ground for fear to grow, giving credence and power to the enemy to work in your life.  But the good news is, that you can overcome fear.  The Apostle Paul tells us in Hebrews 13:6, that we can boldly say that the Lord is our helper (succor)-our assistance and support in times of distress.  So say this now, “The Lord is my helper,  I will not fear.”

July 16 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  GOD CONTINUES TO CARE AND PROVIDE

July 16 ~ I HAVE NO REASON TO FEAR:  GOD CONTINUES TO CARE AND PROVIDE

Genesis 26:24 “And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father:  fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake.”

How reassuring it is to know that even in times of uncertainty, unrest, disease and virus, God will be with us to meet our every need!  While famine was in the land, God consistently provided for Isaac and his children.  Though Isaac had many disputes with the enemy over wells that both he and his father Abraham dug, the Lord provided for His people in the midst of a drought.  Just as God sustained His people then, He will do the same for us today.  He is always concerned about the things that concern us and promises to bless His people.
