“IF WE TRULY BELIEVED”…IN WHO WALKED BY OUR SIDE
…WE WOULD NEVER WALK IN FEAR OR DOUBT AGAIN.
“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
“Really…what causes us to fear? Is it the uncertainty of the unexpected in a world that appears to be falling apart before our eyes? Or perhaps the unknowing of what takes place around us spiritually? There could be a number of things which causes us to fear and doubt, whether it’s for family, job insecurities, our walk of faith being “lukewarm”, or just our unknown future. The fact is as children of the living God, sealed with the Holy Spirit and saved by His grace…what should we fear? The Lord stated that; “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 and again He states; “But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.” If we indeed believe and have faith in our Lord who foreknew us, called us, predestined and redeemed us at the price of shedding His blood on the Cross…then whom shall we fear? “If God is for us, who can be against us?” We have to start really beholding our Lord and savior before us in ALL that we do in faith and in love until this reality becomes a routine habit of thinking. The time is now that we as the body of Christ stand in and on our faith, because this is how we overcome this world. No longer swaying to deceptive illusions and things that tickle our ears to please the flesh and its desires, but truly stand up and present ourselves before the Lord as one worthy of his / her calling. This flesh is very weak to the things that the eye sees and has become an easy target in which that the enemy no longer appear to be threaten by. Why is that? Because so many of us as “Believers” compromise with the enemy without even knowing…”My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”Hosea 4:6. I know being human has its flaws and without those flaws and defects we would have never needed a Savior…Praise God for my defects, because I am guilty more than I wish to recall and I consider myself unworthy even to be in the thought of God as one worth saving, but He showed me mercy and extended that amazing grace even unto me. Amen. How compassionate, kind, loving and generous a God we serve. Now brothers and sisters, it’s time for us to make that calling sure and realize who walks along side of us in this walk of faith, for He said; “Be strong and courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them (the enemy). For it is the LORD your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you.” These are the words of an ALL powerful, All knowing, ALL seeing God who is not a man that He should lie, that keeps us as the apple of His eye. WOW! If you believe just one letter, one word in the Word of God…then claim these promises of God on your life this day and watch what Our God, our King and Lord can do through you with such a faith…my God…we would usher in the Kingdom of God before our eyes, because we would be more than ready for the appearing of our Lord and King, who is worthy to be praised and magnified. Amen. Having said that I will say this, let us not walk in fear any longer, or doubt that we may see the miracles of old right before our eyes as in those days. He is the same God yesterday, today and forever. We MUST return to that original faith as when we first believed in our Lord as Savior, as the days of the Apostles and our forefathers of faith…God said it…I believe it…that’s that. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”Hebrews 11:1. Only believe. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob keep you and watch over you and your love ones against ALL unseen hurt harm and danger. May He bless you in ALL you do and touch as we move from faith to faith and glory to glory. God bless.
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Roman 8:31-39. AMEN!!!!
REMEMBER!!! Go take a peek at the novel if you haven’t yet. “Battlefield of Angels” It’s a glimpse at spiritual warfare around us and rate this. Though fictional in content many of the events are realand a shadow of my life.
