Fear Not!!

There appears to be a prevailing attitude of fear permeating the Body of Christ.

  1. If it is not Jehad, then it is Isis
  2. If it is not Isis, it is racism.
  3. If it is not racism, it is the political climate.
  4. Oh Dear God if it is not the political climate it is the President – can anyone believe that one?

God’s word tellS that we do not need to live in fear:

  • Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4 NIV) [All scriptures are from the New International Version unless otherwise stated].
  • The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid (Psalm 27:1)?
  • The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me (Psalms 118:6)?

What does The Lord say in the New Testament about fear?

  • Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One, who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:2).
  • For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him, we cry “Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:15).
  • Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 
  • So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them. We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat (Heb. 12:5-10).
Someone once said to me, “You are so brazen.”  Well, I took that as a compliment because I know that I am loved, and I have no need to fear any human being.
I have had someone tell me that they will NEVER do anything that I have asked them to do, and you know what. What I was telling them to do was what the Lord Commanded all believers to do. So I did not take it as a personal affront.  They were disobedient, blatantly disobedient to God. Does he Love them any less? Not!!!
 So.. The Lord says fear not.  There is no sin that you have committed that He will not forgive, and there is NO enemy or force on earth or in heaven that can harm you.

Live a fear free life and believe that promise my friends.
