Just because times are tough do not live in fear

I keep hearing and seeing the news all around the world. Some places there have been earth quakes, some bush fires while now of this writing, the Corona Virus (Covid-19) has been causing devastation and death wherever it can. While the danger is real, you don’t need to live in fear. Firstly put your trust in God who can deliver you from evil. And then continue with prayer and thanksgiving unto the Lord Jesus. Obviously, you are to also take due precautions and not deliberately land yourself in trouble.

Fear leads to worry and worrying won’t help you

“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” ~ Luke 12:22-26

“He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” ~ Mark 4:39-40

Fear makes the problem seem more than what it is

By being fearful you don’t end up getting your problems solved. Not a bit. You need to focus on the right steps to help yourself. Remind yourself that you are loved by God and he will be there for you in the hardest of times, if you only believe in him.

“I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me.  He freed me from all my fears.” ~ Psalm 34:4

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.” ~ Romans 8:38-39

Fear of man (or woman) only keeps you down in life

Fear no man nor woman because it is not worth it. Such fear is a trap. People lose a lot of things, even their souls due to this, because they keep confirming to the sinister schemes of the sinful world. Reject this fear of man (or woman) and be a true believer in God.

The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe. (Proverbs 29:25)

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28)

Fear can keep you away from the Will of God

Beware of fear, because it can keep you away from the Will of God. Be strong and courageous for the Lord God and reject any fear of people and society when it comes to doing all the good things God has planned for you.


Then David said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished. (1 Chronicles 28:20)

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” (Romans 8:15)

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)

And finally..

I pray that you are able to make a decision to live without fear for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God be with you!

Prayers leading to Christmas – 5

O Lord God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, fill me with your light. Let all darkness flee from my life, and let your light shine in me. Take away all the things from me, that may cause me to walk in darkness. Let the light of your Holy Word, always enlighten my path, that I may not stumble. By your Holy Spirit lead me each day, that I might grow more and more, in your Son Jesus Christ, the light of the world. Like the Magi, help me to discern, the light to be followed, till I reach my final abode with you, in heaven forever. I also pray especially that your light in me helps others to believe in you O Lord and the Gospel. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

God’s angels fight against the darkness

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Fearing not what comes by.
They are secure in his mighty name,
Seeking his glory, not their fame.

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Knowing they will prevail.
They stand for Christ all bold,
Seeking his Gospel to be told.

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Desiring holiness, truth and justice.
They shout God’s praises in eternity,
Seeking his victory with certainty.

God’s angels fight against the darkness,
Praying only to the Lord above.
They guard God’s innocent in trouble,
Seeking their deliverance on the double.

 

Refrain from unbelief O lover of God

Refrain from unbelief O lover of God,
Holy is the Lord where ever he has trod.
Keep away from falsehood and sin,
The Lord knows your thoughts within.

Dwell upon his mercy and grace,
He is the Lord so seek his face.
Be led by God’s Spirit day after day,
Cling to Jesus the life, the truth and the way.

Hear by the word of God for sure,
Build up your faith in truth pure.
Heed not the voices of the Evil thief,
So that you don’t have eternal grief.

Refrain from unbelief O lover of God,
Always give to God’s will your nod.
Fear not the wicked nor the terror of night,
God is mighty to save you alright.

Never give up on your godly belief,
Salvation now and forever is true relief.
Don’t go by instinct as it might go wrong,
Lean on God’s word and make it your song.
