Fearless Friday

I’ve said it before.

I’ll say it again.

Please hear me.

There is much going on in our world today that causes fear.

Fear is a necessary response to some things.

Fear alerts us to problems.

Fear let’s us know that we need to take action.

Several years ago I read “The Gift of Fear” by Gavin De Becker, and found it very helpful.

Well it turns out now, that he has written yet another book on fear.

Which I have not yet read.

But I will.

Here is what I want you to hear, from a book that I HAVE read. A lot.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:17 (ESV)

I am not at all saying I am never afraid, what I am saying, is that I must choose not to let fear overtake me.

I must leave this very strong emotion in the hands of the One who loves me most.

Whatever happens, He is still on the throne.

Until next time.

Things to Consider

Greetings.

The Wednesday after a long weekend.

Anyone besides me still playing catch up?

It was a busy weekend, but even so, I was able to listen to several podcasts.

Three statements left me with things to consider.

I believe I will make time to consider them now.

#1. Was a comment – “There is a difference between your PURPOSE and your ASSIGNMENT”. – Lance Wallnau

#2. “Wait in Hebrew means sit down and shut up”. – Benny Hinn.

#3. Was a statement – “Things change in the spirit when we cease to listen to our enemies”. – Lance Wallnau

#1. I KNOW my purpose, but my assignment? There are so many choices. Finding the one that God has for me is the issue.

It will take a bit of #2 to sort it all out. The mind is willing, the flesh is weak.

And #3, Things will be much easier to hear when I’m not listening to all the noise of the enemy and his cohorts.

So there you have it.

A weekend’s worth of comments to mull over.

Tell me what you have to mull over in the comments.

Come; Mull with me.

Until next time …
