‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ ”Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
This one has taken me decades to have faith in. I believe in our early walk with Christ we all have doubts about the validity of His word. Do not be ashamed. Read your Bible. How long did it take Moses. Abraham and Jacob to be blessed with absolute faith in our Heavenly Beloved? Decades.
Now, when there is circumstances beyond my control that look like they are heading for certain disaster, I am afraid and pray.
Jehovah comforts and reassures me. He walks with me through them.
Sometimes they are averted by Divine will.
Sometimes I must walk through them, with the Holy Spirit by my side, because Jehovah is teaching me something through this experience.
Now, when the wicked ones scheme and plot against me I am afraid and pray.
Again, Jehovah comforts and reassures me. I am filled with Divine peace and strength to face them. In the moment of confrontation the Holy Spirit fills me with His infinite wisdom and the wicked ones go down in flames. They are infuriated and confused where I gained the wisdom and strength. Jehovah laughs at them.
It is natural to be afraid when these and other circumstances occur in our lives.
The best Christian defense is to pray, wait and obey and grow in faith. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for walking with me through my troubles, snares and sorrows whenever I humbly cry out to You. Thank you in the name of He who is my best friend that is always there for me Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
