FEAR is an enemy straight from hell, and satan uses it to weaken us in every area. It refocuses us away from God and His mighty Word. Desires of the enemy are to capture our mind in darkness and fog, our thoughts with confusion and doubts. Whereas God-thoughts toward us bring love and strength; God is our rear guard; nothing can sneak up unnoticed by Holy Spirit who indwells us; He promises us His care and protection. We battle the devil with the Word of God sealed in our minds~


Isaiah 4:5-6

    5 And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection).

    6 And there shall be a pavilion for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.


                             



You, my Lord, have placed a canopy of Your glory over us and it is the defense of Your love and protection.

Isaiah 58:8 (Amp) Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.


Indeed we have a rear guard so nothing can sneak up behind us, as our Holy Spirit sees all. Our world today offers many tools for the devil to frighten people. The pandemic was/is a biggie and has the assistance of the media to spread the fear. Threats from around the world continue to shout fear. China’s inroads into our power grid, and they’re seeking world domination gives rise to consternation. Violence is on the rise everywhere. What is threatening our future? The enemy would have us believe we are alone and hopelessly drowning in evil.


 

    

 

However, those who know their God can relax, because Jahova loves us and is mightier than our enemy; He will help bring us into the best place, He will bring us through all circumstances. See:


Romans 8:28 We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.


 

 Freedom from fear comes from being obedient to God; studying His Word and choosing to be guided by the Holy Spirit in our words and actions. This way we come to know our God, His character, His power, His faithfulness, and His love for us. Then we can trust Him and be secure in His protection. Fear is deleted when we know Who our God is. We trust Him.

 



                                        


My friends, do not allow fear to rule your life! Rather become deeply acquainted with, and develop a close relationship with our mighty Lord God. If fear has captured your mind, FREE it with the Word and promises of our God Who loves and cherishes us as His family.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
