I apologize for the delay in the posting of the final posts on this important matter, but here we are now. Once again (with reference to the previous post – Part 6): DO NOT park on the negative issues ; Or return to them, Because then you could fall into Read more…
I write as a Bible believing Christian and not as a black African. I do not seek to be politically correct or socially acceptable. My interest here is to point the attention of society to biblical truth, its relevance, accuracy and adaptability to situation in every country under the sun. Read more…
1 John 4:18 says “...fear has torment.” Perhaps you have felt tormented by the fear of dying, the fear of cancer, the fear of running out of money, or the fear of what someone could do to hurt you. Today, we put an end to the torment, and punishment of fear.
1. Reject and resist whatever isn’t from God. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given you the spirit of fear—but power, love and a sound mind.” Fear is from the devil. Don’t tolerate it for a second.
2. Speak to fear—Mark 11:23 says, “...say to this mountain (of fear) ‘be removed and cast into the sea’ and do not doubt, but believe those things you say, shall happen.” The spoken word has more power than the running thoughts in your head. Speak to those thoughts of fear and command them to go. (more…)
[caption id="attachment_453" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Afraid?"][/caption] Today we’re fasting from the granddaddy of all wrong thinking: “I’m afraid.”
Fear is at the root of just about every negative thing that happens in our lives. We’re afraid of failing, afraid of being alone, or rejected; afraid of running out of money; afraid that people will let us down; that we won’t find a spouse, or a job; and the list goes on and on. All fear is rooted in the core belief that God’s Word won’t work. For example, the fear of not having enough is rooted in the fear that Philippians 4:19 isn’t true. If you believe that “God will supply all your needs according to His riches...” then fear leaves.
Let’s fast from the thought “I’m afraid.”
1. Meditate on the fact that God’s Word is true. In John 17:17 Jesus said, “Thy Word is truth.” What God says is fact—whether you feel it, whether you see it, whether you have ever experienced it.
2. Consider God’s track record. 1 Kings 8:56 says, "Thanks be to the Lord. He has given rest to His people Israel. He has done all that He promised. Every word has come true of all His good promise, which He promised...” (New Life Version). He has done all that He has promised. He has never failed. Fear leaves when you can rely on something that can’t fail. There are over 1000 predictions or prophecies in the Bible—promises that God made before they happened. The chances of merely 17 of these coming to pass is ONE out of 450 billion x 1 billion x 1 trillion! Yet, not one of these 1000 promised have failed. In fact, to this day, 668 of them have already been fulfilled. What does that tell us? God keeps His Word. (more…)
