If Fear is a Lie, What is the Truth?

 

Jo’s fear stomping this week.

Those creepy little thoughts and voices have no place in our heads and in our hearts, and we do not need to listen.

Time to walk in the confidence that God is the God who means what He says and does what He means.

How do you face your fears?
Head on or tail between your legs?

Do they sneak up in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep?
Immobilize you in  your hectic moments?
Ambush you when you are trying to savor a taste of joy?

Or are they just there  quiet but constant; a dismal hum in the background?

Are the fear of  paying the bills?
Keeping your job?
The kids? Your marriage?
Your health?

How bad does it need to get to get your step out of synch from God and your ear out of tune to His voice?

Fear and Faith are Reciprocals~

“inversely related or proportional; opposite”

North and South are reciprocals.
Life and Death are reciprocals.

In fractions, 3/4 and 4/3 are reciprocals.

The same thing but reversed.

Do you remember back in the day, when we had film in our cameras?
Do you remember how the black and white images on the negatives were inverted?

Reciprocals.

God, the Creator, gave us FAITH.
Satan, the Destroyer, perverted FAITH and introduced FEAR.

One or the other.  We can’t occupy both at the same time.

TRUTH ?  LIE?

Two other reciprocals.
Two little words that will direct your destiny.

God is Truth. His word is Truth.

NO Gray Zone with this one.
This must be settled in our hearts.

Satan’s biggest attack is against the Truth of God.
And His biggest Lie is the Lie that God WILL NOT or CAN NOT do what He said.

We need to choose.  Every day, every moment.

When fear comes careening in like a tidal wave.
Be solid in your foundation.
Know what you know and hang on to the ABSOLUTE SECURITY that God WILL DO.

Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]
John 14:27

Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray for everyone whose eyes you have led here.
Father, today we choose to not allow our hearts to be troubled.
We speak to our hearts as Jesus spoke to the storm and we tell it to BE STILL.
Father, now at this moment, we will not allow ourselves to be agitated and disturbed.
We do not permit it!
Father, we receive your strengthening and we will not be intimidated, cowardly or unsettled.
Jesus has left us HIS PEACE and we choose to live every moment in it.
Father, you are faithful to your word. Your promises are yes and amen.
Father, I pray that for what ever situation my darling readers find themselves in, you would give them a promise. Father, lead them to a jewel in your word that they know is right from your heart.
I declare that their hearts are good soil for your word and it will bring an awesome harvest in their lives.
We thank you for all you are doing and all you are going to do.

In Jesus name.
Amen, so be it.

Feel free to comment and share the promises and verses God gives you so we can all be encouraged!

  1. This is the verse, that has been rising to the forefront the past few days.
    What a promise!
    That no matter how far we may look from it, we are destined to become molded into His image.

    “For those whom He foreknew–of whom He was aware and loved beforehand–He also destined from the beginning…to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness].”
    (Romans 8:29)
