Fear Robs Us Of God’s Blessings

August 27, 2021

Psalms 34:4 – I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

2 Timothy 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Trust in God!

August 8, 2021

Many people, even Christians, are fearful. Illness, natural disasters, family problems and finances are all things that cause us to fear.

But God is real. He tells us to fear not. It is a matter of faith and trust. Faith comes by hearing and hearing is the Word of God.

We need to read the Bible everyday and meditate on what God tells us. Pray and tell Jesus our fears and concerns. Find fellowship with other believers. Listen to Pastors and teachers who present the truth.

Fear and confusion are not from God. Confess our fear to Him and He will bring peace.

Where’s Your Focus?

It is so easy to get distracted by things that are beyond our control. If our attention is on the news, we can become fearful.

Everywhere we look there is something that can cause us to take our eyes off Jesus and live in fear and uncertainty, but we have promises in God’s Word that He is with us, He has everything in control and He is with us through any situation.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

Superstitious? The Bible tells us to have faith in God..not fear of myths and superstition.

If you are burdened by false superstition ask Jesus to take it away and trust fully in Him.

Fear

June 10, 2020

As places like restaurants, department stores and other businesses begin to open and people start going out again, there is still a lot of fear and uncertainty in many people.

As Christians we need to take reasonable precautions, however, we do not need to be overwhelmed by fear and frustration. God promises to protect His children. Let us put our trust in Jesus, our Savior and give Him all of our fear no matter what the circumstances.

Fear Not

When out and about in this time of the coronavirus, there is still much fear. We do need to be careful and not do something that would put us in danger, however, to be overcome by fear is not trusting God. He wants us as Christians to look to Him for protection.

A Great Promise For Fearful Times

Have No Fear!

Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Mary, Mother of Jesus

December 16, 2019

Mary, a young virgin, was engaged to Joseph. God chose her to be the mother of the Lord Jesus. When Gabriel came to her she was frightened at first, listened to his message and then was humble and honored. In those days being pregnant without marriage was a great disgrace but Mary was willing to obey.When the angel told her of Elisabeth’s pregnancy, Mary, went to stay with her. Elisabeth confirmed what the angel had told her because the baby leaped in her womb.

If you have not read and thought about the people in the unfolding Christmas story it would be good to read it again. We learn much about obedience and love of God as we realize that every person was human and had the same emotions, fears, joys and problems we do. Mary is a great example to us and she surely was blessed among women.

Luke 1:30-31 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary:for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
