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

May 19, 2020

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!

January 3, 2020

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.

Fear and Greed!

August 31, 2019

I remember when hurricanes were fun. No one panicked. No one hoarded. We got our surfboards out ready to hit the beach. If the power went out it was exciting because we got to light candles throughout the house and eat ice cream for breakfast. If you were lucky, you got school off for a day. What happened? I went to the store yesterday to grab some dog treats and dinner and it was like the apocalypse. The parking lot was a derby. No shopping carts. There was dry dogfood spilled in the aisles like there was a fight over the last bag of Fido’s fave brand or something. 😂

I got my stuff and got outta there. Now I need to go to the store today because we ran out of coffee creamer.😭 Please pray for us here in Florida. Because of the people. They are what I’m most frightened of. 😰😉

Sent by a friend on Facebook. So true. What happened? Fear and greed. Both are against what the Bible teaches.

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.

Proverbs 21:26 He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.

Gabriel, Angel Sent From God

December 16, 2017

Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

Only two angels are mentioned by name in the New Testament. Gabriel and Michael. Gabriel was an archangel who was a messenger sent by God to deliver news to Zacariah and then later to Mary. Gabriel is also mentioned in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Angels had an important role in the birth of the Lord Jesus. Their presence brought fear into the hearts of the people they appeared to according to scripture.

We tend to forget that people like Zacariah, Mary and Joseph were just ordinary people that God used in extraordinary circumstances. If Gabriel appeared to us today we too would be afraid. As Christians we can look forward to the time when we will see angels in Heaven. What a wonderful future we have and there will be no fear, only wonder and beauty as we behold Heaven and meet Jesus face to face.

Friday the 13th

October 13, 2017

Blessed or bewitched? Some people are superstitious and believe that if the 13th day falls on Friday it is “unlucky”. This fear dates back to hundreds of years before Christ. The Bible tells us that everyday is blessed by God and we as Christians must trust Him. So today, Friday the 13th, praise the Lord for His goodness and blessings that He has given you. Go out today looking for something good to happen to you.

Psalms 145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Our Pilot

May 18, 2017

Some people have fears. Snakes, the dark, bridges and many more. Flying can be very frightening to some people. Recently while on a flight the plane went through severe tubulence. Lightning, rain, bumpy air pockets. The plane actually dropped several feet which had many passengers crying and a few actually screamed. Then the pilot took the plane above the clouds where the sun was shinning and looking out the window the clouds looked white, fluffy and beautiful. The plane landed safety. It reminds me of our Pilot in life, the Lord Jesus Christ. He takes us through the storms of life and brings us the beautiful blessings in spite of the storm. We have nothing to fear if we put our trust in Him.

Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Storms of Life

April 6, 2017

Thunder and lightning caused many people to wake from a sound sleep today. Children, pets and even some adults woke up with fear. There are many things in our storms of life, sickness, death, divorce and other things that cause fear. Just like the storm passed today so there are things we can do to help us get past the storms in our life. Renew you faith in God. Remember the past and the things He already has carried you through. Read your Bible everyday and maybe several times a day. And pray. This storm will pass. God will carry you through. Joy comes in the morning.

Psalms 30:5 ……weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Do You Feel Safe?

January 7, 2017

Do you feel safe? Everyday there is some news of tragedy. Yesterday, in Florida there was a shooting in the Ft. Lauderdale airport when travelers went to pick up their luggage from a flight they were on. Five deaths and many injuries. Traffic accidents, drive by shootings, robberies and many more dangers are heard about everyday.

Should we as Christians allow fear to rule our lives. NO!! The Bible tells us in both the Old and New Testament to “fear not” over 100 times. God wants us to put our trust in Him. Do bad things happen to good people? Absolutely, but God promises to bring us through all circumstances. Safety is of the Lord.

Psalms 118:6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

Psalms 4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
