It’s always our choice when we get heartbreaking news of our brothers and sisters in Haiti, in Afghanistan and even friends and loved ones here in the United States to either stand in faith for God’s victory or to agree with the fear the media is pushing along the way. I feel it is my civic duty as a citizen of heaven to remind each of us to not fear.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
This is when I believe more than ever we are tested in His good and written word. Will we agree and believe in what He is saying above or will we crumble to the cry of fear on the streets? I am convinced more than ever that we are moving into times of being tested – “will we be ALL in or lukewarm?”. It may sound harsh and I am not one of those people who get the tickling ear prophetic words. I seem too often get the words that have quite a challenge ahead UNLESS our hearts turn completely to the Lord. There is always an invitation to know Him, to be on His winning team and to experience Christ’s victories in every battle. The question is, are we willing to lean into Him to discover this invitation? It is 100% our choice.
Evil cannot live with holiness. There can be no mixture. I want to encourage you to not allow the evil messaging of the world to infiltrate your mind in any way. Keep your thoughts centered upon the Lord for He is our help in times of trouble. Do not fear. You are loved. You are not alone. All you need “to do” is turn your heart completely to Him. Listen for His loving voice and do as He says. It is always for our best interest and for the best interest of those around us.
Love you, my friends!
