Jordan For Jesus #033 "Trust in Jesus (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-11-13 10:18:20
In the Bible, God reminds us not to fear 365 times. F.e.a.r. stands for false evidence appearing real. Fear is really a lie. Do not believe fear! Fear comes from satan to keep people from everything God has called them to be and more. Fear holds a person back from experiencing all that God has for that person and more. Fear is one of satan's greatest weapons! Do not be deceived by it.
True courage is fearing God alone. When a person fears God alone, that person has nothing else to fear because fear does not exist in the presence of the most high God of heaven and earth. When you feel afraid, trust in the Lord and do it afraid. God will be with you, and trusting in Him will give you confidence, in Him, of this.
This is something I am currently learning to do myself. Fear is of the darkness, and it cannot exist in the light of God and the light of the truth of, His word, the Bible. The truth is that we have been made courageous because Jesus Christ, who is true courage, dwells within us.
"Therefore, we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength." (Philippians 4:13) God's word, the Bible, is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. (Psalm 119:105) It is a light that guides us through this dark world. The Bible helps a person to see through the eyes of God.
Fear does not exist in you. Although satan wants to make you believe it is true, it isn't. Trust God with the truth and face your fears. All things are possible with God! (Matthew 19:26) Do not fear but have faith and trust in the Lord for He is faithful.
Slightly Obsessed #204: A Portrait of Faith: An Obedient Heart
Is it really so important to know and obey God's Word if we're already saved? Isn't worrying about obedience just a form of legalism? Don't we live in the age of grace?
Slightly Obsessed #203: God Doesn’t Need Our Thanks
If we were to walk through an open door to heaven as the apostle John did in a vision during his imprisonment on Patmos, we would not find a forlorn father awaiting a phone call from his children, but a royal residence filled with glory.
Slightly Obsessed #202: A Portrait of Faith: Living to Please God
The Scriptures tell us that it is impossible to please God without faith. But how does pleasing God present evidence of our faith to a dying world?
Slightly Obsessed #201: A Portrait of Faith: Thirsty
The Bible assures us that our faith is the evidence of an unseen world and its promises. But faith is not just belief. It is the expression of our belief before God and man.
So then, what does faith look like?
Slightly Obsessed #200: God Sees Your Despair
She was well-dressed, beautiful, and accomplished. She had just flown across the country to teach at a conference and looked fully the part: Sharp. Witty. Color-coordinated. And she nearly left with that image safely in place, until God revealed her despair.
Slightly Obsessed #199: Let No One Take Your Song
If nothing else good should happen to us except salvation, it is enough to fill our every moment with His praise.
