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.
If nothing else good should happen to us except salvation, it is enough to fill our every moment with His praise.

Slightly Obsessed #195: What Is the Apocalypse?
The Long Range Weather Forecast published by The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2017 accurately predicted a bitter winter last year, which dumped so much snow on the country that it inspired the Snowpocalypse festival in Milwaukee, Snowpocalypse survivor badges in Boise, and its own Twitter hashtag #snowmageddon. In keeping with our national compulsion to turn every personal victory or trial into a meme, we can now add -mageddon or -pocalypse to a catastrophe for an over-the-top event to post on our favorite social media outlet.
Slightly Obsessed #194 Heaven Is Calling: More than an Angel
The question is rhetorical, with God assuming the reader will understand that the answer is, “There is no angel whom the Lord has called His Son.” This passage is one meant to address the dilemma posed to the first century Christians, but it is one whom every person must answer in his own heart:
