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 #224: When the Pressure Feels Too Great
The fig I found in a local big box store had already been trimmed into a lovely miniature tree with an unusual trunk. Little did I understand what it takes to train a plant into a bonsai, and what that process would teach me about God.
Slightly Obsessed #223: Right Clothes, Wrong Spirit
Satan seeks to deceive us, divide us, and destroy us. His bag of tricks and sleight of hand are impressive but imaginary trapdoors to disillusionment. He constantly roams the earth in an insatiable search for humans to devour.
Slightly Obsessed #222: The Rain
Like the grass, the human heart has shallow roots and fades quickly in the dry season. But those shallow roots also are the first to taste the rain.
Slightly Obsessed #221: Are You Green and Sappy?
Being described as either green or sappy is not usually considered to be a compliment. But Irma lay claim to both, and it was her secret to a bountiful life.
Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness at His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
Slightly Obsessed #219: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 3
Job's soul had been stripped completely down to the dirt. His friends accused him; he defended himself vigorously. Lost in the cacophony was the voice of God. No one seemed to notice.
Except for one.
