Faith to Release Fear

Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.  We love him, because he first loved us.
~ 1 John 4:18-19 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. Thank God, we’re blessed to see another day.

Today’s encouraging thought is faith to release fear.

Fear is not spiritual. Fear does not come from God. Fear torments the mind and thoughts.

Psalm 23 is the best defense to speak and release fear.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
~ Proverbs 9:10 ~

Releasing fear builds trust, in The Lord, as his Word is true.

Releasing fear gives glory to God.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith.  Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Loved


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
~ Psalm 23 ~


It’s a beautiful thing to realize just how precious and loved we truly are.

What a blessings!

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Faith To Sleep Well Tonight

Sometimes, all you have to do is relax and remind yourself that you’re doing all that you can and that everything is going to turn out alright.

Psalm 23, The Lord Is My Shepherd

Dear God Prayer and Unconditional Love

There is power in prayer! We must keep praying and walking, by faith, through the changes and or challenges to get us to unconditional love. God is with us every step of the way! God will never leave us nor forsake us!

20130520-195630.jpg

God never gives us more than we can bear! This too shall pass! Let us pray without ceasing! We can continue to meditate and pray Psalm 23 and 1 Corinthians 13! Just know that God remains in charge!

Let us keep praying as God continues pruning and plucking to produce more fruit of the spirit in us–love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith meekness and temperance! God gives us mercy and grace when we stumble!

To love unconditionally, like Jesus, requires knowing the Word of God, being led by The Holy Spirit and lots of the fruit of the spirit!

1 Corinthians 13:3-13 (NKJV) – 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Meditate On The Lord Is My Shepherd

God is and always will be in charge. God is our protector and provider. Keep the faith and meditate on Psalm 23 today as we keep moving forward.
