Fear Not




This is a meaningful email I had saved and thought it would be good to share on my blog.


AND THE LORD, HE IS THE ONE WHO GOES BEFORE
YOU. HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU;
DO NOT FEAR NOR BE DISMAYED.
( DEUTERONOMY 31:8 *NKJV )

There are times when we are fearful of current events or
even the future. For fear is a tool that satan uses to attack
our faith in our Heavenly Father. After all fear causes worry,
and what is fear anyway, but the opposite of faith!

Now it is important for a Child of God to remember that;
GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF
POWER AND OF LOVE AND OF A SOUND MIND.
( 2 TIMOTHY 1:7 ) And God has made us this promise;
FOR I, THE LORD YOUR GOD, WILL HOLD YOUR RIGHT
HAND, SAYING TO YOU, "FEAR NOT, I WILL HELP YOU."
( ISAIAH 41:13 )

So the next time that fear strikes you remember to
hold fast to your faith! After all you can always; CAST ALL
YOUR BURDEN ON THE LORD, AND HE SHALL SUSTAIN
YOU; HE SHALL NEVER PERMIT THE RIGHTEOUS TO BE
MOVED. ( PSALM 55:22 )

FINALLY, BRETHREN, FAREWELL. BECOME
COMPLETE. BE OF GOOD COMFORT, BE OF ONE MIND,
LIVE IN PEACE; AND THE GOD OF LOVE AND PEACE
WILL BE WITH YOU. ( 2 CORINTHIANS 13:11 )

Therefore have a great day today, filled with
peace, and remember that "worry is the darkroom in which
negatives are developed." Amen.

Sing Frances J. Crosby's wonderful hymn "Pass Me Not" here.

Oh Cathy this was so wonderful! My dad is to find out about his test on Friday and I have been fighting fear like crazy!

The song, Pass Me Not, is on the latest CD that my daughter's group made. It is sung in acapella and is just beautiful!

Cathy said...

Dear Sharon, I'm glad His Word spoke to you. We pray for a good report, in Jesus name. I'm also praying for your mother, you and the family. I have a dear friend who is really being attacked with fear. Hugs to you, dear.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING "FEAR NOT"
My favorite Scripture is,

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love,
and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy !:7

Fear robs people of so much, and Jesus said over and over "Fear Not!"
