Seek Him ( by Fenny West)

Seek Him

Bamboozled By Fear
Afraid of death
Laws are rushed
Draconian laws passed
Freedom killed in cold blood
Democratic values sacrificed
On the altar of CORONA.
Overnight we sleep – walked
Into a totalitarian state
Worse than a communist state.

What we decried we now embrace
Blinded to its horror, inhumanity
Pointing to the invisible enemy
Trying to play the Blame Game.

While we slept, tares were sown
And now we’re confused and roam
Going aimless, like a rudderless ship
Trying this and that, aimless, clueless.

Will we listen to the message?
Will we learn the lessons?
Unless our eyes are opened, I doubt
Unless there’s divine intervention, I doubt.

Man has his fingers in his ears
He is looking but cannot see
He dug a hole and fell into it
He dug a grave and fell into it.

Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Deliverance belongs to the Lord.
Protection belongs to the Lord.
Provision belongs to the Lord.
Divine Direction belongs to the Lord.
Wisdom of the Kingdom is of the Lord.
Insight, foresight and hindsight is of God.
Seek Him, while He may be found.

6      Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.

7      Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

Isa55:6-7

Don’t Be Left Behind ( by Fenny West)

Don’t Be Left Behind

 

Don’t Be Left Behind
Hear the clarion call
The day is far spent
And the night comes
When no man can work.

Don’t be left behind
Hear the Master’s Voice
Sounding an alarm.
Time to make the right choice.
Set before you is life and death
Blessing and cursing
Choose life and live.

Don’t be left behind
Be like the five wise virgins
Ready at His coming.
Be not like the five foolish virgins
Caught unprepared, heady, or not ready.

Don’t be left behind.
As in the Days of Noah
So shall the last day be
It was business as usual
And the ark was closed
And the rains came unabated.
The ark carried away those
Who sought safety in her.
Those who mocked, or delayed
Found it was too late, to their dismay.

Don’t be left behind
As in the Days of Lot
So shall it be in that day.
Many put their fingers in their ears
priding themselves in self-righteousness
Shunning the warning of the Righteous God.
Sodom and Gomorrah went up in flames
And only Lot and his family escaped, just.

Don’t be left behind
The current shaking of the earth
Is enough warning for the wise.
O sleeper, awake! Awake from slumber.
And Christ shall give thee light to see
Come Now into the Ark of our time-Jesus-
The Son of the Living God – our Salvation,
Our Saviour, Sanctification, Righteousness.

1Thess4:16-18, Matt24:37-39, Luke17:26-30, Eph5:14

Gospel CHEERS (1) (Saviour Shall Come) by (Fenny West)

Gospel CHEERS (1) Wipe the Corona tears with some gospel cheers

Saviour Shall Come

21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s. Obadiah1:21

We are blessed to be a blessing, like Abraham (Gen12:2). God knows why we are here at such a time as this when the world is going through such turbulence, uncertainty, fear and desperation. Esther realised she was raised for the time she found herself and rose up to the challenge, stepped up to the plate and saved her nation who were under a threat of annihilation. We are in similar times and even more serious as the whole world is under siege. (Esther 4:14) 

Nehemiah also stood in the gap for his nation and God used him to rebuild the nation in disrepair and despair. ( Neh1-6)

We need to be encouraged and be confident that He has prepared us for these desperate end-times. This is a time for us to shine like never before. It is not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit Who dwells in us. ( Zach 4:6)

In Isaiah 60:1-2, He enjoined us to “Arise, shine!” Because our light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon us. He said there will be gross darkness in the land, but the darker the night, the brighter we will shine.

God wants us to be saviours in our cities, communities, villages and nations especially in these times of fear, depression, death and destruction. We must bring hope amidst seeming hopelessness. Let us remember Abraham who against hope believed in Hope. He interceded for Lot and saved him. (Gen18:22-19:29)

Despite the deadness of Sarah’s womb and his age (99), he refused to stagger in unbelief, but gave glory to God. He must have affirmed, built up and complemented Sarah, “Honey you are looking wonderful, youthful and endearing!”
She may have found it difficult to believe, she still had the hope to conceive at 89, but he kept on building her up until she believed it and became pregnant and gave birth to Isaac. ( Rom4:20-21,Gen21:1-7)
Similarly, we have been called for such a time as this to bring hope amidst hopelessness in our communities, cities and nation. Let’s bring some good news cheer in the midst of the CONVID19 gloom and doom, death and destruction occasioned on innocent lives, livelihood and businesses. Children cannot play as usual, everybody is a suspect, “Does he have it?” Does she have it? “

Nevertheless, we are the light of the world. Let’s let our lights so shine that men see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven. We are the salt of the earth. Let’s spread a flavour and savour of goodness and good news. (Matt5:13-16)

Some are looking for scapegoats and pointing the finger here and there- playing the blame game like Adam and Eve. Let’s not partake in it.

Let’s pray without ceasing for God to have mercy on our land. Let’s be the sanitisers of our time by the power of the Holy Spirit. Let’s be the city on the hill that cannot be hidden. We have a God of Hope. He is not taken by surprise by what is happening and He cares. He will intervene if we intercede. He has willed the earth to us as custodians. We have authority here on earth and whatever we allow on earth will be allowed in heaven. And whatever we disallow or bind on earth will be disallowed or bound in heaven.

( Matt16:18-19)

He will not force Himself on us. This is the Church Age. The Name of Jesus is powerful all the time. Let’s believe it and invoke it and turn the tide of evil, dispel the blanket of fear and halt the decimation and blighting of lives.( Phil2:9-11, Acts3:1-7,Acts4:12, Mark16:17-18)

 It is a spiritual warfare. Let’s put on the whole armour of God (Ephe6:10-18)

We need the Helmet of Salvation for protecting our minds from every negativity, fear and foreboding.

We need Breastplate of Righteousness, being the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, we can stand in the gap like Abraham did, like Nehemiah did, like Daniel did, like Esther did.

We need the Belt of Truth for exposing all the lies of the enemy at this time.

Above all we badly need the shield of faith with which to quench every fiery dart of the enemy. We need to tell people with confidence, knowing Whom we have believed that, “We will pull through together. All hope is not lost despite the bad news everywhere.” We need to counsel people to limit the diet of fear and hopelessness because it weakens their immune system.
With God all things are possible. Let’s have faith in God. Through our God we shall do valiantly. Without faith it is impossible to please God. We walk by faith and not by sight.

We need the shoes of the gospel in this fight. Let’s look for the good things God is doing even at this time and spread it like wild fire. Let’s blow it like a beacon of hope. Let us unashamedly testify of God’s goodness.

Oh how we need to go beyond the defensive weapons and wield the Sword of the Spirit which the Word of God!

This is a time to use the Word- Sword, like never before against the adversary, like Jesus did, “It is written if God be for us who can be against us? It is written, No weapon fashioned against us shall prosper. It is written” When the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him. It is said, “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony, that they loved not their lives unto death. Satan back off! It is written,” The Kingdom of God sufferers violence but the violent take it by force.” We cast you out of our cities, countries. We take back our businesses. We take back our health,  we take back our joy, we take back our streets, we take back our social life in the Name of Jesus. Amen. ( Matt4:4,Rom8:31, Isa54:17, Isa59:19,, Rev12:11, Matt11:12

Living above Fear ( by Fenny West)

Living above Fear

There has never been any time in my life when I have seen nations in the grip of fear as it is today, because of the Corona Virus- CONVID-19.

Many measures have been introduced and even enforced such as travel bans, social distancing, working from home, self-isolation, and advice to those mostly at risk to avoid contact with others for at least 12 weeks.

Because of the crisis of not knowing when it will end, many have resorted to panic buying and some supermarkets’ shelves have been cleared of certain household items like toilet roll, disinfectants, tinned food etc.

Whereas it is wise to take some precautionary measures in view of this pandemic, we need to put things into perspective.  We must not allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by CONVID-19. We must face it with courage and rise above it by helping each other when we can.

I am encouraged by some people who have set up Facebook groups in order to help those in need and vulnerable. There are others trying to find a solution to the virus by developing and testing vaccines. This is the attitude we should all have. We need to ask ourselves what we can do to ameliorate or reduce the situation. Every little helps. We cannot run and hide.

Apart from CONVID-19, there are many situations in life that can evoke fear.

What does the word of God say about fear?

Let us find out and fortify ourselves against the ravages of fear.  Fear can cause you to make mistakes, causes confusion, makes you arrogate to yourself what is not yours at the initial sign of a cough or temperature rise because of what you have heard about the early signs of the disease.

This is a time to hold fast to what God said in His word.

9              Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Josh1:9

10           Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isa41:10

” Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.

2      When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.

Isa43:1-2

Be confident about whom you belong to and Whom you serve.

4      Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5      You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

6      Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.

Israel faced such a crisis as they left Egypt, on their way to the Promised land. Despite being protected from the ten plagues, they forgot the protective power of God in the midst of a crisis. They saw the acts of God but did not know His ways and so they panicked and wanted to eat Moses alive because of fear.

Yet, despite the Red Sea ahead of them and the Egyptian army behind them, God wanted them to go forward.

I believe that is what God wants us to do at this time. Put your trust in God and move forward. Press on for the mark of the prize of the high-calling. Be not afraid neither be you dismayed. Your life is hidden in Christ in God. No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. When the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him. Christ is your life. In Him you live move and have your very being. God is your Refuge and your strength, He is the stronghold of your life.

Say like the psalmist:

1      The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

2      When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.

3      Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.

5      For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

6      And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. Ps27:1-6

12   Through God we will do valiantly, For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.

Ps 60:12

Say to yourself:

1      God is our ( my ) refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.

2      Therefore we ( I )will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3      Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

4      There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.

5      God is in the midst of her, she ( I) shall not be moved; God shall help her ( me), just at the break of dawn.

6      The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

7      The LORD of hosts is with us ( me); The God of Jacob is our  ( my) refuge. Selah

Pray this Psalm and personalise it:

        He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2      I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

3      Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.

4      He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

5      You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

6      Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

7      A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

8      Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.

9      Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

10   No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

11   For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.

12   In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

13   You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14   “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

15   He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

16   With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

Because I dwell in the secret place of the Most High, I abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Therefore no harm will befall me. No disaster will come near my body which is the temple of God.

I say confidently that God is my refuge and my fortress and in Him will I trust.

Surely, He will deliver me from the snare of CONVID-19 or any other virus or perilous pestilence. He covers me with His feathers  and under His wings I find refuge.

His truth is my shield and my buckler.

I will not be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow that flies by day or the destruction that walks in darkness or the plague that parades at mid-day.

A thousand may fall at my right hand, ten thousand at my side, but the evil will not come near me. I am divine territory and belong to the Most High. I have been purchased with a great price. Christ in me is my hope of glory.

I have authority over every disease or virus in the name of Jesus.  No disease shall alight on the temple of the most High, in Jesus’ name. The righteous are as bold as the lion. Therefore I fear no evil. Perfect love cast away all fear. God has not given me a spirit of fear but that of love, power and sound mind.

I refuse to be anxious about anything but in everything , by prayer and petition I have made my request known to God and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding mounts guard over my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus.

God’s word to me is:

‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

16           Tomorrow go down against them.

Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you.”

2 Chro 20:15-16

Say to yourself: my testimony shall be like that of Judah who were surrounded by their enemies and outnumbered many times:  God gave them a prophetic word, Protection and prosperity as shown below:

Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”

21   And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: ” Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.”

22   Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated.

23   For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.

24   So when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one had escaped.

25   When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away their spoil, they found among them an abundance of valuables on the dead bodies, and precious jewelry, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away; and they were three days gathering the spoil because there was so much.

This will be my portion too, in Jesus’ name.

Now I pray that the Lord will open your eyes to see that there are more with you than are against you.

The blood of Jesus speaks for you concerning CORONA or any other challenge.

Daniels’ friends faced a life-threatening decree but they defied it because they trusted in their God. They were thrown into the fiery burning furnace that had been heated seven times hotter than usual. The furnace was so hot that it licked up and killed those who threw them in. However, because Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego trusted in their God, He did not forsake them. The fire set them free to fulfil vision. The challenge gave God the opportunity to send His Son to join them and they were not hurt. In the end, what was designed to kill them brought about the glorification of the name of their God and their promotion. ( Dan3)

The same happened to Daniel later on. His enemies conspire and instigated the King to sign a decree precluding anyone from praying to their God. Daniel was not afraid and continued to pray as usual.  He was thrown into the lion’s den and here again, God protected him and promoted him and His name was glorified. ( Dan6)

So be bold and strong. Put on the whole armour of God, especially in these times of crisis, world-wide.  You are the light of the world and the salt of the earth and apple of God’s eyes. Know that His presence in you makes a difference. Refuse to panic. God is in you and with you and for you. If God is for you, who can be against you?

Say to yourself:

37   Yet in all these things we are  ( I am) more than conquerors through Him who loved us ( me).

38   For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39           nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us ( me) from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our ( my )  Lord.

Fix your eyes on Jesus- the Author and Finisher of your faith. Fear not. Have faith in God. The Just shall live by faith. Cast not away your confidence. We walk by faith and not by sight. See angelic hosts on assignment on your behalf. Tell your body to hear and respond to the Word of God.

Stand Still and see the salvation of the Lord!

Faith: Antidote to Fear( by Fenny West)

Faith: Antidote to Fear

 

Fear is a spirit. It is not of God. That is why it is said that there are 365 “Fear-Nots” in the Word of God- one for each day of the year.

7      For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

(2 Tim 1:7

There will be many opportunities to fear in life in regard to your finances, relationships, health, ministry, career etc etc. But you must realise that God has a good plan for you and does not want you to fear ( Jer 29:11). Fear undermines God’s ability and releases the ability of Satan.  When you fear, you are saying, Satan is more powerful than God. That is why we are told: “Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:23)

Without faith it is impossible to please God. Notice it did not say without prayer it is impossible to please God which means the easiest way to displease God is being afraid.(Heb11:6)

You become afraid when you forget or do not know who you are in Christ, what you have going for you or Whose you are. You need to constantly affirm what Christ has done for you regardless of what you see or feel or hear around you.

However, if you do not know Christ as your Lord and Saviour, your confidence will be shallow and on a shaky ground. You cannot enjoy the confidence and joy of a believer who knows whom he or she serves. If so go to this link and surrender your life to Him and be assured of His covering.

https://inspiration4generations.wordpress.com/2020/03/02/life-is-spiritual-by-fenny-west/

So come with me let us affirm the word of God together.

32   “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. (Acts 20:32)

God’s Word will build you up, encourage you, stabilise you, show you your inheritance in Christ. God’s Word will shine light on your path to know what to do when other are running scared and running helter -skelter. God’s word will cause you to go boldly into the throne of grace to obtain mercy and grace to help in time of need. The entrance of God’s Word brings illumination, direction and solution.(Ps 119 :105,130)

Gideon was hiding from the Midianites because of a period of subjugation they had suffered in their hands. At this point God sent an angel to him to encourage him. Despite his fear and trepidation, God saw him differently. He called him a mighty man of valour. (Judges 6:12  )  You must realise that one with God is majority. If God be for you who can be against you? (Rom 8:31)In Christ you are more than a conqueror ( Rom 8:37). Therefor neither death nor life nor angels , nor principalities nor powers nor height nor depth is able to separate you from the love of Christ. ( Rom8:39)

So let the sea roar and be carried into the midst of the sea. Let there be a tumult and a cacophony, agitation a roar from the elements, keep your eyes on Jesus. Maintain your confession of who you are what you have and Whose you are.(Ps46)

Whatever the adversity is, remind yourself that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. Affirm your faith always, no matter what.  ( 1 John 4:4)

4      For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. (1 John 5:4)

Use these scripture and personalise them in prayer:

“God is my refuse and my fortress, my ever-present help in trouble. Though the mountains be moved and carried into the midst of the seas, I shall not be moved. I know whom I serve and whom I have believed. Though there be a conflagration, quaking, tumult, great noise, I will be still and know that the Lord He is God.

“He will make my wars to cease and burn the chariots of my enemies in His fire. His Word for me today is : ‘Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted amongst your adversaries and adversities.’ (Ps46)

“God is working everything together for my good.

“My light affliction, which is just for the moment, is working for me, a far more exceeding weight of eternal glory. Therefore, I will not focus on the things which are seen but the things which are unseen, knowing that the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are unseen are eternal.” (2 Cor 4:16-17)

Declare: “He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Because I dwell in the secret place of the Most High, I abide under that shadow of the almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”

“Surely, He will save me from the fowler’s snare and the deadly pestilence. His faithfulness will be my shield and my buckler. I will not be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow that flies by day or the destruction that wastes a noonday. A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right, but the evil will not come near my dwelling.”Ps91

Affirm that God has given you His angels to protect you in all your ways:

 “Thank you , Father that you said you have given me your angles as ministering spirits for those who are heirs of salvation ( Heb 1:14). The angel of the Lord encamp around those who fear Him (Ps 34 :7). He shall give His angels charge over you to keep you in all of your ways, they will lift you up so that you do not dash your feet against a stone (Ps 91:11).  Thank you, Lord, for the protection from your angels.

Remind yourself how He used angels to rescue Peter from the prison (Acts 12:5-11) Remind yourself how He used angles to rescue the believers who were imprisoned and told them to go and preach.

( Acts 5:17-25 )

Remind yourself how he opened the eyes of Elisha’s servant to see the multitude of angels and chariots of fire surrounding them amidst the threat of their enemies. (2 Ki 6 :14-17) 

Remind yourself how He rescued the Israelites, who were sandwiched between the Red Sea and their enemies, in hot pursuit. He remains the same. This is the God you serve.

14   Therefore he sent horses and chariots and a great army there, and they came by night and surrounded the city.

15   And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”

16   So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

17   And Elisha prayed, and said, “LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

2 Kings 6:14-17

David said, yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For thou art with me and thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. You prepare a table for me, in the presence of my enemies… This is what you should expect in the midst of trouble and calamity…Ps23:4

Express confidence in the God you serve. Say what God said about you and about Himself:

For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

6              So we may boldly say: ” The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”Heb 13:5-6

Do not focus on the adverse circumstances. Focus on the power of God to save and deliver and preserve.

Have a Godly perspective like Paul. Despite the testimonies of the Holy Spirit about what he would suffer if he went to Jerusalem to preach, Paul was undaunted, unmoved, desiring to finish the work God gave him to do rather than shrink in fear.

22 And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there,
23 except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.
24 But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Thank God for His protection, provision and presence, no matter what you see or what people say. Know that you are not ordinary. You are the apple of God’s eyes.

9      But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

10   who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

1Pet2:9-10

” Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.

2      When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. Isa43:1-2

“Have faith in God. Mark 11:23

9      Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Josh 1:9

Psalms 27: An Exuberant Declaration of Faith A Psalm  of David.

1      The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

2      When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.

3              Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.

5      For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

6      And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.

See God as your light and your salvation. And see the circumstances that have risen against you, stumbling and falling before you.

See yourself hiding away high upon a rock where your enemies cannot find you or harm you.

Declare your victory before you see it. In fact see your victory in the spirit realm. Say to yourself:” Thanks be to God who always gives me perpetual victories. I am strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. I am strengthened with might in my inner being. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises against me in judgement I condemn. When the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him. I am far from oppression, or contamination or suppression or subjugation or dominion. The Greater One indwells me and puts me over. I have great faith in the keeping power of my God. Christ in me, my hope of glory. ( Col 1:27, 1 John 4:4)

13   And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.

14   The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”

15   And the LORD said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.

16   But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. Ex 14:13-16

Notice, God told the Israelites to go forward despite the Red Sea before them and He told Moses to stretch forth the rod in his hands over the sea. What does that tell us? Regardless of what may have confronted you, there is something you have in you that you can use to counteract it and part the Red Sea for you to walk on dry ground. If you are not sure what it is, then ask your Maker and He will show you by His Spirit.

Go forward! Fear not.
