As I sat down with God this morning and confessed all my fears, I felt God whisper Do Not Fear. His directions is so simple. Fear is feeding into the enemy. And although, our feelings can be very real and justified, God does not want us to live in them. He does not want our feelings to have any power over our life. I believe He wants us to bring each one of our fears to His feet and LAY them down. LAY THEM DOWN FOR GOOD. ((For some of us, laying them down for good, means daily.))
I want to encourage you to find some quiet time with God and really pour out your heart. Tell him all your fears and anxiety, do not hold back, and then read this word from God’s heart to you.
Do Not Fear! I am watching you worry and it breaks my heart. I am right here, holding your hand. Please take your eyes off your natural circumstances and focus them on to me. My perfect, unconditional love will cast out your fear. (1John 4:18) Trust in me with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding! (Prov 3:5) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways. My ways are higher than your ways! (Isaiah 55:8) I will work in all things for the Good of those who love me. (Romans 8:28) Girl, I know the plans I have for you! My plans are to prosper you and not harm you. Did you hear me? NOT HARM you! Let me repeat that, my plans are not to harm you! I have plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) My purpose and path for your life is Good!
Cast all your anxieties on me, because I care for you! Be alert and of sober mind! Resist the enemy and stand firm in your faith! (1 Peter 8-9) When your soul is weary, strengthen it according to my word! (Psalm 119:28) I give strength to the weary and increases power of the weak! (Isa 40:29) My grace is enough for you right now! (2 Corinthians 2:12)
Come to me daughter. All I want is for you to come to me. Come to me, you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and you will find rest in your soul! For my way is easy and my burden is light! (Matt 11:30) Do NOT fear. For I am with you! For I am YOUR God! I will strengthen you and help you! I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isa 41:10)
Do you hear my words! Are you listening? I have you, I got you, this is already figured out! I am your strong tower, I will keep you safe. (Proverbs 18:10)
