(11) “Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.
(12) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.”
“Nothing that Satan can do to you should cause you to fear.” (2Tim 1:7).
Jesus chose the twelve disciples the Father had given Him and then jealously guarded them from the evil one. Jesus sent His disciples into the world where they experienced difficult and dangerous circumstances, but He interceded on their behalf with His Father that they would have His strong protection from the evil one ( John 17: 15).
In the same way, Jesus said that we, as His sheep, are held securely in the Father’s strong hand (John 10:28). There is no better place to be than safely in the hand of almighty God.
Do you believe this, or are you fearful of what Satan or people can do to you?
The apostle John encourages us that we do not need to fear: “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4 : 4).
This is not merely a theological concept but a profound reality in which you can have absolute confidence. It is not just a truth for meditation in the security of your home; it is a promise you can cling to in the midst of a hostile and menacing world.
WHAT YOU DO REVEALS WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
If you are living a fearful, anxiety–filled life, you are proving your lack of confidence in God’s protection, regardless of what you may say.
Live your life with confidence that Jesus is continually interceding with the Father on your behalf.
IF YOU TRUST HIM COMPLETELY, YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR.”
Henry T. and Richard Blackaby
Experiencing GOD Day-By-Day
Fear is a very real thing that grips a vast majority of people on this earth.
Why is that statement the truth? I believe it is because so few people in our world today grow up with the knowledge and understanding of who God really is and what His promises for living your life really are.
I caution you to not stay ignorant about God Almighty. He is the Creator of the Universe and everything in and on it.
Contrary to popular opinion (which was formed by the majority of people on earth) Ignorance is NOT Bliss. Ignorance is a state of mental being. You don’t know what you don’t know. Knowledge is the only thing on earth that will overcome ignorance. It is for this reason that an upward mobile person, i.e. an individual who desires to move ahead and accomplish more in life than he or she has accomplished to date, needs to get educated, needs to obtain greater knowledge about life than he or she has acquired up to this point.
Do you see yourself as fitting into this category of needing to advance in your understanding and knowledge of how to live a victorious and successful life? I certainly hope you do.
Every word you speak or action you take initially began as a thought in your own mind. Your thoughts, the one thing that God has given you the complete and uninterrupted control over, predetermine what you wind up doing.
If you desire to change or improve your results or circumstances as exists in your life today, you first need to change the way you think!
Success comes to those people who become Success Conscious.
Failure comes to those folks who indifferently allow themselves to become Failure Conscious.
It is your own mind. You are in total control of your own thoughts. Which one do you choose?….Success or Failure.
Let us get one thing definite. Let’s get one thing straight for sure. God designed and created you to be successful. God does not make any junk! You were designed for greatness. You were engineered for success. You were given the same 3.4 pounds of brains as everyone else was given. NOW IT IS UP TO YOU !
What are you going to do with the equipment you were freely given?
What you do with it and how you use it will determine what you become and the station in life that you occupy.
If you want that to be “the best”, then make certain that grow in the knowledge and understanding of God and His Laws of the Universe. Then use that knowledge and understanding to love and serve your fellow man, bring honor and glory to God Himself, and leave this world a better place than when you entered it.
Remember…..Use your life to Glorify and Magnify Our Holy God and all fear will simply disappear!
Faith and fear cannot co-exist. Faith will always drive fear out and away from your life.
God’s Greatest Blessings to all of you.
