Day 25/ 365 - Fear Not - Receiving Peace

Day 25
Judges 6:23
And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die.

So much of the not fear  (ing)
 
is
 
the receive (ing) of peace
 
if you hold  fear
 
 
with both hands

 
 
you have no ability to hold  that peace
 
with both hands

 
 
 
Which one will you choose?
 
 
For ultimately it is your choice.
 
 
 
AMEN

Day 24 - Fear Not - Obey in the Land of the Enemy

Day 24
Judges 6:10
And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.

You might be in the enemies territory, but God told you to go there.  Right in the midst of what they worship - their gods.


Don't ya love it...

when God says wade on in

Keep your head above water.

Keep your eye on the prize of your great calling?

Every great calling will call you to dwell in the land of the enemies and their gods.

 

For it is there that the battle dwells. 

Warriors don't hide or ignore the battle that is raging.



You don't believe me, read your Bible.

It's true and we need to do better.  Be braver.  Not be discouraged.



 You have to dwell among the gods to bring the great I AM.

FEAR NOT

AMEN

Day 22 - Fear Not - Save our Nation

DAY 22
Joshua 10:8
And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.

Maybe it's because Joshua was doing important stuff.

Like saving a nation
 


Most of us are just saving a family
 


Oh, ya - very important.

So again the LORD tells Joshua just as he told Moses, the enemies had been delivered into his hand



AND

not a man of his enemies shall stand before him.
 
So why do we always envision them looming before us
 
 

Why do we always fear their faces
 

fear their words
 

fear their rejection
 

Fear their scorn

 


Oh,  Body of Christ -
 let's join together, encourage each other to FEAR NOT and save our families
and by doing that

 
save our NATION

 
AMEN

Day 21/ 365 Fear Not - Arise

DAY 21
Joshua 8:1
And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise,

The more I meditate on the 365 Fear Nots in the Bible, the more I believe fear attacks us because of many reasons - one is that
we are not unified as the Body of Christ


 

What if all the busyness - I am so busy.  I didn't see your call.  What's up?
 



What if all the worldliness - I have to have that - you know, that shoe where you pay to have the bottom a certain color although it doesn't make it worth more and you know you are buying it just so you can appear to have so much money you can buy these shoes - yep, these!  but we all  know!


 
What if all the jealousy - She has such an awesome life, husband, children, car, everything!



What if all the social media - Did you see that picture of Sally and her family in Hawaii?



is doing only one thing 
 
keeping us apart
 
keeping us from supporting each other
 
keeping us from encouraging each other
 
keeping us from pushing each other toward our destinies

What if the big plan of the enemy is to keep us apart and to keep us ineffective?

Maybe that is why we don't feel welcome in church

Maybe that is why social media presents such one sided pictures of other peoples' lives

Maybe that is why we feel that certain whatever with the right name on it will satisfy us

What if we are focusing on the wrong things?

 not supporting each other,

 not pushing others past their fears,
and thus not building the Kingdom in our city, country, world?

Can you imagine how different your battle would be if you could
take all the people of war with thee, and arise?


 
Encourage someone today to FEAR NOT
 
Arise and go with them through the battle.
Hold up their hands
Ye people of the battle

 
AMEN

Day 19 / 365 Fear Not

DAY 19
2 Kings 6: 16
And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
 
THEM - AGAIN, today?
 
I know we have the angels and the multitude


 
BUT

What if they that be with us were the Body of Christ
 
 
Telling each other to
 
 
 
Telling each other
 
 
 
Telling each other
 
 
 
Our fears would dissipate.  Don't ya think?
 
Just imagine it
 

FEAR NOT my friend I am with you, and we are more than they that be against you.
 
 
 
Find at least one person today that you can send this to and say - Fear not, I am with you and we together are more than enough.
 

 
 
AMEN

Day 18/ 365 Fear Not \- THEM

DAY 18
Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Yep
that's the big one

THEM

They literally scare the pants off of  us.
Well, actually everything.

 

BECAUSE

We literally forget.

he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.



Where he leads you, he will not forsake you.

 

AMEN
