One of my favorite scriptures & a piece of a devotion I received this morning. Fear not is the message of this season – God is speaking!
Isaiah 41:10 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.
“I am the God of the possible & this is your season to go forth and do exploits in My name. Expect My name to be the strong tower that you run into when you are intimidated and tired and weak in spirit. Receive strength and supply from My word and go out against the giants in your land knowing that My right hand is your sure resource to fell every foe. Do not rely on the lying vanities of those who only seek to make merchandise of you. Set aside the distractions and put your trust wholly and completely upon Me. This is your now season and you will not be disappointed in that which I am accomplishing in your behalf.”
I lived in fear for many, many years. I still struggle with it sometimes but it no longer has the grip it had on me for so long. God gets the glory for that, trust me. I was a slave to it.
I look back & see many times what’s snarling & hissing & spitting in our face is a mirage, masquerading as the end-all that will be-all.
Trust Him, Lean on Him, & Believe.
Much love, keeping the faith & holding that damnable fear at bay y’all ~ for we are more than over-comers,
