Drive Out Feat

fear 1

2 Timothy 1:7~ For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Fear is a spirit that comes to rob you of the power God has given you through the gift of the Holy Spirit. The power to face each day free from chains and shackles, the power to stand against every opposition that is thrown towards you. Fear comes to push out the spirit of love that rest on the inside of you and reassures you that God is for you and he is greater than the whole world against you. Fear comes to create confusion in your sound mind and drive you to think thoughts of confusion.

Don’t let fear chase away your dreams, stop you from pursuing, or make you become a slave to this wicked and sinful flesh. Walk in the knowledge of God and declare that fear can’t live here any more. When people say you can’t, say God said I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. When you face opposition, say when the enemy surrounds me like a flood, God is lifting a standard. You stand in the power of the Holy Spirit and allow love to lift you up and above any situation while God keeps your mind in perfect peace.

Be Blessed

Learn To Be Content and Thank God For Today

 

“for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:11b-13 (KJV)

 

There once was a woman who awoke at 5:00am and made her a cup of coffee. Like usual for the past 15 years, she sat to have her daily devotional and prayer. Her alarm as typical rang out at 6:30, but this day was far from ordinary. She had no husband to kiss good morning, kids to awake, or lunch to pack. See this woman on a Monday afternoon received a call that changed the course of her life for the rest of her life. She buried two beautiful girls and the love of her life. She had cried until there were no more tears to cry.

But today was different as she finally pulled herself up out of bed and began her daily routine. She purposed in her mind she would surrender her pain and push through the day with a hope she held on to for dear life. Her hope rested on eternal life and seeing her loved ones once again some day.

She prayed this prayer while she lifted her hands, breathing deeply within, and with a sincere heart said “ God I can’t erase the events of yesterday, or heal this deep pain within, but Lord I choose on today to see the gifts of today and to let you do the rest. God I just thank you for today.”

Paul was commanded with the many difficulties he faced to be content in whatever state he met, and he was dealt many of hard times. In spite of it all Paul like this woman learned the secret to pressing on and seeing the gifts of the day.

Will you let the commandment Paul was given rest in your heart today? 

We are commissioned to lead souls to Christ and as we live our lives rested in the hope of eternal life. We hope to see the souls we have reached and the family and friends who were called home before us once again. No one said it would be easy but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
