|COPING WITH FEAR!

|OUR GREATEST ENEMY IS FEAR! SUDDENLY SOMETHING HAPPENS AND YOU GET FEARSOME.....WE ALL EXPERIENCE THIS FEELING SOMETIMES...IVE HAD SOME REALLY FEARSOME EXPERIENCES IN MY OWN LIFE WHERE FEAR HAS REALLY TRIED TO GRIP ME, BUT THANK GOD, HE HAS SEEN ME THROUGH EVERY TIME AND IVE LEARNT TO TRUST HIM AND NOT MY OWN UNDERSTANDING - RESTING IN HIM. IN GEN 15 - ABRAHAM ; GOD SAID , FEAR NOT, I AM WHOM I AM!
GOD WILL SEE THAT ALL HE HAS SPOKEN IN TO YOUR LIFE, WILL COME TRUE, REF. GEN 12 . WE FEAR FOR OUR SAFETY - WE FEAR THE GIANTS IN OUR LIFE (STORMY SEAS) BUT WE HAVE GOD S WORD THAT WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT, WE ARE GOING \"TO THE OTHER SIDE\"
GOD WILL GIVE US THE STRENGTH TO BE WHAT HE HAS CALLED US TO BE, TO DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO FOR HIM.
FEAR IS LIKE A POLLUTED RIVER, SEEKING TO DESTROY YOU, THE ENEMY TRIES TO CREATE FEAR, BECAUSE HE KNOWS IT CAN DESTROY YOU, BUT GOD HAS PROMISED TO BE WITH YOU ALWAYS! SO MANY FALL BECAUSE OF FEAR. DEMAND ALL FEAR AWAY! YOU ARE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR THROUGH CHRIST WHO SETS YOU FREE!
WE ALL HAVE A UNIQUE CALLING. GOD HAS GIVEN US HIS POWER WITHIN TO OVERCOME ALL FEAR. I HAVE GOD LIVING IN ME! I HAVE THE ABILITY TO LOVE THROUGH GOD IN ME! DONT FEAR MAN, EVER! IF SOMEONE SAYS YOU CANT DO IT, AND YOU FEEL GOD SAYS \"DO IT\"! YOU STAND UP AND SAY , YES! I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME...LET THE POWER OF GOD CARRY YOU.
BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN, GOD SAW YOU. WHO CAN STAND AGAINST THE POWER OF GOD, HIS AUTHORITY? = NO ONE!!...IN CHRIST, I CAN DO ALL THINGS, ALTHOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL! I KNOW I CAN FALL, BUT EVERY TIME I FALL, HE RAISES ME UP AGAIN! HALLELUYA AND PRAISE THE LORD! NOTHING CAN SEPERATE ME FROM THE LOVE OF GOD! ISNT THAT JUST WONDERFUL!!!
I D RATHER BE AMONGST THE \"NOTHINGS\" IN THIS WORLD THAN TO THINK I AM SOMETHING, CAUSE THEN GOD S POWER CAN WORK THROUGH ME. HE DOES NOT WORK THROUGH PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE SOMETHING!
ITS NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT, SAYS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! READ PSALM 34.
1) I AM NOT WHAT THE NEGATIVE SAYS I AM
2) I AM NOT BOUND BY WHAT MY FEELINGS SAY
3) I AM EVERYTHING GOD SAYS I AM!
DO NOT BE ASHAMED OR FEARFUL, TELL SOMEBODY WHAT CHRIST HAS FOR YOUR LIFE!BE BOLD, STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH - YOUR REWARD IS GREAT!
|great words of boldness

|agree with it all Mary Ann that can inspire and can put fresh courage in any listener. fear is such a trap if we are not wary, its easy to fall into when under great stress and pressure. But to me the opposite is strength! For if we walk in the strength of the Lord very little can touch us to a dangerous degree.
Boldness is also good to have except when it is coupled with foolishness then it becomes a matter of Fools rush in where angels fear to tread!
Thats why I like strength best, because it has the wisdom needed to know the odds, but will still go through all it has to go through. With a calm and trusting spirit. I\'m thankful God is bigger than it all and will be to the end. June R
