Blessings to all of the readers and the doers of the word! I wish you peace in advance, I wish you comfort, I wish you rest in the name of the Lord!
Some people are experiencing this, just came out of it or will face it but rest assured the Lord is your Shepherd and you shall not want! Greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world!
I believe that many people are being repositioned just so they can lean on God. I believe that in order to lean on God we have to choose Faith! Sometimes we all need a boost in the faith Department-a few minutes ago I asked my buddy "YONDYN" to keep me in prayer. All and all it was pertaining to a LACK OF FAITH
Had it not been for the Lord where would I be. I'm in awe right now. Only God himself would lead me to read such a TIMELY MESSAGE and post it to share with my SPARKIES.
Look no matter what your circumstances are CHOOSE FAITH. Because without it-it's impossible to please God and faith w/o works is dead.
Stand and walk on the word of God. Go bodly to the throne and seek God's perfect will for your life in every aspect of your life!
"This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go"
(Joshua 1:9, NLT))
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Did you know that fear works just like faith but in the opposite direction? In the same way that faith opens the door for God to work in our lives; fear opens the door for the enemy to work in our lives.
The Bible says that fear has torment. Fear has no mercy. If you act on fear instead of acting on faith, it will keep you depressed, miserable and lonely. And so many people today are missing out on God's joy, peace, and victory because they keep giving in to fear. They feed fear by what they watch on TV or read in the news or on the internet. Don't let that be you! Romans tells us that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. The more you fill your heart and mind with God's Word, the stronger your faith will be so you can stand against the powers of darkness. Choose faith instead of fear by choosing God's Word.
Remember, the power that is in you is greater than the power of fear. When thoughts come that say, "You're not able", choose faith by saying, "I can do all things through Christ!" Choose faith today so you can overcome fear and live in the freedom God has in store for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
" Heavenly Father, I receive Your Word today which is life, health, and strength to me. I choose to close the door on fear by guarding what I say, what I listen to, and what I dwell on. Fill me with Your love and faith, and I meditate on Your Word. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
