No Fear But Faith
Matthew 14:26-27 (KJV) And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
How many of you can remember from childhood weebles wobbling but not falling down? Weebles were a childhood toy likely not easily located in this world today. They were egg-shaped little people ... Continue Reading →

The Lord Could “Smell” Fear
Acts 18:9-10 (KJB) Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: 10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
How many times are we afraid to reach out to hearts with the gospel message, just like here was the Apostle Paul. We look individually and collectively to what God has ... Continue Reading →

They Were All Afraid
Acts 9:26 (KJB) And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
This verse points to the fear and anxiety at work inside the hearts and minds of these professing men of God. These disciples were taken aback by Paul daring to join in with them as a disciple. They were not hospitable or approachable ... Continue Reading →

Faith is the Opposite of Doubt
Matthew 21:21 (KJB) Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

Fear God Not Man
Psalm 56:11 (KJB) In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
It is sad thing that there are many fearful professing Christians woefully working in this world. Their mouth readily professes a personal relationship with God, however, they harbor fear and trepidation about what mankind and this world can do to them.
“They ask, but what if ….”
Rather than remaining trustful inside the supernatural power and presence ... Continue Reading →

Moved by Godly Fear
Hebrews 11:7 (KJB) By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
The presence of fear either paralyzed or promotes action. There is a godly palpable reaction that brings God honor and glory and there is an ungodly reaction that opposes God, thereby ... Continue Reading →

Do Not Fear Tomorrow
Matthew 6:34 (KJB) Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
God has divinely allowed you to be alive on this earth for another day. Do not use this day, called today to fear about what may happen tomorrow. It is a sad fact that many people waste what time God has divinely given them today worrying about ... Continue Reading →

Faith and Fear Go Hand in Hand
Hebrews 11:1 (KJB) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith calls for you to place your trust in something that you cannot see but, none the less, you believe is real or spiritually substantial. A man can choose to place faith or fear into something that he cannot see but believes it is or will be real or tangible at some point in time.
Both ... Continue Reading →

You Can Count on Him!
Deuteronomy 31:6 (KJB) 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.
These comforting words of God to dispel fear and promote faith in God as recorded in the Old Testament Law in the book of Deuteronomy are eternally comforting for the child of God. Spoken in ancient biblical ... Continue Reading →

Fear Can Paralyze or Perfect
John 7:13 (KJB) Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
Fear founded in things of this world can be a spiritually paralyzing thing.
Fear can stop a man “dead in his tracks” both physically and spiritually.
This verse alludes to a time in ancient history when man feared the Jewish people as well as the nation of Israel. Perhaps some men harbor no fear of the Jewish people today but do not ... Continue Reading →
