“In God I trust, I shall not fear”
Like David, we all struggle with fear and if we hold on to it, we naturally turn our hearts away from God. The remedy to fear is praying this Proverbs 56 verse.
Are you not asking yourself, what’s happening to my country, to church, personal relationships or the rest of the world, as I do?
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” —John 16:33
My recent tribulation is serving me well. One night I cried out, “God, what is wrong with me?” The next morning, the Lord gave me this saying, “I do believe, help my unbelief.” So, I found the verse in Mark 9:24. It’s the story of a father and his evil possessed son asking Jesus to heal him, with the father adding, “if you can,” which shows doubt. Jesus asking, “What do you mean, if I can?” and Jesus stated anything is possible if the father has faith.
What the good Lord showed me through this narrative is that my faith is far from perfect; I do have faith! Please help me to have more faith! That is what the father said to Jesus, and that please Him and he healed the man’s son.
That night before falling asleep, the Lord said to me, “I must heal your broken heart before I can heal your infirmities.” I knew what He meant and surrendered it all. The next two nights I had encouraging dreams about my family member. On the fourth day, I began to experience an inner healing all over my body – Praise God! He forced me off the bullet train, sat me on a cart without a horse to mending my broken heart, healing my body to feeling reborn – with one major change. I know now how to rebuke fear and activate the power of God in me to command fear out of my life.
God, help us all to live pleasing to You.
