With all that’s happening in the world today, there is much fear. I even see those who confess to be believers in Messiah Yeshua and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, also captured by fear.
Yeshua said to His disciples, “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me (John 14:1)….Peace (shalom) I leave with you; my peace (shalom) I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid (John 14:27)…..
If are struggling with this fear or feeling very troubled. Please accept what has been given….Shalom!
Also remember these words from the Scriptures:
- ….for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2Timothy 1:7
- Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
- There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18
And way back in the beginning, just before entering the land, YHVH commanded Joshua (Yeshua in Hebrew…Jesus in English),
” Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them.
Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:6-9
DO NOT FEAR! Have faith in Him that lives in You and smash the works of HaSatan (The Satan, The Adversary).
Know you walk in the Messiah’s authority when you believe and love Him and the Father in obedience, submission and humility. Go out and be a light to the world!
Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Messiah or Christ) said:
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5;14-16
