OVERCOMING FEAR

Today, when asking the LORD what to write,  the subject of “fear” came up.  Fear, you know, when you read something or hear something or see something that makes your stomach turn over and you start to shake all over, and that hot feeling comes all over you…yes, THAT fear.  We’ve all been there, and it isn’t a nice feeling, and God doesn’t want us to experience it ever again.

DO NOT WORRY

We are told by the Lord Jesus not to have worry or anxiety about things. Yeah, I know, it’s easy to say, but hard to do, right? Well, it doesn’t HAVE to be. I think of it like this; if God be for me, who can be against me? And if God be FOR me, WHO CARES who’s against me? So why worry, when God has me covered? And that would be a good attitude for YOU to have, as well. It is written in Matthew 6:24-34,

WHEN YOU THINK OF ME

As I was returning home today, I asked the LORD what I am to write about in my newsletter. He quickly answered, “When you think of Me”. That almost strikes me as a question, as in, “When I think of the LORD, what are my thoughts?”

CONSIDER HIM

Today I’d like to start with an encouraging scripture, found in Hebrews 12:1-3,
1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Continue Reading »

WHY ARE YOU WORRIED?

There is a magazine which has a cartoon character on the cover, whose motto is, “WHAT-ME WORRY?” Maybe you remember it.  I remember reading that when I was a little boy, but somehow, growing up changed all that.  My Mom was a world-champion worrier, and though I said I’d never end up like that, guess what?  I did.  Guess it runs in the family.  In fact, it runs in a LOT of families.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to go back to those worry-free days of childhood again?  Well, we can’t go back to childhood, but we CAN be worry-free.  Yes, you read that right, WORRY-FREE!

BRINGING EVERY THOUGHT IN LINE WITH THE WORD OF GOD

Each week I receive many questions about how to overcome this or that situation going on in people’s lives.  There is a simple “One size fits all” answer.  We must CONTINUALLY bring our every thought in line with the Word of God. Continue Reading »

HOW CAN I TELL IF I REALLY BELIEVE?

“How can I tell if I really believe?” That’s a question I hear often, and the answer is really simple: if you have to ask, then most likely you don’t.  Believing is being fully persuaded, and that’s in spite of the circumstances you may be facing.  Keep in mind, just because you believe God’s word and His promises does not exempt you from difficult circumstances.  No, we are ALL tested.  And there’s a reason for that.

THE COST OF FEAR

There are two types of fear I’d like to talk about today.  There is “the fear of the LORD”, and there is every other kind of fear which has nothing to do with the LORD.  The Bible says “the fear of the LORD” leads to wisdom. That means any other type of fear is not productive for us. Here are just a few scriptures from Proverbs about “the fear of the LORD”. Continue Reading »

THE PRICE OF ANXIETY

Worry and anxiety are subjects that I have over 40 years of experience with, so that makes me an expert of sorts, doesn’t it?  However, admittedly my experience is somewhat out of date, because when I came to the LORD in 1993, He invited me to cast my cares upon Him, so I did.  Simple, huh?  Don’t you wish everything was this easy?
