Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” ~ John 14:27
Life – have peace with it. Stop worrying about things. GOD is able! These are things I have learned over the years… in many cases, the hard way.
I have learned also over the years that when your mind is made up, it will diminish your fears. Satan strives to steal your mind through trickery. But, don’t be fooled by the enemy… or defeated by your natural mind. Instead, you have to face life each day with “Interior motives.” That is… you must walk by faith…and not by what you see.
Each day, you should:
- Read GOD’s Word
- Whisper a prayer throughout the day
- Think on GOD’s goodness
- Worship GOD in your heart
- Have Faith
- Believe GOD
There are always two voices whispering in your ear: the voice of fear, and the voice of confidence. Fear brings many obstacles and problems into your world that can make you afraid. However, there is much more about faith – and the voice of confidence – that can make you strong and unafraid. Don’t worry about your obstacles. They are cowards, but they will bluff you if they can…or if you allow them to do so. If they see that you are afraid of them… they will overpower you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will disappear… out of sight.
Satan speaks through fear. He does so to make you doubt GOD’s forgiveness, to make you question whether God loves you, to make you worry about the future, to discourage you, and to make you feel that GOD is not in control. He wants you to sink into a pit of self-pity and despair. But, it’s all one ‘BIG’ lie after another.
GOD speaks through FAITH. And when GOD speaks, everything has to move. He doesn’t want you to try to figure things out by your own reasoning, and way of thinking. Because, when you do, it takes away His power to work things out.
Of all the people I have ever known, those who have pursued their dreams and failed… have lived a much more fulfilling life than those who have put their dreams on a shelf simply because they feared failure.
So, keep your dreams alive. Don’t even think about giving up. Understand that, to achieve anything… requires faith and belief in yourself; vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember, “All things are possible for those who believe.”
