There’s Nothing To Be Afraid Of
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
“For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is , the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” Hebrews 2:14, 15
“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15
“The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?” Psalm 118:6
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my Helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
Hebrews 13:5, 6
The Father Wants You Well!
“He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” Psalm 107:20
Never doubt for even a moment as to whether or not God wants you well. There are too many Scriptures in both the Old and The New Testament that declare the will of God for men and women to be healed, whole and well. If you are in need of healing, begin by taking the Scriptures that declare your healing and receive them before the Father. Thank Him in the Name of Jesus for their reality in your life. Meditate and confess them. Then believe God to share His wisdom with you about your health issues so that He can help you correct anything that is out of line. HE WILL HELP YOU!

Put Satan To Flight
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
This part of our spiritual warfare is either sometimes not recognized or it is omitted from the plan. Submission to God plays a very important role in our being able to stand against our adversary. In the light of this Scripture, submission and obedience to God are prerequisites to successful resistance to the devil.
Scripture reading: 2 Corinthians 10:3-6; 1 Peter 5:6-10
The Name Above All Names
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
As believers we must study the Name of Jesus and the authority that we have in the use of His Name. There is no name that compares with His Name and His Name has dominion above every other name. Jesus means, “Jehovah is salvation.” When we speak the Name of Jesus in faith, we are declaring the delivering power of God in that situation. Make it a point to study the Name of Jesus and its authority.

There Is Always A Way of Escape
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” I Corinthians 10:13
Have you ever felt that you were just pressed beyond measure? Problems on every side? Seemingly no way out? More on you than you can bear? This Scripture reveals something very, very special to us. God says that He will not allow you to be tempted above that which ye are able to deal with. Do you understand what that means. It means that whatever temptation has found its way into your life: that God has determined that you can deal with it. If not, it would be impossible for it to found its way into your life. That temptation would not have been able to find its way into your life. Change your view of the situation. See yourself through God’s eyes as the one who is more than a conqueror through Him Who loves you. Receive the Father’s estimate of your ability to escape any temptation victoriously.

You Speak To The Mountain
“For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark 11:23
Too many times in our lives as believer’s we are asking God to do things for us that He has authorized us to do. One of them is speaking to the obstacles of life that get in our way. We should always pray and believe the Holy Spirit to help us and shine the light of the Word in our hearts. We, however are to speak the Word of God to things that are in our way that are attempting to keep us from the will of God in our lives. Tell the mountain (sickness, strife, lack, bondage, etc.) to be cast into the sea…you do it!
Scripture reading: Proverbs 18:20, 21; James 3
You Are Never Alone
“Let your conduct be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” So that we may boldly say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:5, 6
You may be in a position in this natural life right now where you “feel” as though you are by yourself. But you are not. The New Testament teaches us that Christ is in us and that God is at work in us. We are also taught that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. So there is no way that as a believer that you could ever be alone. Take Him at His Word, believe His Word and He will manifest Himself to you.
Scripture reading: Psalm 27:1-14; John 14:21
The Portrait of A Righteous Man
Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, and delighteth greatly in His commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever. Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. A good man sheweth mercy, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honor. The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
“For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.”
The Word of God is likened to medicine when it comes to the effect that it can have on our bodies. When some symptom of sickness or discomfort comes against our bodies, the first thing that we should do is run to the medicine cabinet: THE WORD OF GOD! Locate Scriptures that declare God’s will for the soundness of your body. Ingest them and allow them to do their work. See the whole process as God has laid it out in the Scripture reading below.

Who’s That Inside of You?
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4
When you gave your life to the Lord, God Almighty came to live inside of you. The Creator of the universe, the One Who is All Knowing, All Powerful and Who is everywhere, the One Who is All Wisdom is living inside of you. The one who is in the world, satan, the anti-Christ, is no match for the One Who is living in you. Today is a good day to expect the One Who is inside of You to show Himself mighty and strong on your behalf. Take Him at what He has said in the Scriptures and receive it as so.
