Our only light in the darkness . . .
Call on Him today . . . He will give you peace and comfort in the midst of worry and fear!
2 Timothy 1:7 ~
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but (He has given us a spirit) of power and of love and of sound judgement and personal discipline (abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control)” AMP
So God has given us power, love and sound judgement.
Power ~ The ability to change the atmosphere.
Love ~ The very characteristic of God that casts out all fear.
Sound Judgement (or mind) ~ A mind that has been delivered, rescued, revived. No longer affected by absurd, illogical and unfounded thoughts, and/or ideas.
This is the arsenal of weapons we have to defeat fear in our minds, and therefore, the enemy.
We need to get back our roar. Our fight. Go on the offensive instead of spending all our time on the defensive. It’s tiring, to say the least.
When a lion roars you can hear it 5 miles away! When they roar it’s to ~
I think this is cool . . . “Fear knocked at the door, Faith answered . . . And lo, No-one was there!”
(The majority of the content in his post is credited to Pat and Karen Schatzline. I saw them on Foxtel on the Daystar channel on Joni Table Talk. They have a book called, “Restore the Roar.”)
Whenever I feel fear I declare ~ “Get out of my head Satan, In the Name of Jesus!”
. . . to the altar of God ~ to God,
The source of all my joy!
Your Joy is my Strength! Nehemiah 8:10
He’s surely alive and in control . . .
And to quote an old Sunday school song . . .
“He’s got the whole world in His hands” . . .
And He’s not letting go!
We cry out to You ~ and ~
Heal us, O Lord, and we will be healed ~
Save us, and we will be saved ~
Our praises are for You alone!
Life ~ Protection ~ Comfort ~ Mercy ~ Grace ~ and lots of rain!
This is from the Amplified Bible. I looked up more than in the concordance, because I thought how can I be more than a conqueror?
Greek ~ Hupernikao ~ to vanquish beyond. From Nikao ~ to subdue.
So, in other words, I don’t just conquer, I vanquish, gain a decisive victory. I subdue, which gives a picture of those I’ve conquered under my feet.
Vanquish ~ crush, quell, rout(is to totally destroy)
Subdue ~ bridle, control, silence.
So of course this is in relation to conquering the things that the enemy (the devil) tries to bring against us. We can rout him, and silence him, and get the victory over his annoying persistence to destroy our lives. We must persist in breaking his power over our lives. Using the WORD of GOD will certainly help to do that.
Praise God, Jehovah Shammah, the One who is there for us always!
Be encouraged, God is with you, just call out to Him and He will always answer you if you call from your heart. This section of Romans says it all ~
