Over-coming Fear(Part2)

Discussion in 'Evangelism' started by Olaitan Bosede, Aug 1, 2011.

  1. Mat.10:29-32-'Are not two
    sparrows sold for a farthing?
    And one of them shall not fall
    on the ground without your
    Father.But the very hair of
    your head are all numbered.Fear you not therefore,you are of
    more value than many
    From these words of Christ,I've
    come to realise,God cares about
    me,more than I can ever care,about myself.If He saw it
    needful,to count the hair on my
    head and attached a number to
    them,inorder to keep an accurate
    record of them,how much
    more,will He take into account,my whole person.If He
    so cared about something of
    me,that I care less for,how
    much more,will He care for
    those things,I actually care for
    and guard. Psalm121:3-He will not suffer
    your foot to be moved:He that
    keeps you,will not slumber...Even
    while you and I are enjoying a
    good night rest,God is keeping
    vigil for our sake,all round the clock.If the Maker of all things,is
    my security,what thing,shall I
    fear?If the LORD is my strength
    and my shield,what force,can
    over-power me?If God be for
    us,who can be against us?He that spare not His own Son but
    delivered Him up for us all,how
    shall He not with Him also freely
    give us all things?(Rom.8:31-32)
    The Word of God is quick and
    powerful and sharper than any twoedge sword...(Heb.4:12);all
    you need, to transform this
    Word, to your sword of
    judgement,against fear and all
    other evil,is Faith.You have
    access to this Word as a child of God,faith is what activates
    the POWER in this Word.Presence
    of fear in a Christian,is an
    indication,that faith is absent
    (Mat.14:25-31).To live like a
    person,you will need to understand such person and
    operate as that person.To be
    Christ-like,you must understand
    Christ and operate like
    Him.Christ understood faith and
    taught His disciples,faith,to the very end.How then can we be
    His follower,without knowing and
    having faith?
    Don't say,'I am not worthy,I
    have done this wrong and that
    wrong,too many wrongs for a believer',who made you a judge?
    You don't judge anyone,not
    even yourself.God is the only
    judge and He judges in
    favour,of His people
    (Rom.8:33).The fact that you are today saved,is not because you
    did anything right,to qualify you
    but the love God has for
    you,from the beginning and it is
    only right,to love Him back.To
    love God back,is to get rid of all fears,in your life.There is no
    fear in love;but perfect love
    cast out fear because fear has
    torment.He that fears,is not
    made perfect in love(1John4:18).
    I am not writing all these,that we may go on,living a careless
    or carefree life,but that,we may
    realise,we are humans and we
    can make mistakes(mistakes are
    not delibrate) and no amount of
    mistakes can run out,God's love, for us because He loves us,so
    much.You are His child and He's
    your Father and you better
    start getting used to this
    fact.For what father,in his right
    mind,would give up his only son,for the redemption of
    slaves and servants?God gave
    up His Son,Jesus Christ,to
    redeem sons and
    daughters,living in ignorance of
    their true identity. Don't be imprisoned by fear,in
    anything,rather,imprison fear,in
    all things. To be continued.
