The World And Fear. Activate Your Faith!
The world is certainly looking so bad and fear is rising. People are losing jobs, facing house evictions, can not pay the monthly mortgage. Some does not have enough food to eat anymore. We have been hit hard and it is getting more difficult as the days go by.
For so many it is even more difficult, losing loved ones and was not able to say their last good-byes. Stories after stories of so many families that is so heartbreaking, it is so hard to swallow. Yet, for so many, their faith has keep them going. For some the fear is taking over.
Through this whole world situation, we are all facing the same enemy. The enemy is stealing, killing and destroying lives.
Unfortunately this enemy is beyond our human eyes to see. We have to activate our faith to see the full spectrum of this whole battle. This is the faith in God that we need to activate. Faith in knowing that God will always be with us to fight for us, alongside with us and in us. Unless we activate our faith in God the fear will overtake us.
I used to be fearful in so many aspects of life. But, once I understand the word of God and seeing how true His words are, as it unfolds before my eyes, my fears begun to go away.
I am now at the point in my life that when fear starts to creep in, I defeat it with the word of God and my faith in Him. I understand that (my struggles is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms, Ephesians 6:12).
Unfortunately, so many have underestimated the power of our unseen enemies. Even worse so many doesn’t believe the spiritual realm at all. They live their lives as if they are gods themselves. They do whatever they want to do without acknowledging that there is a God who created them in His image (So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them, Genesis 1:27).
So as the world situation is getting worse and fear is rising, we must admit that we are limited to fight our struggles on our own. We must acknowledge the power of God through His Son Jesus in our lives. Activate our faith in Him that can move mountains. It’s not a literal mountains, but our struggles that we will move.
Do not underestimate the presence of our enemy. But never doubt that God’s word and your faith in Him is more powerful to defeat any of the attacks of the enemy. You just need to surrender your life completely to God and allow Him to work through your situations and fill your life with faith instead of fear.
You might ask, how could I possibly know your situation and how to bring about a solution to your problems? Well, I don’t have to know all the struggles you are going through, because it is not me who can solve your problems. It is God who knows everything about you. And He can see every details of your situations. In fact He knows what is in your heart. He knows about your fears. He knows exactly how you are feeling right now.
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Luke 12:7
Now you see, God knows everything about you. He knows about all your secrets. But do not fear, because God loves you so much! You are very important to Him. He want to help you with all of your struggles. You simply need to trust Him.
Friend, I encourage you that if you put your trust in the Lord Jesus who died for you, your fear will go away. Jesus will give you His peace that surpasses all understanding. (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).
Activate your faith friends in this world that is full of fear. You are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.
