Nobody should be forced to live with fear.
‘Fear is my perception of what my senses are telling me’ (My definition).
My perception creates thoughts in my mind and these thoughts create emotions. Emotions effect my state of being – physically, mentally and spiritually.
The opposite of fear is faith. My definition of faith is: ‘believing something is, when all you senses tell you it isn’t.’
Jesus said to Peter, “Satan has asked to sift you like a grain of wheat, but I have prayed for you, so that your faith may not fail you…” Luke 22:31-31.
In the human sense, ‘sifting, like a grain of wheat’ is the same as , ‘filling you with fear’.
Lastly, always remember, it’s not what’s happening in our country that creates our fear and despondency, its how we perceive what is happening that creates the fear for our future and robs us of our peace and joy.
I encourage you all to pray the below prayer, every day, preferably first thing in the morning, for both yourself and those you love.
Psalm 91 – (My Version).
Because I come to you, My Father in heaven, for safety, and remain under the protection of you, the one true and all powerful God,
I can say to you, “You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.”
You will keep me safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases.
You will cover me with your spiritual truth; I will be safe in your care; your faithfulness will protect and defend me.
I will not fear any dangers at night or sudden attacks during the day
Or any evil that comes against me by surprise or evil that I am expecting to come against me.
A thousand may fall dead beside me, ten thousand all around me, but I will not be harmed.
I will see you punish those who carry out evil against me.
I have made you, my Father, my defender, you, the Most High, my protector,
And so no disaster will touch me, no violence will come near me or my family.
My Father has put his angels in charge of me to protect me wherever I go.
With great tenderness and affection they will keep me away from all danger and prevent me from falling into sin and into trouble
I will remove all love of self and dependence on my senses from within me; no matter how strongly these try to control me.
My Father says,
“I will save those who love me and will protect those who accept me as LORD.
When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them. I will rescue them and honor them.
I will reward them with long life; I will save them.”
