Good Night and Blessed Sleep!!

Good Night and Sleep a Peaceful Sleep!!! The Lord tells Us “Fear Not”!!!

Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Isaiah 41:11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.

I’m not sure about you, but I believe we all have some fears. Some of us don’t want to admit them, we may even be embarrassed by them, but there’s nothing wrong with having fear. One of my great fears is heights. I don’t like to be more than three feet off the ground. Many fear dogs, many fear going out in public, many fear New Places, New people. I have issues with sleeping any where even my children’s homes.
Thinking about how deranged our world is. The Babies who have not yet been in the world as we see it are being murdered in their Mother’s wombs the safest place they should be. In the last year we have seen and been horrified at the shootings at Churches, again a place that we should be safe. Parents (and I use that term lightly), changing their children’s gender that is not just wicked but serious child abuse. Schools teaching there are many genders, taking the holocaust out of the history books. Same sex marriages then allowed to adopt children!!!
Then we read an amazing passage in Isaiah 41 which should help us. This is what God told Isaiah
Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Verse 10 is one of the great promises of Scripture. Because of our relationship with God we don’t need to fear anything. This is not our attempt at positive thinking. Our hope is not putting away negative thoughts. Instead our confidence and hope rests in the power of God Almighty!

We need to realize that anything and everything we face in this life is not bigger than our God. He created the great mountains, the great bodies of waters, the Heavens and Earths.

We are told in Matthew:
Matthew 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
Matthew 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
Matthew 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Matthew 10:31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

We need to take courage because our God is with us! That’s great news!! If we can hold onto this as a fact, not as wishful or as positive thinking . . . .then we should be able to stand firm and remain strong and courageous against evil; and even against temptation.
Remember Our lord cannot lie, he is all holy and righteous!! Pray and tell the Lord help me with this fear and forgive me for my fear and unbelief…

Love and prayers
