Knowledge breaks fear!

Verse for Today: Monday, April 09, 2012

Psalms 46:2&3 – Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.

Proper knowledge of the awesomeness of God makes us respond boldly to our fierce situations and circumstances. When we know the strength, power and all sufficiency of God, and decides to trust Him for all our situations, there is no need to fear anything else including tough situations or chaotic circumstances. God is above these situations and bigger than any problem we face. His power is greater than any other power in this world. So if we fear God and live for Him, there is no reason why we should fear any other force on earth. The sons of Korah who wrote this song out of their experience of knowing the awesome God and experiencing His power in their lives found that it was meaningless to fear their fierce circumstances. Their intimate and close relationship with God made them see their circumstances through God. Then they found that every thing else in this world was only a shadow in the light of His glory. As they experienced God’s power in their lives, they realized that they should be confident and live without fear and continue to serve their God in all their situations. Confidence in God helped them to realize how to draw strength and power from God to live courageously and with great confidence. The reality that natural calamities of any magnitude and attacks of any powerful enemy would not harm them put their lives on such a positive disposition to sing to the power of this God.

Dear reader, are you currently faced with tough opposition and insurmountable hindrances in life? Is the world showing you some of the worst scenarios of life to make you fearful and hopeless? Your enemies are formidable and the situations you face are difficult to overcome. But your spiritual enemy is far more powerful than those whom you see around and that he is using people, circumstances and situations to oppose and oppress you. The greatest blow they can send your way is to make your feet tremble with fear so that you would flatter and stumble. Your enemy knows that if your heart is filled with fear, you will fall flat on your face and plunge into defeat. The antidote to such opposition is to get to know your God who is willing to give you His power to strengthen you. Your circumstances might not change dramatically, but when you look at the circumstances through the Lord, you will only see how your Lord would handle your situation according to His power and wisdom. This knowledge will give you greater confidence to put all your trust on Him and relax in the midst of any chaos and confusion that the world will try to create to defeat you. God wants you to know today that the greatest opposition and hindrance are the difficult situations that the enemy will create to block you from going forward. He also wants you to understand that Jesus is your way and He shows you His heavenly light for you to go forward. In all your situations, Jesus is with you and He is holding you by your hand to go forward. So when confusions and oppositions come your way, He is extending His hands for you to hold tightly and take steps of faith. If there is darkness, hindrance and attack on you, it is important that you do look only at the Lord Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith to take you forward. He is with you today to make available all the grace that you need to hold on to Him and to put all your trust in Him to take you forward. So there is no reason why should you be afraid or anxious. Instead, take God and His Word as your power and guide every step of the way forward and march from victory to victory.

Psalms 48:14 – For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.

Thought for To Day

When you see the God of glory in His awesome power and strength, you will not fear any other powers which try to shake you up.
