Isaiah 41:18 ‘Fear not, I am with you; be not dismayed; I am your God. I will strengthen you, and help you’
Often the enemy’s weapon of choice is planting fear, “What if this happens….?” …there are so many possibilities and what ifs. What we can be certain of, is that our LORD promises in his holy word to ‘strengthen’ and ‘help’. Fear can incapacitate a person, we are guided by Fr Bonga’s words in church “I trust in you LORD Jesus, I trust in you” There is no doubt that there is substantial turbulence in politics, crime, corruption and other disturbing news…these are the tools of the enemy. We are reminded that we are not defenceless in Ephesians 6:10,16 ‘Finally draw your strength from the LORD and his mighty power….hold faith as a shield.’ and in 2 Timothy 1:7 ‘For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control.’ God’s holy word is truth, you are strong enough to hold up the shield of faith, remember to ask a spiritual brother or sister to pray with you in agreement. Spend time with God and he will spend lots of time with you. Have a blessed, rest-filled and peaceful weekend.
