Now a days our minds are so full of so many things that we are not sure what to believe. Listening to the news, watching TV, hearing what others are saying, and so much more. All these things can steal our focus off who we should know and believe in.
We even look to ourselves for the answers. We trust ourselves more and more each day.
One of the things that come in trusting and believing what we hear is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear that the circumstances in our lives will not go away or that they will not turn out the way we want them to.
Fear can freeze you in your circumstances. You can’t move forward when fear comes in. Fear blinds you from what God is doing in you and for you.
... Be not afraid, only believe.
Amplified Bible (AMP)
... Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.
... Fear not: believe only
ANDREW MURRAY - “Jesus, I believe in Thy glory; I believe in Thine omnipotence; I believe in Thy power working within me. I believe in Thy living, loving presence with me, revealing itself in Divine power."
Do not be occupied with feelings or experiences. You will find it far simpler and easier just to trust and say, "I am sure He is all for me." Get rid of yourself for the time”
“don't think or speak about yourself; but
Think what Jesus is.
And then remember it is believe always”
I like when he said “Do not be occupied with feelings or experiences.”
This is so true, the more we occupy our thoughts, our days, and our lives with what we feel or the things we experience, the more fear will come in and the more unbelief will come in and cause us to either go backwards in our walk or freeze us right where we are.
The only way to keep moving forward in life is to be not afraid only believe in the one true God.
Mark 5:36 (PHILLIPS) ... “Now don’t be afraid, just go on believing!”
Look to Him. Know Him.
Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.
(adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth)
“Be not afraid that my coming will be to no purpose, only believe that I will make it turn to a good account.” Therefore fear not, faint not. Faith is the only remedy against disquieting grief and fear at such a time: let that silence them, Only believe. Keep up a confidence in Christ, and a dependence upon him, and he will do what is for the best. Believe the resurrection, and then be not afraid.
Lester Sumrall - Turning on the light reveals the reality that there is nothing to fear. This is a basic principle: much of what we fear will never bother us again if we see it for what it is. God is light, and by turning to God’s Word we can see that nothing should terrorize or paralyze us. By continuing to absorb biblical truth through daily reading and study, we will walk in the light as He is in the light; and in that blessed environment fear cannot get to us.
Amplified Bible (AMP)
28 We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose...
So be not afraid, Only Believe.......
