Conquering Fear

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

What is the first thing you do when you feel threatened or overwhelmed? Do you reach for the phone to call a friend or do you get on your knees and pray? In our scripture today, our heavenly FATHER is giving us instructions for what He wants us to do; prayer should always be our first step.

We need to make a choice to walk by faith. This may mean going forward even though we do not know what is in front of us or it could mean being still before the LORD!

GOD holds our lives within His omnipotent (all knowing) mighty hands! If you are tempted to become fearful, ask Him to speak to your heart and encourage you in the way you should go.

{Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed for I am your God, I will strengthen you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand}

Fear is not from GOD (2 Timothy 1:7). It is deception from the enemy! Stay focused on the LORD and keep His Word in your heart and He will direct your path.

Love & Blessings,
