What do you fear in life?! Is it the acceptance of the world?! Is it being finically stable?! Or maybe hoping you can get by in life without disrupting the flow of mankind?! Or could it be the lies filling your head that you may never be good enough to start a family?! Or that you will never be able to save the world?!
The enemy distracts us by consuming our minds with all these lies. Those fears that take our eyes off of God, our Creator. The One whom formed us in our mothers womb for a purpose (Jeremiah 1:5), the one who created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1) the One who separated the sea and land and set boundaries upon the waters (proverbs 8:29), the One who loves us so much He gave His one and only Son so that we may live (John 3:16) . The one so powerful beyond our understanding (Job 37:5). The One who wants you to live eternity in Heaven. (John 6:40)

I mean, the enemies competition is no joke, no wonder he tries to take our eyes off Him!! Glorious kingdom in heaven, tortuous lake of fire, tough decision for eternity. Guys!! What are we doing letting the enemy take hold of our lives!! Fear is a liar y'all, "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your fathers desires. he was a murder from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. when he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is the father of lies." John 8:44. These lies you live with, come from the enemy: the father of lies, not from God. And the worry that comes with it, gets us nowhere.
Worry gets us nowhere.
Let's take out that fear and only fear the one who created us: Our Lord and Savior. For when we seek Him, He will deliver us from all fears (Psalm 34:4). And He will strengthen us, and help us. Isaiah 41:10 and 13 says this: "So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.", " For I am your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you."
"Do not fear, for I will help you!"
Worrying is an expression of fear, doubting in faith, not trusting in the one who created you. Its not fully letting go of the world to follow Christ. Colossians 3:2 tells us to "set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." You see, we're so busy worrying about what the world thinks of us that we don't fix our eyes on our Lord. It's time to change that. It's not easy, but it is possible with God. Fear is a liar and when we acknowledge that, we can move it aside and say "not today satan!! I have Jesus on my side". Who's with me?!

"I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears." Psalm 34:4 God can and will deliver us from our fears, but we first must fear our Lord!! More on that to come...
"But be sure to fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things He has done for you." 1 Samuel 12:24
Not today satan, I have Jesus on my side!!
