2 Samuel 22:2-4
2 “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
3 The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; my Savior, You save me from violence.
4 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies..
Today’s inspiration: Fear is our greatest enemy. If we can conquer fear, we will not be defeated by sickness or poverty. The Lord is our rock, our fortress and our deliverer, the God of my strength whom we will trust. He is our shield, the horn of our salvation, our stronghold, our refuge, our Saviour. When we call upon Him we will surely be delivered. 2 Samuel 22:2-4. He is the light and our salvation. Why should we be afraid? Psalm 27:1. Even if an army comes against us, we should not be afraid but be confident. Psalm 27:3.
A defeated life is not in God’s plan. He has given us every tool needed to live daily and to achieve success. A Christian is defeated when he or she yields to defeat. We do not need to be defeated in our life. Ruth never yield to defeat but instead obey every instruction of the Lord given through Naomi. Esther go beyond self to risk her life to conquer fear. Paul did not yield to defeat. He says we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Philippians 4:13.
All we need is to establish God’s word in our heart and use them wherever necessary to fight against fear, every temptation and defeat. God is alive and He is real the very essence of our power.
We can conquer fear only by our faith. With faith all things are possible. Luke 1:37. What are the tools that are in your hands that God can use? For Elijah, it was his mantle, for Moses it was his rod that performs the miracles. For Samson his strength is in his hair. God will use what you have been trained or skilled for.
What geared us to achieve our goal? Determination to defeat the enemy of fear, anxiety anger, hard work and faith will hep you achieve your goal. Once the mind is void of all the negative emotions, you will not be defeated in life. The first enemy to attack is fear. If fear dies, all the other six nations will crumble and fall. Deuteronomy 20:17. Fear is also conquered by love. 1 John 4:18. So receive the Love of God. Love surpasses all. Love never fails.
Love is patient, love is kind and does not envy nor boast. Seek the Love of God first. God bless all of you at work.
