FEAR NOT! From The Editor, Angel Chavez
Now that elections are over, we must remain calm and fear NOT, but we must keep on doing the right things.
“Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
“But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!” Matthew 14:25-27
FEAR NOT…FEAR NOT…FEAR NOT…Hearing these WORDS in our innermost being and knowing its source is key. Hearing and hearing till those words occupy the right spot in our heart, a place of Peace in The Lord. Real solid peace cannot be found anywhere else!
“I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So, do not be troubled or afraid. John 14:27
WHEN IT COMES TO ELECTIONS, GLOBAL WARMING, OR ANY PERSONAL ISSUES. THE SOLUTION’S SOURCE IS THE SAME. TRYING TO REMOVE GOD OUT HIS THRONE BY REPLACING HIM OF HIS DUTIES, IS WHERE IDOLATRY STARTS. He wants us to trust him not to remove him out his throne, our heart.
HEARING, TRUSTING AND OBEYING, IS KEY TO SWIMMING IN GOD’S PEACE!
Whether we like the President elected or not, we must keep the President and everyone in authority and their family in our daily Prayers. First for our own sake and knowing that they need our help, because they will have to give account of what they do:
“Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account.
Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.” Hebrews 13:17
It works like this: if we do not pray sincerely for them, we will not submit to them, and by not submitting to them, we are attracting judgement to our own lives.
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.” Romans 13:1-2
GOD’S AGENDA MUST BE OUR AGENDA IN THE FIRST PLACE, THEN HE PERSONALLY MAKES SURE THAT WE ACCOMPLISH OUR OWN AGENDA.
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Timothy 2:1-4
Acting with God’s wisdom is easy and self-beneficial, includes peace, joy and blessings for our family, friends, and community.
If you are reading and thinking: This is too difficult, but your heart is telling you that this the right state of being, Jesus will equip you correctly if you ask Him.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
ACQUIRE HIS LOVE, PEACE, SELF CONTROL AND POWER BY PRAYING LIKE THIS:
Lord, I do believe that Jesus of Nazareth took my place in the Cross. Lord, I am sorry for all my bad choices, please forgive me. I believe Jesus was raised on the third day for my justification. Jesus, I receive you as my Lord and Savior. Your Holy blood cleanses me right now and God gives me a new heart and eternal life. Now my name is written in the book of life, guaranteed by the following written law:
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” Romans 10:9-10
