Fear No Evil

Fear no evil, not because evil does not exist or is not a threat to your life and progress, but because I am. I am good. I am for you. I am sovereign over your circumstances. Trust Me, I am not trembling at the thought of all that you are facing, wondering how in the world we will overcome the mounting obstacles. Do you know that some of the very things that you are freaking out about I have allowed into your life because it pleases Me to see My children trusting Me in the face of the impossible?

I know the beginning from the end. Change your perspective and change your life. Look at everything, every single thing, that is allowed in your life from My perspective. Take a stand against the forces of evil that are coming against all that I have promised you by bold and steadfast confidence in prayer. Relinquish your need to control other people and your tendency to try and have it all figured out, which is just another way to give yourself the illusion of being in control. Let it be enough for you to know that I am in control; trust that I have your best interests in mind.

Free yourself from the prison of your sentiment that imagines the way things are coming together, or falling apart as you often believe, are some random series of events that are leading to failure and more heartbreak.

Lighten up My precious child. In this world you will have trouble and suffering, but take courage- I have overcome the world. What does this mean for you in the here and now? It means that you are to believe wholeheartedly that I am working ALL things for your good if you love Me. Focus on loving Me and let Me work all things for your good and My glory. Your happiness should not hinge on specific outcomes or certain people. Do not set yourself up as a sitting duck for the enemy by allowing anything to become an idol in your life.

You may not believe yourself to be practicing idolatry but if you are unable to experience My love, peace and joy when things are not going the way your opinions says they ought to, you are showing Me that you have placed your trust and hope in something or someone other than Me. Renounce your idols and come boldly to the throne of grace asking Me to give you fresh eyes to see the abundant life I died for you to have already in your lap, today, not tomorrow, not in the sweet by and by, not when your desired outcomes have been realized, but right this very moment.

Pause and breath in the breathe of life. Release your need to understand every detail of how I am moving on your behalf. Trust Me and obey Me. Keep your eyes fixed on My Words and My face. Take My hand and step out boldly into the day eager to do My will in all things. Leave your preconceived ideas and opinions of what My goodness should look like behind. Hold everything and everyone loosely. Nothing else is needed for your fulfillment but to know Me. I do not tire of reminding you to seek first My Kingdom and My righteousness and all of these things will be added to you as well.

I am a generous Father. I am not holding out on you.
