Fear Be Gone

When you’re down God knows how to lift you up. That’s the understatement of time! I cannot reveal specifics for confidentiality reasons, but lets just say that I could not stop dreaming last night even in the light of the fact that my basketball teams lost yesterday.

I ignore the passing of my Father because I regulate that to stories about Moses as the Father had to cover Moses’ eyes as he passed by because if he saw Him he’d drop dead instantly. How many times has an angel or Yahweh Himself been directly in my presence, and I had no idea? An angel of Yahweh actually wrestled with Jacob when he escaped from Esau. What if my restless dreams last night were a “wrestling” match with an angel?

I pass over the supernatural too easily. I’ll live here for some odd or even years, but it’s not even a flash in the pan for what my new body will experience in the actual presence of Adonai and the hosts of Heaven.

May we never forget that.

So do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day, for our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eye not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4, memory)

I want to share something my daughter gave me. I think it’s appropriate here. I’m not going to share the personal part.

Fear has two meanings… Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise.

Fear is paralyzing. It takes a supernatural experience to overcome it. You can experience it even if the only words from your lips is Jesus. I say “only words,” but that’s a bad semantic. Jesus is the most powerful word in any language, and it’s a word that represents the singular most powerful person to grace our soil.

One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Him as LORD.

He turns water into wine. He raises the dead.

And He’ll take your fear away.
