Psalm 37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
Living in fear of all the evil in the world today? Fear not! The Lord your God declares to you on today that He is with you.
Remember, as Christians, we walk by faith and not by sight.
Our hope is in Christ Jesus alone and not in what we see with the natural eyes, nor our circumstances.
The Apostle Paul asked a question in Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
What things are Paul referencing? The things that comes against us people of God like difficult circumstances and situations, hardships, etc. those things.
What shall we say concerning them? We shall say that "God is with us and if He is with us nothing or no one could be against us?
God has all power! He is the "Sovereign God"! He is able to lie down with one hand and rise up with the other. God says He knows foreknew us, He knows our every thoughts, the number of hair on our heads and the words we shall speak before we speak them.
Regardless of how chaotic the world may look and how far humanity appears to be moving away from God into the mindset of believing that they are their own god, the True and Living God is still very much in control of humanityand the world's affairs.
Psalm 18:31-For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?
Psalm 18:32-It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.
When the children of Israel were in fear of the Egyptian army that chased after them in their exit from Egypt, God allowed the enemies to chase His people, He allowed His people to cross the red sea safely on dry land and as the enemy approached the dry in land in the red sea, they all were able to get as far as the middle of the sea and God drowned them all.
As Moses spoke God's Word to the children of God back then, I speak to you those same words from God to you as His people on today that is found in Exodus 14:13-But Moses told the people, "Don't be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.
Your today may not be this day, but stick with God and you will eventually see the defeat of all your enemies because God's word is true and they will not return to Him void for He said that they will go forth and accomplish what He sent it to do.
You must know without a doubt that there is nothing in this life that you will go through that God is not already aware of before it even happened.
Remember, in Christ Jesus you are victorious, more than a conqueror. Therefore, the battle has been already fought and the victory was won over 2k years ago at Calvary. There is no need for you to fear nor fight.
Fear no evil for nothing shall separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.
Allow your mind to rest in prayer and the shelter of God’s Word on today for indeed peace is there even in the battles of life that is continuing to rage while we are here on earth.
Remember, even in the battles of life, that you already have the victory if you are in Christ and He is in you.
People of God, fear no evil for God is with you. Be still and know that the LORD He is God.
Keep God in view and the light of hope will never go out in your life.
Fear not! The LORD our God who declares that there is no other God but Him is with you this day and everyday.
God bless you all.
