Who Holds Yours? Saturday, November 11th 2017
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we are going to be vulnerable at times. We are told that God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. That statement is very true when we are trusting in God, but when we allow fear to dominate our thoughts instead of our faith we become vulnerable to the enemy.
Friend, today is the day you trust the Lord with that conversation at work you are supposed to have with your co-worker about Jesus. Today is the day that you make that commitment to serve the Lord in your local community of faith. Today is the day you trust the Lord with that decision He has been telling you to make. No matter what it is, today is your day. Trust the Lord!
Will this make you vulnerable? Yes... to the Lord. Backing down, freezing up, allowing your fear to paralyze you will make you vulnerable to the enemy. Who will you allow to hold your vulnerability today?
1 Peter 5:8-11
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Life Lesson: When we fear we give the enemy our vulnerability, when we have faith we trust God with our vulnerability.
Help me to not fear. Help me to trust You more. Thank You for leading the way and giving me a sound mind, power, and love. Today, with Your guidance, I will walk by faith. In Jesus name, AMEN!
