GIVING UP ON MY FEARS!

TUESDAY – JUNE 22nd

fear-441402_1280

Psalms 34:4  I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

 
There are at least two kinds of fear mentioned in the Bible.  One is the fear of the Lord and the other is the fear of men and things.  The fear of the Lord is a good thing. 
Proverbs 9:10  The fear (respect, reverence, piety) of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
This respect for a Holy God is what will lead us to righteous living and spiritual growth. 
 
Psalms 118:8  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
 
The fear of Man and things however, can lead to complete failure in finding joy, peace and contentment.
 
Proverbs 29:25  The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
 
1.         Learn to be content with His provisions –
Philippians 4:11  Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
2.         Learn to praise Him at all times
1 Corinthians 10:31  Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
3.         Learn the art of surrender
Romans 6:19  I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
4.         Understand that He has you in sight all the time
Psalms 91:1  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
 
We as human beings often have worries and fears that are part of the human experience.  It is natural to fear, but not good to hold those fears in.  Today, list your fears. 
 
1.         Decide if they are good fears, (fear of the Lord) or bad fears (things out of my control).
2.         Ask Him to calm your fears
3.         Allow Him time to work things out in your life
 
Prayer:
Father, I know that I have doubts and fears.  Today, help me to turn them over to you and allow you to carry them for me.  Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.  May I learn to trust you with all that I have!  As I am learning to trust you, calm my fears and give me strength to face the challenges you allow to enter my life.  I love you and want to please you in all I do.  In Jesus name, Amen.
 
Learn to pray this kind of prayer daily in your walk with Him.
 
He loves you and will do great things in your life when given the opportunity to. 
 
MEMORY VERSE:
Psalms 34:4  I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
