Angeline said in my cbox: I guess fear is dangerous? Unless you overcome it? =)
Well yes of course. There are some things we can probably overcome easily. But there are many areas that we simply just cannot overcome. Only God can help.
The devil uses fear to trap us. He uses it to stop us from doing what God wants us to do. It’s hard to overcome fear. Unless, in the power of Jesus Christ. God gives His children – those who believe in His name – the power and the boldness to overcome and to outwit the devil’s evil schemes.
Today I went to church. =) I particularly remember what the preacher – Bishop Margaret Benson Idahosa – said. I shall quote it. Hehe.
“Where there is FEAR, there is no FAITH; where there is FAITH, there is no FEAR!”
Faith in God! It’s extremely powerful. God does not forsake those who call out to Him. He will honor and bless those who learn to put their full trust in Him. Like I said, many times, we always forget to call out to God. But it’s only for your own good to remember. =)
2 Timothy 1:7 ~ For God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Did you know?
Rescuers in Pakistan are struggling to bring aid to more than a million people hit by storms that have also struck many other areas in south Asia. The storm and floods had killed 17 people, affected 1.3 million, and left an unspecified number missing in the province.
The floods also killed more than two dozen people in a northwestern tribal region in Pakistan and four people in neighboring Afghanistan. Monsoon storms have claimed more than 120 lives in neighboring India.
Every family is looking for one or two members. They are all missing . They need food to survive. And many are only surviving with bottled water and a few packets of biscuit.
Imagine if you were in such a state. That is REAL FEAR. If you lost one of your family members; or if you were all alone. All seems hopeless. But of course, the truth is, here you are enjoying yourself. All safe and sound, at least. =)
Pray for Pakistan.
