For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a Spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self control. 2 TIMOTHY 1 : 7
FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF YOUR KING !!
For we are not wrestling against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (super-natural) sphere .. Ephesians 6 : 12
As Christians, both young and old, we are no strangers to the truth that there is a monumental spiritual battle being waged all around us.And, it is for this reason that when it comes to all Spiritual things in your life, you ensure that you remain anchored, bold,
diligent, encouraged, faith-filled, steadfast and strong in Jesus Christ !!
Your Spiritual life is forever moving and changing .. And .. You are the one person that has the final authority in deciding in which direction you move and how exactly you change.
Understand that spiritually .. You are either moving forward or you are on the verge of slipping
backwards !! .. You are either growing or you are spiritually dying !!
Constantly moving and changing .. because .. The one thing that does not exist is a neutral, or dormant Christianity.
It is impossible to push a button and put your Christian walk on hold, neither can you
conveniently pack it into storage to use a little later.
It Is Important !! .. It Is Vital !! .. It is critical for you to Keep Pressing On In Jesus !!
Now, bare in mind that as you make the determined resolve to Keep Pressing On and Moving Forward in Jesus .. You are going to be met with some opposition.
The devil is going to come against you, deceiving you in every way that you give him permission to. And, one of the most common weapons he will attempt to throw at you is .. Fear.
You Must Resist Fear !! .. At All Costs !! Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real !! It is NOT real !! It is FALSE !!
Fear is a parasite !! .. And .. Anytime you allow the filthy hands of fear to get a grip on you, it will deceive you into a state of total paralysis .. Effectively putting a stop to your walk forward with Jesus !!
Fear will freeze you in place, preventing you from making progress.
While it is undoubtedly the truth that in your life you are dealing with and experiencing some difficult situations and circumstances, some stubborn worries and concerns and some
relentless confusion and frustrations .. Regardless of these things .. Do Not Be Overcome with Fear !!
Entertaining fear in your life is not in your spiritual job description .. You Do Not Have To !! .. Jesus Has overcome and taken the sting out of each and every trial and tribulation that has been and will be formed against you !! .. So .. You Keep On Keeping On !! .. Pressing On In Jesus !! .. Amen !!
That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of,
and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God [the inner fire] that is in you by
means of the laying on of my hands [with those of the elders of your ordination]
.. 2 Timothy 1 : 6
Fear Has Stolen From You For Long Enough .. Don’t You Lose Another Second To It !!
Today, you make your mind up that no matter what .. You
Are Going To Keep Your Eyes Fixed Firmly On Jesus !! .. Make The Choice To Grow
And Move Forward In His Footsteps !!
Stir Yourself Up For Jesus Christ !! .. You have the gracious gift of God’s inner-fire burning within you .. So .. You boldly stand tall and fan the flames, in order for the world to see Jesus’ fire burning brightly in and through you !!
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind .. 2
Timothy 1 : 7
Receive God’s Word !! .. This Truth Is Your Truth !!
Focusing on and fellowshipping with Jesus will most assuredly fill you with all the courage and confidence you need, q so that you can Keep Moving Forward !!
CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A SACRIFICE THAT YOU MAKE ..
IT IS A SACRIFICE THAT YOU TRUST
