Let Not your Heart be Troubled

Facing Fear and Adversity

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Psalms 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou has considered my trouble; thou has known my soul in adversities; 8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Dear Friends: May it bless your heart to know that those who truly love God and courageously try to live by faith and walk in love will face fear and adversity along the way. May it comfort you somehow to know that in this you are not alone. If you are facing extreme adversity or struggling with fearful situations may these words of inspiration express to you that our God is an awesome God and He is able to deliver us from the enemy’s clutches. We will already be halfway home when we stop and face the fears in our lives, and with God’s help begin to deal with adversities head on. By stopping I mean absolutely stop, turn around, look at that fearful situation squarely and tell yourself you aren’t going to be afraid and on the run anymore because the Bible promises God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:3).

Being afraid causes us to make poor decisions in life, which in turn could lead to adversities that are rather of our own making. Being paralyzed by fear and doubt hinders us from living as God intended and being all He has created us to be in that we don’t move freely in His love and trust Him with our lives. If we doubt His very existence or His unconditional love for us we will shrink back in fear and not move out in faith and experience the abundant life He has for us. John 10:10 - The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.

Trials and tribulations are common to the race of man, but I am writing today to encourage you, dear ones, not to be overcome by fear and adversity. It is my prayer that these words of inspiration will empower you to rise up and walk in faith and victory, knowing God is for you and not against you. God has your best interests at heart, and as the scripture above states, He has known your soul in adversities, and truly has known our soul to a degree we cannot fathom. God is very much aware of the hard places and negative circumstances in our lives. He has considered the troubles we are going through and has not given us over to the adversary, rather as we reach out to Him for help, and trust in Him when we are fearful or afraid, He will set our feet in a larger place.

Isaiah 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

Fear may have you feeling boxed in at present. Your adversities may leave you with the impression that you are unable to move in any direction. But take hold the Hand of God, beloved, ask Jesus to come into your heart and be the Lord of your life. He will see you through the adversity. He will calm every fear and you shall obtain joy and gladness for sorrow and sighing shall flee away (Isaiah 35:10). He will come and save you!

The grace of our Lord be with you all.
