He who lives his life in the awareness
of God's unseen presence
will enjoy the protection of the Almighty,
and the assurance of his care....
He will be able to confidently rest,
and declare his trust in God,
safe from the tricks and temptations
of both Satan and this world...
God puts his arm around my shoulders,
I look up into his face,
and I am not afraid--
I know tht he will tenderly
care for my life,
because I do what he says,
my defense is the truth,
and that's good enough for me...
You should never be afraid
when you trust in God.
You don't have to know what's going on--
night or day he sees everything,
He's watching out for you,
and nothing creeps up on him.
Nothing outside of his will, whether malice,
violence, or sickness, can happen to you...
You may witness a thousand people
stumbling and falling into sin,
but it doesn't have to happen to you--
in fact, you'll learn from it.
If you've kept your eyes on him,
if you've been living in his presence,
you'll get even closer when bad things happen, and nothing
can get to your heart...
You may not see them, but Angels
are constantly watching over you,
Ministering Spirits, sent to work
God's ordained will for you--
and to help you see through the traps
Satan has devised for your downfall.
You'll treat them with disdain,
those problems you were once afraid of...
This is all because of one thing:
You dedicated your heart to God.
Therefore, he will also do his part--
you'll see the reward of staying close to God,
you'll feel his hand on your shoulder,
once you're proven.
The moment you begin to pray,
he'll be there with answers...
Your exhaltation will come from God alone,
and life will be full of zest.
You won't fear challenges,
for you know that God is with you,
and your greatest reward
will be His presence in your life--
Here, while you live on Earth,
and afterwards too--for eternity.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
