There's no comfort like the one ministered into our weary hearts by the Comforter Himself, the Holy Spirit. There's no assurance that envelops our fickle minds and massages our trembling hearts back into stately confidence like the persuasive and convincing voice of the scriptures!
As soon as we hear the majestic voice of our heavenly Father, all the garbage of fear, anxiety, doubts, indecision etc, that the Devil dumped into us when he slipped surreptitiously into our gullible hearts, are erased! But it's our absolute faith in God's Word that makes it a healing balm, a divine eraser, a lethal weapon of spiritual warfare, and a promise keeper!
If you heard or read God's Word and you're still buffeted with waves of doubt, then go over the Word again and again and again, until it sips through your mind and settles indelibly in your delicately fertile heart! Now, the very moment our hearts retain His Word, a wave of inexplicable confidence overwhelms our entire being. We no longer hope or even believe, but now, we just KNOW! - 1Jn.5:14:15.
At this stage, the course of nature, human authority, and demon's powers are totally disabled to make room for the cornucopian fulfillment of the infallible promises of the creator of the entire universe, in our lives! Little wonder the scriptures declared, "To him who believes..." and "With God, nothing shall be impossible!"
Now, I challenge you to spend some quality time this week to meditate and pray effectually, personalizing this scripture until you go from understanding it, through believing it, to ultimately KNOWING that God is saying this to you NOW!
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. “See, all your angry enemies lie there, confused and humiliated. Anyone who opposes you will die and come to nothing. You will look in vain for those who tried to conquer you.
Those who attack you will come to nothing. For I hold you by your right hand— I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you. Though you are a lowly worm, O child of God, don’t be afraid, child of God, for I will help you. I am the Lord, your Redeemer. I am the Holy One of Israel.’ You will be a new threshing instrument with many sharp teeth. You will tear your enemies apart, making chaff of mountains. You will toss them into the air, and the wind will blow them all away; a whirlwind will scatter them. Then you will rejoice in the Lord. You will glory in the Holy One of Israel.
“When the poor and needy search for water and there is none, and their tongues are parched from thirst, then I, the Lord, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, will never abandon them. I will open up rivers for them on the high plateaus. I will give them fountains of water in the valleys. I will fill the desert with pools of water. Rivers fed by springs will flow across the parched ground. I will plant trees in the barren desert— cedar, acacia, myrtle, olive, cypress, fir, and pine. I am doing this so all who see this miracle will understand what it means— that it is the Lord who has done this, the Holy One of Israel who created it.
I'm always amazed by God's love for us expressed in His determination to be very personal with us. If you'll only take His Words as seriously as He states them, the results will remain eternally etched in the secret chambers of your "incredible memories"!
Have a incredible day in God's awesome presence.
Apostle Steve Adonai.
