"Don't Be Afraid. ...Don't Be Frightened"

Those who are humble are happy, because the earth will belong to them."

 So, how are you fulfilling Jesus' command to be perfect before God;...

 Because you see, ... people who are not proud will inherit the land and will enjoy complete peace.

-...as they trust God, commit their lives to him, and delight in serving the Lord. 

 Therefore, what are your longings?

And this question may surprise you, because perhaps you thought your longings had nothing to do with keeping your life on track; but I couldn't disagree more.

For you heart is crucial.

 For you see,... when we submit to God's plans we can trust our desires.

For, our assignment is found at the intersection of God's plan and our pleasures.

 So what is it that you love to do?

And, what brings you joy and a sense of satisfaction?

For, God has made us what we are.

And in Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing. ...

So that means that, you are a custom design and you are tailor-made. Where God perscribed your birth.

So, regardless of the circumstances that surrounded your arrival, you are not an accident.

For God planned you before you were born. ...

 And so, the longings of your heart then, are not incidental; they are critical messages.

In which, the desires of your heart are not to be ignored; they are to be consulted.

 And so, as the wind turns the weather vane, so God uses your passions to turn your life.

For God is too gracious to ask you to do something you hate.

 And that's why in Leviticus 26.6 God says, that, ... "He will give peace to our country; He will make us lie down in peace; and no one will make us afraid. And that's the reason why, we can lie down and go to sleep, and... wake up again because the Lord gives us strength.?

 Therefore, God has set before you two choices.

If you want the Lord to protect you, provide for you, and nourish you, then why pursue the path that leads to judgment.

 So, consider the path you now are on.

What changes if any do you need to make in order to get back on the right track?

For the Lord gives strength to his people, the Lord blesses his people with peace.

By,... satisfying us, because he holds all the power and protection we need. ...

So, depend on God in every part of your life, and he will guide, protect , and comfort you. ...

 "Therefore, may the Lord watch over you and give you peace."

 Because,... "God cares about you. "

 "So, happy are the people who know how to praise you.

For the Lord lets them live in the light of his presence."

 And so,... when do you feel safe?

When your spouse is with you?

When the doors are locked?

When the alarm is on?

Or, when you have enough money for any situation?

Well, I hate to disappoint you; but eventually all these securities can fail.

So, ask God to help you depend on him for your security.

 

Because this is what the Lord All-Powerful says,... "don't... be afraid. ... don't be frightened;... .For, I am with you and will save you" says the Lord. ..So don't let your hearts be troubled. ...
