Do we understand followers of Jesus are not immune from troubles in this troublesome world? We are conquerors through Him, and we will not allow demons to separate us from the love of God. (Romans 8:37-39)
I was fearful being home without my husband when he worked at night. At my request an alarm system was installed, and we have cameras. Our subdivision is nice but not all people are nice. We live in a dangerous world, and it is perfectly okay to protect ourselves and property, but these things should never replace our faith and trust in God to protect us.
Do not fear nor distress God is with us. He strengthened us and still uphold His righteous right hand to help in our times of need. Those who rage against us will be ashamed and disgraced, and those who oppose us will be as nothing and perish. We will not find our enemies when searching for them. Fear! Why fear when serving a living God? I will not fear those who wage war against me. (Isaiah 41:10-16)
Are you pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. We must keep our eyes on the prize and not be defeated or allow the world to conquer us. We have the greatest role model in history, and through Jesus we are conquerors. (Philippians 3:14-18) (Romans 8:37)
As we grow spiritually through the Scriptures, let us continue our commitment to brightly shine in the SON Light amongst demonic forces. We must not fear or worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let our requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6)
