Standing On The Promises Of God, Part IV
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. Psalm 91:5,6
You can't help but notice today all the many sicknesses, strange diseases and other foreboding maladies afflicting the world and the media giving out this cure and that remedy non-stop with the side effects being worse than the disease. We are truly living in very frightful times with darkness closing in on all sides and our only hope is God!
Have you noticed that when you get a symptom or have a sickness or disease that fear comes to you at night, speaking to you about how serious your ailment is and that there is no help in your situation. The enemy always attacks when we are alone or at night when we are in a weakened state, tired, exhausted or just plain scared that what the devil is saying to us is in fact true! But God said you shall not be afraid of all these things coming upon the world because we have a refuge from the storms of life and He will protect us if we stay under the shadow of our heavenly Father.
Remember that we are not of this world, but we reside in Christ our Lord and the things of the world have no power or authority over those of us who have put our trust in Jesus! We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and we have all authority to tread upon serpents, scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall harm us!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7
