Untroubled By Fear of Harm

It seems as though there is always something that one could legitimately be fearful or worried about. Believers ~ however ~ have been infused with strength from on high ~ to rise above fear and live in perfect peace.

Empowered With Inner Strength

In spite of all that seems to have gone wrong in society at large ~ falsifying of news
information ~ back stabbing ~ even among church goers ~ unethical behavior in much
of the business world ~ profanity-laced intimidating remarks ~ gang activity ~ armed
robberies ~ and even homicides ~ We are empowered ~ BY THE GRACE OF
GOD ~ to live above fear
.

A skeptic might ask the question: Are you kidding? Answer: no ~ absolutely not.
The skeptic says ~ you've got to help me understand that. How could that possibly be?
Here is the answer: It is because.we are not living by what we see in the natural.
We walk by faith and not by sight.

Tell me ~ says the skeptic: HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?. I just cannot fathom that.
First ~ and foremost ~ it is because of ~ and through ~ the power of the God we serve. He is able to do infinitely more than we dare ask, think, or imagine ~ according to the power that works in us!

Fortunately ~ or unfortunately ~ depending upon one's perspective ~ even
though we study and prepare as we are instructed ~ we do not always have an easy
answer. The wonderful thing is: We know the One ~ Who has all answers.

No Fear Of Harm

In our Creator's Book of Life and Love in Chapter One of Proverbs, we are told in the
The New Living Translation: "All who listen to Me will live in peace, untroubled by fear
fear of harm." How on earth could that be ~ though? HOW are we to do that?

It is a CHOICE. We find in our Creator's Book of Life in Psalm 55 in The Amplified Bible this answer: "Cast your burden on the Lord and He will sustain you. HE WILL NEVER ~ ALLOW ~ the righteous to be
moved (made to slip, fall, or fail)." It is incumbent upon us to ~ Believe That.

Jesus said in Mark 9:23 that "All things are possible to him who believes."

Cast Your Cares

Looking ~ again ~ at our Creator's Book of Life and Love ~ which is traditionally referred
to as the Bible ~ we find these words in verse seven of the Fifth Chapter of the New
Testament Book of First Peter in The Amplified ~ "Casting the whole of your care ON HIM, for He
cares for you
affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

So ~ these are some of the reasons that we are able live our lives ~ untroubled by
fear of harm.
"There is a beautiful old gospel hymn that goes like this: "We have come this far by faith ~~ leaning on The Lord ~ TRUSTING ~ in His Holy Word ~ He never failed me yet."

Don't Be Careless Or Unwise

It's good to be care free ~ but not careless. Do not lose sight of the need ~ in many ~ if
not most ~ areas of the world apparently ~ to lock your vehicle when you go
shopping
~ or even when you go to church.

In addition ~ be mindful of the fact that ~ it does not mean that you are fearful or troubled
if you choose to activate and monitor your home alarm system.

Thanks Helen for spreading faith. For me I take a simple view - give more than take so that others benefit through my life. We can still give when we are incapacitated and not only monetarily. Spreading the cheer comes free. I listen to my inner voice and conscience and when in doubt - do unto others as you would have them do unto you - siva
