Don’t be afraid of what others say or what will spook up the nation. What this fear is doing to the mind and emotions of the nation – the fear it evokes – is not God’s doing at all.
Remove all fear from your mind. Don’t listen to those who go on and on. Guard your mind. Be careful what you hear and watch. Don’t waste your time. Instead, pray and come close to God, He has all that you need. He is saving and giving grace everywhere.
“There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casts out fear:
because fear has torment.
He that fears is not made perfect in love.“
Remember: Perfect love casts out fear. God does not want our minds to be in a constant state of torment and fear. Let God’s perfect love cast out your fear. Accept His love. Relax in His love. Live in His love. Act out His love to others, then you will not be afraid. Love has action. The more you act, the less you’ll be afraid. The more you sit and listen to the “what ifs” and a future that doesn’t include God, the more you will be afraid. The more you listen to words filled with fear, the bigger the fear becomes in your heart and mind. Have the courage and determination to set some mental and emotional boundaries.
You don’t know what to do? Then ask Him and He will tell you. Listen for His gentle voice. He will show you a need. Then be His hands, be His feet and be the biggest blessing you can be for Him each day. Watch as their eyes, full of fear, turn to you and are relieved. He longs to do this through you. It will change you and it will change the ones you are to help. Oh Christian, be Christ-like. Be like Him. Reread what He did. Then follow His example:
“Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”
You too have the power to heal and make well. Do what is in your power to do and leave fear behind. Trust and believe God is with you and He will refill what you have given out to others. You will receive more: more time, more resources, more energy. Seek God to know where the need is.
Shut your computer down. Turn off your TV. The time is now. Listen to worship music instead and He will fill your ears with words of praise. Good things will come! God is the sovereign ruler of this world. He controls ALL the leaders of the nations. This correction is for our benefit. A strong correction, but for our benefit.
Don’t listen to those who say this is the end of America. This is not true. We have a huge amount of people praying for their nation. People of all age groups have been praying for their nation. God has heard our prayers from on high. Our prayers have reached and filled the heavens. I imagine everywhere in heaven there is talk of these prayers.
“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Would God leave such a nation alone? No! He wouldn’t. He is faithful to answer these prayers from His followers. He loves their hearts! Hearts that love their nation enough to repent and pray for His restoration. He will restore, He IS restoring. He IS restoring a nation that has turned everything into a god. Idolatry. Anything and everything has taken their attention away from Him. But no more! This is about to change.
America is moving toward a new frontier, a new beginning. Great is not the goal. Survive will be the new goal. It has been all about shifting and restoring priorities. Those who were good with their money last season will thrive in this new season. Those who wanted “all the things” but could barely afford them will begin to lose many of their things. Everything will be different. Business will be different. It will all change because of the effects of this year, 2020.
America’s idols are falling one by one and no one is bothering to pick them back up again. They will lay there in ruins as a reminder of how important we once thought they were. They really aren’t that important now are they?
God has humbled America and brought us to our knees. We are no longer proud. We are now moldable and that is exactly what God intend to do, mold us into something new for a new purpose. The new purpose is to save lives – now and for eternity.
We will have a lot of new “firsts.” We will arise to a different level. The ones who did well financially last season will thrive even more during the new season. But the focus will be different. The focus must be different.
Soon many will hop from this place to the next place. It’s not going to be trudging along the path one step at a time, it’s going to be one big hop. This is why it’s important to be lean and light. Get rid of emotional clutter as well as physical weight and clutter in our homes. Friends, this is something we can do while we finish out this calendar year. Next year will bring new hope, prospects and challenges. We will need God next year too.
Chin up my friends. God has not forgotten us. He is about to answer us in a BIG way. Be encouraged! Trust in God and wait to see His answers.
This is a two part series. Please read the other part if you haven’t had a chance yet. America Wake Up!
These words of cheer, comfort and encouragement are taken from my own personal prayer journal writings. These serious words are what I heard God say to me during my prayer times.
Blessings to each of you.
