"for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should." Ephesians 6:20 NIV
Hello to all of you today. I don't know what the weather is like in your town, but here it feels like summer! September can be like August in the beginning. This month and the next can be some of the best days of the year.
Our Apostle Paul, is a fearless Ambassador, yet he feels the need to ask for prayer. We don't usually see him as someone who needed help defeating fear, but in reality all of us need help with this.
Today I was editing a chapter in my book about fear. It's no secret the enemy is the author of it. God hasn't given us fear, nor does He ever want it in our lives. It comes anyway.
How we deal with it makes all the difference. Fear can take any of us down. If the enemy can get our eyes off God and into this world we can be stung with fear and anxiety.
What can make us stronger? Remember your history with God. He has delivered us from fear, and lies many times. He will do it again! Why can I stand on this? God Word tells us he never changes.
He is the same today in our generation as He was in the times of Mary, Abraham, and David. We can clearly see God's hands on these chosen followers, so we can be sure He will do the same for us. We are His people in our generation! Say amen, and thank Him for it.
