DON’T LOOK BACK – IT IS ALL UP TO YOU
You’re afraid today because you have your eyes glued to the wrong place. You are being ruled by what has been. Think about it. Pinpoint your own fears. When did you first experience them? In childhood? After an auto accident? When your parents were divorced? The first time a door was slammed in your face? Whatever it was, that incident (or incidents) was a point of entry for Satan to plant seeds of guilt and fear in your old nature, and you got stuck there. 8 And the Lord, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. Deut. 31:8. You began to talk yourself into believing that all of the pain and fears of the past were still real. You kept them alive through your self-talk. Make no mistake. Words are powerful. Even the silent words that you “speak” in conversations with yourself have a dramatic effect on your entire being. Through your self-talk you can literally talk yourself into cooperating with the spirit of fear, and remain in the bondage to it. 20 A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:20-21.
All fears depend on you looking back to something that happened to you in the past, even if it was only an hour ago. Jesus said…. 22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matthew 6:22. There is no way that any fear can hover in the dark recesses of your mind when your eye is single-mindedly set on your Lord and His Word.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
What you are really saying through all of this is, I really don’t believe I’m a new creation in Christ Jesus. I’m afraid to let go. I’m afraid to fully surrender myself to the Lord. I’m afraid to trust Him to remold my life. I’ll just stay the way I am. STOP telling yourself these things! 10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isa. 41:10. The Word of God is COMMANDING you:
Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
REMINDER: DON’T LOOK BACK – IT IS ALL UP TO YOU!!! FEAR NOT FOR I AM WITH YOU SAITH THE LORD!!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you.
