Fear Not You Have My Spirit (#59)

Haggai 2:5  “According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.”  (KJV)

image00

Some days, God seems far away.  Silent.  Prayers go unanswered.  Ever been there?  

This scripture reminds us that God keeps His promises.  What He says, He will do.  I AM promises us He will be with us.  If the LORD is with us, who or what have we to fear?  

Why is it we Israelite forget?  Why are we freaked out?  What leads me into doubt?  If I had the answer for this, other than “the devil made me do it,” I would be able to answer all the questions of this spinning blue ball.

Franklin D. Roosevelt is quoted as saying, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”  

Charles Stanley wrote, “Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt.  He is always (emphasis mine) there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He’s sufficient for all our needs.  When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life I found that my worrying stopped.”  He also says, “Basically, there are two paths you can walk:  faith or fear.  It is impossible to simultaneously trust God and not trust God.”

God is in a covenant with us.  This is an unbreakable promise.  Jesus sent His Holy Spirit:

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever–John 14:6

This is His promise.  I can TRUST.  

Treadin’ in warm water………..ahhhhhhhhhhh,

About Yvonne Jones

I am at heart, a LIFEguard: "big" sister, mama, grandmother, aunt, friend, swimming coach, lifeguard trainer, and registered nurse. I am in the business of alleviating fear through education and lots of hand holding. As a swimming instructor, I have taught people of all ages to overcome fear of the water and I marvel as fear gives way to fearlessness, as panic turns to pure joy, as tears dissolve into giggles of glee, and pennies retrieved from the bottom of the abyss become trophies. As a nurse, I have been privileged to walk up to Heaven's gate as patients and family are welcomed home, witnessed the miracle of birth, helped mend broken hearts, and cared for the elderly as they wait. Scriptures number one admonition is "fear not." Question is HOW??? The Word becomes our swimming instructor and can help us learn to "tread water til Jesus comes." Something my students often thought I was going to make them do! So welcome to my pool! Jump in the cool water. Let it refresh your soul and feel the unseen hands of the Master Lifeguard lift you up and out of the deep water. Who knows, you just might even walk on water!
