TODAY’S MEDITATION – Why is it that what you fear finally happens to you? (Psalm 50:15)

Very often, the fears we have inside of us eventually materialize in our lives, and we do not really understand how and why this is possible. Yet the answer is found in the Word of God. My brother, my sister, you must learn to master your fears and above all not to let what you fear get the better of you. You see, when Job found himself in the midst of his trials (the loss of his possessions, the death of his children, illness, etc…), that is the time he also realized that “What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.”(Job 3:25). That is why sometimes, in your walk with God, when a little something happens to you, once you start fearing it, it worsens instead of going away, despite our prayers to the Lord. To understand this, you must understand what God expects of you: from Genesis to Revelation, He always asked His people not to be afraid… also know that whenever you get scared or when fear wins over you you are in disobedience, because of your lack of confidence in the God Almighty. Look at what happened to the spies sent by Moses to explore the Promised Land. To the ten who returned with fear and spread it to the others who also started being afraid, God said “I have heard the complaints of these grumbling Israelites. So tell them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Lord, I will do to you the very thing I heard you say” (Numbers 14:27-28). This is the problem my friend: what does your heart grumble in front of fear? What does your mouth declare because of fear? Know that the living God hears them! So, if you really want Him to act with His power to protect you, to protect you from what you fear, stop whispering in your heart or settling sickness in your life… stop whispering or building a wall that locks you up within your problems… instead, trust your God who says, “call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me” (Psalm 50:15). Yes, our Lord expects you to show Him your trust in Him is stronger than your fear of what the devil can do in your life, because unfortunately, the devil often succeeds in distracting us by getting our attention away from Jesus the only one who can really keep us safe in His dwelling in the day of trouble, hide us in the shelter of his sacred tent and set us high upon a rock (Psalm 27:5). Today, pray that the Lord helps you set your eyes on Him, not on your situation, and change the language of your heart and your mouth by submitting it to the Word of God, so that it can produce fruit in your life. Stay blessed Jesus’ name. [facebook] [retweet]
