If you recognise Me as your Father, if you know Me as your Father, if you put your trust in Me, if you have My fear, if you do My will, then you have nothing or no one to fear. I will guide and guard you. I will fight every battle for you. I will hold you with My right hand and will never allow you to fall. You’re the apple of My eye and whoever touches you is in trouble. If you do your own part, if you obey My Law and observe all My Ordinances, you’re a winner. You’re a winner because no harm will befall you. Even if you open your door, no thief will knock on your door. I will shield and shelter you. I will protect you and everything you have. I Am the Almighty God. I Am the Great I Am That I Am. I Am the Great Protector. I Am the Mighty-Man-In-Battle. Nobody can battle with Me and win.
If My fear is in you, you shouldn’t be afraid of anybody else. How can you have the fear of two people at the same time? If you don’t have My fear, then you’re afraid of the other person. You’re even afraid of death because you don’t know where you’re going. Many of you live your life as you please. My fear is not in you. Therefore, you’re afraid anywhere you go. You don’t know what may happen to you at any time. If My fear is in you, why should you be afraid of death? After all, you’re coming to Me whenever you die. Why should you be afraid of death? You have unknown fear inside you all the time. A sinful heart is afraid anywhere he goes, but a holy heart has nothing to fear because he knows that no evil will befall him.
Many of you suspect everybody around you because your hands are dirty. If your hands are clean, why should you be afraid of your surroundings? You alone will speak against people. You alone will gossip about people. You alone will take what doesn’t belong to you. You’ll borrow from people and refuse to pay. You have all manner of sins in your hands. You alone will live as if there’s no tomorrow. Why won’t you be afraid? You’re afraid because your hands are dirty! You’re afraid because you trust no one. You don’t even trust yourself how much more another person. Your heart is full of all manner of cockroaches. You have skeletons in your cupboard.
Anyone who does business with Me shall never be put to shame. No matter how much he invests, he shall never run into a loss. Just keep your heart pure all the time, and My grace will carry you through. No matter how the Earth turns upside down, no evil will near your dwelling. If you know how to wash your hands, you’ll eat with Me.
Blessed is the man whose fear is in the Lord. He shall live securely everywhere he goes. No evil shall near his dwelling because he put his trust in his Creator. Nobody knows the Spirit of a man more than the One that created him. Nobody knows the secret of each heart more than the One that created it. If you have the fear of the Father in your heart, then you have nobody else to fear because He’ll stand by you all the way through.
The Bible says in the Book of Luke 12:4-7, “And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has the power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him! "Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
Many Christians are afraid of their surroundings because they don’t know what could happen. Some are afraid of their finances because their job could go at any time. Some have the fear of the unknown in their heart all the time. Whoever puts his trust in the Most High has nothing to fear. The Bible says in the book of Psalm 91:1 and 5, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”
As a Christian, nothing in this world should put fear in your heart because you have the Creator beside you. The worst thing that could happen to you is death. If you die, you have the hope of a better life, a better life where sorrow and hardship cannot dwell. All you need to do is to do the will of the Father. Strive to live a life that befits His Kingdom. I pray for you today that Jesus Christ, the Author of Peace, will give you peace in every area in Jesus name. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus name.
