Fear That Disables

25 Oct

God’s Word:  Proverbs 29

God’s Message to Me:

“The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that.”  As you read My Word, pray for My guidance, and proceed to follow My leading—other will mock you.  That is because I deal with each person individually. Others will not understand you because I did not reveal your plans to them.

My wisdom is given to the one who follows the path I have laid out for them.  Many times people are so fearful of what others will think or say that they won’t even start down the path.  I don’t give out tomorrow’s guidance today.  As you put one foot in front of the other and proceed down the path—you will receive My guidance.

Do not fret!  Look to My Word for guidance and proceed through life as I lead you.  I will be with you wherever you go!  All things work together for good to those who love me and are called according to My purposes.  Do not fret about what others will say but about how you will feel if you fail to follow My leading.  Fear that disables is Satan’s way of putting a road-block in following My path.

God’s Question to Me:  What have you put off doing because of this disabling fear?

God’s Promise to Me:   If you can’t see what I am doing, you’ll  stumble all over yourself; but when you attend to what I reveal, you are most blessed.

My Song to God:           Trust and Obey    by John H Sammis  1887

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Refrain:
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

 
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

Refrain:
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

 
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.

Refrain:
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

 
But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

Refrain:
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

 
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.

Refrain:
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
