FEAR NOT – GOD'S GOT YOUR BACK

Daniel 10:19, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong.”
As a supporter, I received the “God Is Faithful” promise calendar for 2014, from World Challenge, Inc. , and read the June article, “Removal of Fear” by David Wilkerson. “Show me a Christian who refuses to acknowledge his sin – who says, 'My hands are clean' – and I will show you someone with a false piety. Such a person puts on a big smile, has a confident walk and boasts that all is well. But it's all a facade! The Bible makes it clear that if anyone hides his sin, he will not prosper. God lifts His Spirit from him and his unrepentant heart is full of fear and restlessness!”, said Wilkerson.
We live in a World that is often filled with fear due to the many trials and tribulations we face and endure. We learn how Daniel, who was troubled with fear (Daniel 10), sought God, chastened his self, leaning to purify any error or fault. Mourned three weeks, eating no pleasant bread, flesh, or the drinking of wine (vr. 2-3). God gave Daniel a vision confirming he was not to fear, to be in peace, that there was Angelic help fighting on his behalf against the enemy ( vr. 13,20, 21). Bottom line? God has our back when we seek to live for Him. Wilkerson urges readers to seek repentance, "Beloved, let God examine your heart; ask the Holy Spirit to reveal everything you have said or done that is grievous to Him. Think of anyone you have slandered or gossiped about, and admit how sinful it was. Go to that person and seek forgiveness." God is faithful to help His children remain strong and be at peace when we seek to do His will, and not our own.
