God, Our Ever-Present Help – Part 2

God, Our Ever-Present Help – Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We began an interesting topic some days back – understanding God as our ever-present help. And we are exploring Psalms 46:1-3. I told you I was going to take my time to explain the words in the scripture and help you understand what the bible was saying.

We started with “God is our refuge”

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. – Ps 46:1-3 NIV

The next phrase we will be considering says

God is our strength

The word strength can be defined as the quality or state of being strong. This simply means in God, there can never be any form of weakness.

This scripture comes to mind whenever you feel weak, inadequate, incapable, or inefficient. All you need to do at such times is to roll out this scripture over and over again until you literarily feel strength first on your inside, then in the physical.

See another verse of the bible that you can draw strength from.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. – Philippians 4:13

Dear children, do not fret or feel weakened. The God you serve has promised to be a source of strength to you.

May I also add that the word strength can also mean a source of mental or emotional support. This implies God can be your source of support whenever you feel drained emotionally.

Face your day with this kind of confidence and you will see God come through for you.

Prayer:
Dear Father, help me to always trust in your word. Amen.

Action point:
Dedicate time to meditate on God’s word

Declaration:
God is my refuge and strength, my ever-present help in trouble.

Dealing With The Spirit Of Fear In Children

Dealing With The Spirit Of Fear In Children

Reading Time: 2 minutes

All through the Scripture we see that the spirit of fear is not to be allowed to have a place in our lives. Dear children, say no to fear.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 (ESV)

The first thing in that passage says we should be strong and courageous. Strength is needed to do anything in life. Fear is a tool of the devil to weaken our resolve to doing anything.

The Lord is always with us wherever we go. We should not be frightened or afraid of any harm.

Yes, there will be instances where we might be overwhelmed, but the assurance from God’s word is enough to bring us out and place us on top. 

We have the assurance of protection from God himself, saying he is with us. It is this assurance that we need to succeed in life.

This means we can do anything because God is with us.

What are those dreams and goals in your heart? What are those aspirations in your heart?

You can do it, only fear not.

As parents, we can build confidence in our children with this scripture.

Furthermore, God tells us he has no plans to leave nor forsake us.

We should train our children to put their trust and hope in God, not in man.

Action Plan:
What are the things that make you scared? List them. You can talk to your parents about them too.

Prayer:
Lord, help me to trust you. Take away the spirit of fear in me and build my confidence in you. Amen

Declaration:
My children know no fear because the Lord is with them always. They are not afraid to do new things because they have assurance from God.

Be Courageous Little Ones

Be Courageous Little Ones

Reading Time: 2 minutes

You must learn to be courageous little ones. Sometimes you might feel afraid to do something because you are afraid of failing or being mocked, but the verse below tells you to do otherwise.

Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Fear is part of life, but it is not supposed to stop us from doing what we are supposed to do. Especially as children of God. So be courageous little ones!

God doesn’t want us to be afraid of anything because, according to the verse above, He is with us all the way.

This was what he told Joshua when the children of Israel were going out to tackle an enemy. He told them not to be afraid. They believed Him and went out to battle. Guess what happened? They came back victorious. This teaches us courage; so I say again ‘be courageous little ones.’

Joshua 1:7-9 (ESV) Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Be courageous little ones. May the Lord give you victory and eliminate every spirit of fear in you. Amen.

Prayer:
Lord, give me a spirit that is bold and courageous in You. Help me conquer mountains in Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Action plan:
Bring every one of your fears before God. Ask Him to show you what to do and obey His instructions.

Declaration:
I am courageous. I know no fear.
