Don’t Be Afraid

The forecast is not good.

The warning is for world-wide famine. Food shortages are already obvious in supermarkets. Products just aren’t there anymore. It is unsettling, and the rising costs of what is there can be rather stressful.

However, we must not live in fear. Be aware. Pray. Economize. Apply godly wisdom to your choices. Just don’t be afraid. God is able to keep us in any storm, Christian. He can provide manna and quail from Heaven and multiply a few fish and loaves to feed thousands! We can trust Him.

Personally, I am not stockpiling. I always store a little extra, but that’s because I grew up in Earthquake Country where having a two-week supply of food and water is drilled into you. However, I’m not trying to survive on this earth. I live, because God wills it. If He wills it, He will provide what I need. My life is in God’s hands. He is God of all creation, and He created me to depend on Him.

“God helps those who help themselves” is not in the Bible. It is not holy writ. It is a dumb saying full of demonic falsehoods. That is not God’s promise to me in His Word. God’s promise to His children is…

“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

Here’s the key – because every promise of God has a key to unlock it – the key is being in God’s will.

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” 1 John 5:14-15

You may ask, “Well, how can I know God’s will?” It starts with obedience to His Word. Has you surrender your will to His, you will find yourself in the center of God’s will for you. That is our place of safety and victory. Allow no compromise in your life. Measure yourself by His Word and ask the Holy Spirit to do whatever it takes. When He prompts you to surrender, obey Him.

The days ahead may be very challenging, but if we learn to walk by faith and not fear we will be safe and secure.

  1. I know what you mean, yes, do not fear. Amen sister.

    Thanking God for the Holy Spirit that directs us who follow the Lord who have given their lives to the Lord fully. : ) I just listen to that Still Small Voice and buy what He tells me to buy and store. We must remember that Noah was a conspiracy theorist but then it rained…

    I hear your heart and totally understand what you are saying. May everyone cling to the Lord and hear that Still Small Voice.

    I appreciate you! God bless you Caroline (A hugs) : ).

  2. Hi, Amelia. It is always so nice to see your name pop-up. Thank you for your comment. I say, “Amen!” to every word. I hope my post didn’t leave anyone thinking they shouldn’t do as much preparing as they want or can do. I was thinking more about people who may be struggling to put food on the table now, or are being controlled by a fear of starvation. I can’t imagine facing the days ahead without the Lord.

    God bless you, Sister!❤️
