I was flipping through channels looking for a good movie to watch when I came across The Ghost and Mr. Chicken. I was reminded that back in 1965 my friend and I went to the “walk in” downtown and watched that movie on the big screen. What a fun memory!
I am also reminded by the Lord that when we have the Holy Ghost we don’t have to be chicken about anything. We are valiant, strong, powerful Warriors of God. We go where everyone else fears to go. Even when we sit in darkness we aren’t afraid because we have the light in the closet of prayer as we know who hears us, who helps us and who is with us.
Oh beloved, fear not! This year may have started out with fearful moments. You may be struggling with high expectations and low visibility. It hasn’t been what you hoped for. Mistakes are made. Little issues have blown up into big storms. But you need to know that The Holy Spirit is with you always. He’s the guiding light out of your fears and into His truth. He never points to your sins, your mishaps, your worries. He always points to the Father and the Father’s Words are “fear not!” You can go through the troubles and into the light because you have experienced mercy and you walk in faith. Even if trouble is all around you, even if you have loved ones who are out of sight, you can still hold onto God’s unchanging truth that when you pray the atmosphere changes – the light comes on in their lives. There are huge mistakes that take a huge God to rectify, but you have a Giant Savior who came to heal, deliver, set free, forgive, renew and redeem everything and everyone! Keep praying, keep shining the Light, keep seeking God’s face and keep expecting the turnaround! Just when you think the darkness of sorrow is completely shrouding your life you will see answers pour forth like a beacon of Hope!
God loves you and He’s for you! When you mess up, when you do right, when you falter, when you stand strong – there’s never a time God doesn’t love you and won’t help you. Bless the Lord for His help, praise the Lord for His answers and worship the Lord for His on time rescues as you live in the Light of His Glory & Grace!
John 8:12 Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You!
Psalm 90:14 O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
