Bible Ballistics: BBs #44 Victory in Perilous Times
Continuing with our thoughts from Wednesday, with “perilous times” often comes fear. What do we do? First, we must remember that fear is simply an emotion—the question is do we control our emotions or do we allow them (fear) to control us.
2 Timothy 1:7, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
The God who saves us has given us ‘the spirit’ of ‘power’, ‘love’, and a ‘sound mind’, not ‘fear’. How do I live in light of this assurance? Well, as usual, let’s allow scripture to answer.
Romans 8:28-29a, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, ….”
Portions of Romans 8:37-39, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
So? Here’s our shot for the day. Remember, no matter the trial, or persecution, or discouragement,
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4
Keep yourself IN HIM,
because HE is IN YOU!!!
