Really? Now, after all these years, you're scared?
This darkness is the same darkness I was rescued from.
You were rescued, remember?
What if it gets my kids?
What if I get your kids?
What if you don't hear me when I pray?
Is that what you think, after all the answers, that's what you are afraid of?
Give me a sign.
Oy vey, always a sign.
Ok, I'll give you a sign. What do you want it to say?
See, I heard you.
I can do that.
God listens, and He answers. It is us who sometimes don't listen.ReplyDelete
Don't Be Afraid.....ReplyDelete
"Fear not," said Moses, "Just stand still
And watch what God can do!
I'll wave the rod of God and lo-
That sea will part for you."
"You'll walk across without a drop
And reach the other side,
But God will overflow your foe
Till every one has died!"
And so it was, at God's command,
God set His people free.
And every single child of God
Fled safely through the sea
Then God the enemy confused;
They panicked, turned around
And tried to flee the wrath of God
But every man was drowned.
But just an hour or two before,
Oh, how God's children cried.
And how they rued their circumstance
As though God's man had lied.
Until they heard a Word from God
As Moses stood and prayed,
And then he simply shared God's Word
Which was, "Do not be afraid,
Stand still, and see what God can do."
Then scales fell from their eyes;
Oh, like Elisha, could they see
How angels rimmed the skies.
And can not we when we, like they
Are paralyzed with fear
Not stop and hear the voice of God
Speak softly in our ear?
"Don't be afraid, my child, I'm here.
I'll part that sea for you.
Don't be afraid-just look at Me;
Just watch what I can do!"
So do not fear, my Christian friend,
For only time will tell
Of how the God of Israel
Delivered you as well
So, cease, now crying out in pain,
"Why God, this raging sea?"
It is to drown your captors
So God can set you free
Stop weeping, child, stop weeping,
No need to be dismayed.
Just stand still and look at God
And you won't be afraid!
Thank you so much for that, Willie.Delete
You are a burning bush in the wilderness.
Thank you Willie. Well said.Delete
That's perfect Willie!Delete
Thank you, Sir. This brought tears to my eyes.Delete
HE is faithful!!
There is an epidemic of fear out there...Just as you write, we tell the Father about it, He is merciful and will truly answer our prayers.ReplyDelete
Amen amen amen.Delete
Fear is such a powerful enemy in our lives. Sometimes it is hard to look past the present situation and find any peace. God bless you. xo DianaReplyDelete
Fear takes away our strength. It suffocates us. Chokes. Paralyzes.ReplyDelete
God comforts us in all our troubles.
Hugs and greetings.
We are always looking for signs, besides praying. And we usually get them!ReplyDelete
I guess fear is a very natural response in difficult situations, but God is faithful and we have no need to be afraid.ReplyDelete
Rather than fear I would say I'm really really tired.ReplyDelete
We all have fears sometimes, but God! I appreciate this post.ReplyDelete
Thanks, that was great. Something we can all relate to!ReplyDelete
