“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” –St. John 4:24

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness…” –Isaiah 41:10
Often, we face situations when fear and doubt try to flood into our hearts and mind to create panic and despair. In those times we should remember that many years ago it was written in the word that we should fear not, remain calm and know that God is with us. And whether you acknowledge God as God… or some source of your inner power and strength; know that He is there and is always willing and able to help—if you allow it. When you do, you will see that you have more ability than you ever imagined. And, after you receive Him, be thankful and glad.
“Judge not , that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you…again“. ~Matthew 7:1-2

[ Sometimes when faced with adversity, we want to rush. Rush to come up with an answer; rush to solve the problem… and almost panic to be resolved of the situation! What Psalm 46:10 is actually telling us to do is– get quiet; look and listen closely. In that quietness be confident that you will be victorious. Patiently wait for the right answer and listen closely to the calm voice of God to direct you. Yes, it is hard–but you can do it.]
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea…” –Psalm 46:1-2
[We should always remember that no matter what it looks or seems like–we should not fear. Take a deep breath and believe that you will be victorious and that God –is.]
