Soaring 4 -Him
So, here I am snuggled on my plane, ready to take off from good ole Detroit Metro Airport to North Carolina as part of the administrative team for Serious Writer at the North Carolina Christian Writers Conference.
“Oh, no, fog!” I mumbled as I looked out the tiny window to my right. There I go again as my mind wanders and I begin to allow fear to sneak in. This time I speak with authority, “No! No fear, you will not have authority over me today.”
If God is for me, who can be against me? As I look at the way fear begins to control us, I can see it from a whole new perspective. When fear tries to knock at our door, it comes to destroy the peace of God that He so desires.
As I glance ahead, I see this royal blue curtain kinda swirled and off and to the side. It’s the curtain that separates the first and second class passengers, such as I 🙂
Why is it not down? I don’t know for sure, but I wonder. What I do know is that when it is, there is a separation between us.
My mind travels back to that fear. If I allow it in, it’s like pulling down that curtain. Pulling down my access to the Father, and to the name above all names, to Jesus.
When fear has its way, my access to the Lord is hindered. My focus is geared about me and not about Him and all the promises He desires.
You see, God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind. Even if I need to repeat this to myself over and over, it’s okay. Sometimes repetition is the greatest handle we have.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and a strong mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 NIV
So may I ask, what are you fearing today? Maybe it’s not flying twenty thousand feet above ground, but whatever it is, I guarantee you, the Father God will be in it with you when you call upon Him and allow Him to fill you with His peace.
I pray for you today, that through Him, and the power of the Holy Spirit that you too will discover that fear is just a weapon that the enemy uses to keep you from accessing the peace, the joy and the love of your eternal Father.
Well, gotta go. Wheels are down and off to another writers conference 4 Him…
Blessings to you, from del @ Pen4TheLord.com
PS — Actually, this was from Thursday morning — I am already back. We did not have ample internet to post before, but thought it was still worth the sharing 🙂
