BRING ME ALL YOUR FEELINGS, even the ones you wish you didn’t have. Fear and anxiety still plague you. Feelings
per se are not sinful, but they can be temptations to sin. Blazing missiles of fear fly at you day and night:
these attacks from the evil one come at your relentlessly. Use your shield of faith to extinguish those
flaming arrows. Affirm your trust in Me, regardless of how you feel. If you persist, your feelings will
eventually fall in line with your faith.
Do not hide from your fear or pretend it isn’t there. Anxiety that you hide in the recesses
of your heart will give birth to fear of fear: a monstrous stepchild. Bring your anxieties out into the Light of My
Presence, where we can deal with them together. Concentrate on trusting Me, and
fearfulness will gradually lose its foothold within you.
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is
light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk
in darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light , we fellowship with one another
and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.
1 John 1:5
Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The
LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; He has become
my salvation. Isaiah 12:4
