5 This is what the LORD says:
“Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
who depends on flesh for his strength
and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
6 He will be like a bush in the wastelands;
he will not see prosperity when it comes.
He will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.
7 “But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
8 He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
The one week holiday passes by so fast..! I am starting school tomorrow again. *silent groans*
I learnt something about fear in this season of practicum teaching. There are times in life we know we are full of fear. But when we really think carefully about what are we fearful of, sometimes we do not know what is it that is causing us to be fearful of. Fear itself, can then be a lie.
I am fearful about going to school tomorrow and i can’t explain why. But I pray and i claim for peace right now in Jesus name. I was reminded just a few hours ago about asking for favour. A lot of times we want and need favour in our lives, our working place, with people around us and we get so worried and fearful when we know there isnt. But you know what? A lot of times these take place because we didnt ask for it. Let’s start asking our GENEROUS GOD for what we need.
Romans 8:32 “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”
Clearly, God has given us His most precious, His own son, and God says how is it that He will not graciously give us all things??? Somebody shout hallelujah!
I am going to claim favour and wisdom and creativity everyday of my life before i start my work. God says He will give us and so He will!
I inserted Jer 17:17-18 at the top to remind myself that in this season, for the next 7 weeks, i shall not even for once rely on my own strength, but constantly remember to trust in the Lord, putting my confidence in Him. I shall be a tree that is planted beside the waters, tapping on the everflowing stream. I shall not be fearful of the heat, and always be healthy and green, and no matter the season, i shall always bear fruit. I can only do all these by trusting in HIM. 🙂
God, be with me even as i abide in You. I know You will. 🙂
God has said in Hebrews 13:5-6
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.” 6So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?”
What can man do to me? 🙂 They can do everything to me..but i shall not be afraid for the Lord will be with me. Amen.
