DropboxThere is a word that is surrounding me this morning -Fear!

The first verse that came to my heart is Psalms 112:7,

“He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”

The next verse that rose up is Isaiah 41:10,

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

I meditated on both of these verses for a few minutes and asked God to share with me what was going on. Do I need to prepare for something? Is Bill going to loose his job? Is something going to happen to Samantha?

With each thought, fear began to rise up.

I waited for God to speak and He did.   “Cherie, there is nothing for your fear, worry, or be concerned about. This came directly from your enemy to distract you and cause you to walk in fear. Leave it where it is and continue your day.”

By nature, I almost picked that thing up.

How often do we walk in fear over something that never even existed? A thought that was planted by our enemy to distract and divert us from the task God has before us -wasting so much time, energy, and emotion.

So this morning I did something that I love to do most days. I danced with my Savior. I shared with him how much I love him and how much he means to me. We danced. Just the two of us, here in my office. I worshiped Him and proclaimed His name out load and focused my thoughts on my Savior instead of the enemy and fear!

I think so much clearer when I focus on God and His Love for me verses satan and his ugly hate. After all, God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory!

Nothing is going to get to me or silence me as long as I stay focused on Jesus.

Have you had this experience recently? What did you do to win the battle? I would love to hear your thoughts and learn from you.

Focusing on Jesus,
