Of What Are You Afraid?

Lord, my God, yes, You are my God. You know all things and all things are possible for You. Then I ask You to bump up my faith quotient. This disease needs to leave my body. The enemy really thinks he’s got me this time. What do You say Lord?

Jesus calls me to go with Him. Yes, Jesus I will go with You. Oh my. Thoughts are bouncing around my head. . . what I use to think. . . what now? “Quiet!” I command my mind. Let Jesus speak.

“Remember the garden where it was foggy and you “needed” to focus on the trail to not get tripped up?” Yes, Lord. “And what did I tell you to do?” You said to ‘focus on You, Jesus, and see the garden through Your eyes’.  (Yes, when I obeyed, I discovered others also making their way through the fog.) Jesus, the fog is mysterious and “other worldly”, but it’s also a hiding place for secrets~ unless I do focus on You and see life through Your eyes, I’ll miss a lot of life’s beauty and not see Your plans for my life.

Recently in the desert walk to the waterfall, You told me to allow You to plant the goal’s picture in my mind, not my own thoughts of the end and how it will work out. You said to trust in You. From blog:   “When I focus on You, I see others here too.” My eyes are off of my problems, myself, so more people become visible. I'm also walking without stumbling, like there're no more embedded dangers to trip me up. “Embedded dangers” are in the fog without Jesus.

[‘Trip me up’ are the same words I found in a prayer message today:
“Invariably, when we are praying about tomorrow or what is going to happen down the line, it is because God has a blessing in store for us and the devil wants to steal it away or “trip us up.”]

Life can get foggy. Dangers come from the reality of this world vs reality of the spirit world. A mist can hide one from the other, that is, truths of the spirit reality from the earthly realty. When I focus on You Jesus, I can distinguish the one and only truth.

Then in the ledge series as it began to get dark, I began to feel fear until I leaned into the rock wall and called upon You as my Rock. Then I realized you had caused the ledge to glow so I could see it in the dark. You, the light, will always extinguish the darkness when we depend upon You. I trust You to be my light in this present darkness.

Psalm 27:1-3 (NLV)
The Lord is my light and the One Who saves me. Whom should I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life. Of whom should I be afraid?
2 When sinful men, and all who hated me, came against me to destroy my flesh, they tripped and fell. 3 Even if an army gathers against me, my heart will not be afraid.
Even if war rises against me, I will be sure of You.

That night on the ledge, I learned to trust You even more. Standing on a high  ledge in the dark almost got me. Standing on a different ledge challenge is the same. On the one I could have just given up and fallen to my death, but I chose to call upon Jesus in trust. Is it any different in this new challenge? I can give up and let it take me; or I can trust in Jesus for healing and go forward trustingly into His plans for my life. Jesus You have been giving me lessons You knew I would need. I choose to move forward trusting You.

What fearful challenge are you facing? Trusting God is always the answer. Focus on Jesus, the Word.
