HIS FAITHFUL PROMISES ARE YOUR ARMOR AND PROTECTION. DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THE TERRORS OF THE NIGHT, NOR THE ARROW THAT FLIES IN THE DAY. DO NOT DREAD THE DISEASE THAT STALKS IN DARKNESS, NOR THE DISASTER THAT STRIKES AT MIDDAY. THOUGH A THOUSAND FALL AT YOUR SIDE, THOUGH TEN THOUSAND ARE DYING AROUND YOU, THESE EVILS WILL NOT TOUCH YOU
Beautiful One, do not base your security on the way those around you live their lives. Instead, keep on uniting with Me, the Perfect Father, through My Son, Jesus Christ. Let your relationship with Me guard you against doom, despair, and disappointment. Stand firm. Endure. Overcome.
Persevere when you feel you are the only one standing on My Truth—My personal promises to you. Be tenacious. Keep on doing what is right. Be unyielding in your obedience to My Counsel. Never give up. Never give in. Never say never.
Though a thousand fall at your side, yielding to the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies, be unyielding in your submission to the Truth. Continue to trust Me, the Perfect Father, with all your heart, instead of relying on your own perturbing perceptions and circumstances. Keep on authorizing the Spirit of Truth to direct your life. Stop at nothing. Run on. Abide.
Though ten thousand are falling around you, walking in the darkness of shame, condemnation, rejection, and abandonment, continue to live as a child of the Light, rejoicing with Hope through the Power of the Holy Spirit, persevering in affliction, and praying without ceasing. Do not be afraid.
Let the Truth be your defense, so that the accuser’s lies do not throw you to the ground. Then, the father-of-lies will not kill your Peace, steal your Hope, and destroy your Joy. No, these evils will not touch you.
Are you deriving your truth from those around you: how they act…what they believe…what they say? How does this affect YOUR life?
There are many Truths that God wants to tell you that will not be in line with what others believe, but you need to meet Him in the places where others might not want to go. You need to believe the promises that others might not want to believe. You need to follow Him into the places where others might never have been.
PRAYER: Most High, show me Your ways. May I be willing to follow wherever You lead, even if nobody has ever been there before, lived that way before, or believed that way before.
Maintain an Awareness
It is very important that you understand that it is not so much what happened to you during your childhood that affected you the most, BUT WHAT YOU CAME TO BELIEVE ABOUT YOUR SELF, OTHERS, AND GOD, IN RESPONSE TO THE CIRCUMSTANCES (facts) of your childhood life.
