WHAT I HAVE LEARNT, A PERSOBAL TESTIMONY
In dealing with my fears, I have learnt, first, to deal with my feelings - How I feel? And by faith take God at His word.
Sometimes I'm gripped with fears, especially, fears of uncertainties. Fears of the unknown.
Yet I can testify to the glory of God that except that I remain human and vulnerable, I shouldn't be entertaining fears any more, even in uncertain circumstances. This is because none of such fears in the past, ever came to pass as feared.
Indeed almost none of those things I feared ever happened.
The torment of fear is real and it is of the devil.
Once in awhile, I'm still vulnerable and could be downhearted. And sometimes it could be overwhelming. And sometimes, humanly speaking, for good reasons.
I have also learnt that when things do not turn out the way they are planned, naturally, I'm disappointed.
Yet, in my daily walk with the Lord, I have no reasons why I cannot always take God at His word in accordance to His Will. His will, also, has always given me peace.
In quietness is my strength.
Again and again, the Lord is always faithful.
In dealing with my fears I have learnt, first, to deal with my feelings.
I have learnt to separate my feelings from my faith. Faith is not about how I feel. Faith is taking God at His word.
TAKING GOD AT HIS WORD BY FAITH
Every great man and woman of Faith, as recorded in the book of Hebrews eleven, were all people who simply took God at His Word by faith and willingly submited to His Will.
From Noah, Abraham, Sarah and many others, each one of them had simply learnt to take God at His Word by faith.
They were all vulnerable human beings but men and women of Faith.
I have also learnt to know that God's Word and His Will are inseparable.
I have learnt to say and sing "Lord, Thy Will be done" while standing on His Word, while standing on His promises, while standing in His will.
How do I feel? My feelings. My fears!
I have learnt to separate my feelings from my fears. Fears is about how I feel, real and unreal.
I have learnt to separate my feelings from my fears. I have also learnt that fears is really about how I feel.
Fear is a feeling of torment. It comes from the enemy, the devil. The father of all lies.
I have learnt by Faith to trust God like a child to his father, helpless but trusting and believing. Standing on His Word. Standing on His promises. Learning to accept His will for all circumstances.
God is Faithful. He is ever Faithful.
In dealing with my fears, I have learnt first to deal with my feelings. I have learnt to let God be in control of how I feel.
I have learnt to put my faith above how I feel.
A personal testimony.
