Have I Not Commanded You?
Have I not commanded you not to fear? Have I not commanded you to not doubt Me, or to let things cause you to worry and question My leading you? Why then do I see you striving to work things out and to figure things out still? I do not want you to resist My Spirit who is leading you everyday. Do not take your eyes off of Me. I have told you that I know what I am doing, yet you continue to look around and judge things by what you see. You cannot do this, and walk in harmony with Me. What you see is not truly what is to remain, and what is at work is around you not within your ability to comprehend at this time. I am doing a very deep surgical work around you that requires your full attention upon Me. I want you to obey Me, and to trust Me completely, and allow Me to finish what I have begun.
You shall not fear any earthly news that comes to your ears. You shall not fear any man that speaks contrary to that which I have spoken to you to do, or to be. You shall not listen to anyone that contradicts what is written in My Word. You shall not walk with mockers, or scoffers, or unbelievers. If you listen to their voices, and take your eyes off of Me, then they will lead you astray entirely. This cannot be! What have I commanded you? I am a Covenant Keeping God, and I never forsake My Children that are obedient to Me. What will you have Me be, your friend and Lord, or your enemy? Those who rebel against Me and who will not walk in My Commandments are My enemy. I will have a People that love Me entirely, that fear My Name, and that desire to walk with Me fully.
I am at work, testing and trying every heart, and measuring their faith in Me, and I am working to bring them closer to Me. I am building My House, and it will be filled with the ones that truly believe with all of their hearts, with all of their minds, and with all of their strength. I will have a House full of Living Stones, that are wholly given to Me. So, give yourself completely to Me, and to My Will for your life. I never fail, nor do I ever lie. I am Faithful and I always keep My Promises. I will bring you through each step of the way, if you will let Me have My full way, and if you will wholeheartedly obey everything I say. Rise up in faith, Children, and see Me for who I am! I am the Great and Mighty God, the I AM!
I am here to deliver you from every fear, from every trial, from every weight and chain, and from all sources of pain. Will you embrace Me in this hour, or will you struggle on in your attempts to control the power? Are you in control of your destiny, or am I? Believe in Me, and know that I am more than able to lead you, and to cause you to walk in liberty, in peace, and in the full Knowledge of Me. I want you to be an instrument of faith for Me. I want you to strengthen your brothers. I want you to build up My People. I want you to show them who I am in your midst. It is time that My Name and My Glory be seen through your obedience and faith in Me. When people look at you, do they see you and your fears and struggles or do they see Me? Have faith in Me and you shall see My Glory all around you, even for eternity.
Joshua 1:7 Only be strong (vigorous) and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
Deuteronomy 7:21 You shall not be in dread of them, for the LORD your God is in your midst, a great and awesome God.
Deuteronomy 10:17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe.
Deuteronomy 31:8 It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed."
Luke 8:50 But Jesus, on hearing this, answered him, Do not be seized with alarm or struck with fear; simply believe [ in Me as able to do this], and she shall be made well.
Nehemiah 1:5 And I said, "O LORD God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,
Numbers 14:14 They have heard that you, O LORD, are in the midst of this people. For you, O LORD, are seen face to face, and your cloud stands over them and you go before them, in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night.
John 16:8 And when He comes, He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment: 9About sin, because they do not believe in Me [trust in, rely on, and adhere to Me];
1 John 3:22 and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. 23 And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 24 Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.
