I Know My God Can Do It!

God is so good, he's so good to me! We had a bit of a scare yesterday . . . we were approved for our loan on the house, but with the financial situation, the bank was out of money. Whoa - we get married in 10 days! They had said it might be two weeks - meanwhile the real estate company would not hold the house - if someone came along with ready money, bam, it was gone.

Immediately feelings of fear, doubt and depression came on me. That is Satan's arsenal. If he can get you to doubt yourself, or doubt God, he wins. He especially likes to get you doubting God - divide and conquer technique.

I just began to pray. I put everything in my Father's strong, capable hands. You see, my God is a miracle worker. Has been for over 2000 years. I knew that whatever his will was, that was what would happen. I had a deep-seated peace about the whole thing.

This afternoon, my miracle came. My Honey called and we got it. We close Friday. God came thru! May not seem like a miracle to some folks, but it is to me. With the world financial situation, anything could have happened.

II Timothy Chapter 1
7: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Psalms Chapter 15
4: In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

Psalms Chapter 27
1: The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalms chapter 34
4: I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
7: The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

I John Chapter 4
18: There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Mark Chapter 4
40: And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

If Satan tries to smite you with fear, just pray the promises that I have given you above. They will give you strength and faith!
