I was so intrigued when I learned that “Fear Not” was in the Bible 365 times. I thought, “Wow! How awesome is that!”

 

After a few months of thinking about this from time to time, I had a great idea to do a printable using all 365 scripture references that deal with “fear not”. I went to my concordance to get the scripture references, and do you know what I found?

  • The phrase in the intended context is only used 80+ times
  • The phrase “fear not” in used in other contexts, but you wouldn’t want them to apply to you
  • Other word pairings that would be equal to “fear not” (“do not be afraid”, “do not fear”, “be not afraid”) is used 30+ times

While it’s a great idea to think that God comforted us with “Fear not” 365 times, it’s simply just not true.

Here is a list of all of the scriptures that I used. The first section is “Fear Not”. Then it starts over with “be not afraid”, etc. references.

  • After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying , Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

  • And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

  • Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed ; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.

Transcript

I want you to think about your own life. Where is God calling you to do something hard? Where is God calling you to something out of the comfortable way you’d like to live life? Who are hard people God has put you near? What are hard things God is calling you to do? Where are you struggling to do the hard things God is calling you to do—hard things with your money that doesn’t actually belong to you; hard things with your time that doesn’t actually belong to you; hard things with the people around you that aren’t actually possessions for your happiness? What hard thing is God calling you to? And how are you responding to hard call of God?

Let’s be honest. Can I be honest with you? I don’t know why I’m asking permission, I’m going to be. You’re Christianity is not defined by Sunday morning when you’re throwing your head back and singing some kind of worship song. That’s the easy call of God. That doesn’t define your Christianity at all. It never has. And you shouldn’t evaluate how close you are to God and how much you’ve surrendered to his plan because you can attend a service and get excited about great music and great teaching.

It’s Tuesday night when someone is bugging the stuff out of you, and God has chosen for you to live next to a person who in every way irritates you, that how much you’re surrendering to the call of God is made clear. Because God says you’re supposed to love your neighbor as yourself no matter what.

When God calls you to not treat your money as your own—and you don’t have much, and having a little money isn’t an excuse to not be generous and not be supportive of the plan of God—how are you responding to that hard call? When God chooses something to enter your experience that you would’ve never planned for yourself, something that’s hard and difficult, when the unexpected and unwanted and the unplanned enters your door: how do you respond? Do you question the goodness of God? Do you question his presence? Do you look over the fence and envy somebody’s life? Or do you say, “You’re Lord! You can lead me anywhere you want to leave me. My rest is not in my circumstances. My rest is in you.” How are you responding to the hard call of God?

I want to say to you, as I read Jonah, I’m more like this man than I’m unlike him. And it’s easy to look at Jonah and say, “I would’ve never run from God!” and be a runner every day of your life and you don’t know it. And I’m concerned that my self-righteousness will not allow me to get the message out of Jonah because the first thing I do is separate myself from him. I say, “No way Paul Tripp’s a Jonah! Look, I’m in ministry! I preach! I write books!” Yet I can sit in a moment where my wife hasn’t agreed with the glory of my stunning thinking and say nasty things to her. And at that moment, I’m a runner just like this man. The call of Jonah was hard.

Think about the message he was called to communicate. How would you like to go to an exceedingly evil city and the single message you’re supposed to communicate is judgment? How’s that for a happy, attractive job description? You just go, and you walk the streets of this evil city and you announce that there’s a God who’s about to mete out judgment on it? There’s nothing about this call that’s attractive.

And we’ll never get the best out of Jonah if we separate ourselves from this struggle. God’s going to call you to do hard things. And it’s in those moments when you have a measure of the degree of the surrender of your heart to God. Not in the easy moments. Not in those beautiful, warm, community worship moments. But in the moments when I’m facing thing I don’t want to face, and God is calling me to do what it’s not naturally for me to do. It’s not natural for me to uproot my life and go to people I have nothing in common with and speak a message that they don’t want to hear. Let’s not be too hard on Jonah. Jonah is in the Bible because he’s like us. Put your name there, and confess with me right now, that there’s probably evidence somewhere in your life, where you’re a runner.

Made To Live For

 

 

FROM HERE:  https://www.paultripp.com/content

What You Were Made To Live For

Why do little kids daydream about being a pilot or a princess?

Why do college students volunteer for charitable causes?

Why do sports fans lose their mind over small round ball?

Why do we keep records and keep trying to break them?

Why do we get hooked to fictional movies and scripted TV shows?

Why do we look back on life and wonder what could have been?

Because we all trying to live for something bigger.

This desire for transcendence – going beyond the ordinary range of human experience – is in us because God placed it there.

The Creator designed us to chase meaning and purpose. More significant than our physical body, he gave us eyes to cast visions, brains to innovate, and hearts to desire bigger and better.

But then sin entered the world and twisted our pursuit of more. We either stopped chasing it altogether, or we got it confused and started to pursue much less.

What were you and I originally intended to live for? Let’s go back to the beginning:

1. We Were Made To Live For God (Genesis 1:26)

Since we are created by God and in his likeness, the transcendent glory that every human being quests for, whether we recognize it or not, is not an element in creation. Our lives are designed to be shaped by our attachment to the Creator.

2. We Were Made To Live For Truth (Genesis 1:28, 2:16)

Immediately upon creating Adam and Eve, God spoke to them – something he didn’t do with anything else. God has hardwired us with communicative abilities to receive his revelation, glorious truths that shape everything we think, desire, and do.

3. We Were Made To Live For Community (Genesis 2:18)

We were made to need one another, and this community is meant to exist in a variety of forms: sibling, parent, spouse, neighbor, friend, teammate, co-worker, etc. This web of ongoing relationships requires us to live for more than just ourselves.

4. We Were Made To Live For Stewardship (Genesis 1:28)

God carefully constructed his world and then placed it in the hands of people. You and I are designed to be resident managers, caring for the wide variety of amazing things God has purposefully crafted to be reflectors of his glory.

Why does this matter today?/p>

It’s unlikely that God will call you to drop everything you’ve been doing and start something new.

Rather, he calls you every morning to attach yourself to him, to be guided by his truth, to immerse yourself in community, and to be a steward of the gifts he has given you.

All in the midst of what you are already doing.

God has placed you just where he wants you. And he wants you to be part of something big.

He wants you to live for the Kingdom of God, in the situations, locations, and relationships of your everyday life.

His powerful grace enables you to live for that glorious kingdom, right here, right now.

God bless

Relationships – THE WALL

Most people spend all their energy blaming other people for their relational problems.

 

 

Listen to this once a year…

170322_Building the Bridge to Forgiveness.mp3

http://www.focusonthefamily.com/media/daily-broadcast/building-the-bridge-to-forgiveness-pt1

Best-selling author Gary Chapman explains how listeners can work to heal broken relationships by taking personal responsibility and seeking forgiveness. (Part 1 of 2)

Part of the L.U.V.E. — A Five-step Communication Process for Conflict Resolution Series

  1. Listening is the First Step to Conflict Resolution in L.U.V.E.
  2. Understanding is the Second Step to Conflict Resolution in L.U.V.E.
  3. Validation is the Third Step to Conflict Resolution in L.U.V.E.
  4. Empathy is the Fourth Step to Conflict Resolution in L.U.V.E.
  5. Apology is the Fifth Step to Conflict Resolution in L.U.V.E.

Four parts of an apology

The process of a healing apology is made up of four simple statements. Consider how powerful these 12 words can be in helping reach the deepest level of intimacy:

“I was wrong.” These first three words acknowledge that your words or actions hurt your spouse, and they validate his or her pain.

“I am sorry.” These next three words go beyond confession and give you the opportunity to explain that you understand how much you hurt your spouse, and you feel terrible about it. The empathy allows you to feel the remorse necessary for the next statement.

“Please forgive me.” These words inform your spouse that you accept responsibility for your actions and that you want to see your relationship reconciled. You are not demanding anything; instead, you are inviting your spouse to forgive you and to restore the intimacy and connection that was broken. Requesting forgiveness also displays humility from the offender because you have to admit that you have been wrong and you are willing to make things right.

“I love you!” The final three words affirm your love and commitment to your spouse. They say that your love isn’t dependent on whether your spouse forgives you. Instead, you are saying that your love is unconditional and that your heart is fully open.

Conflicts, arguments and offenses are unavoidable, but the inability to forgive can become a person’s personal prison. To remain in a loving relationship, you must grasp the idea that forgiveness is essential.

How to tear the wall down:

  1. Identify your own failures!
    1. Start with prayer – Psalm 139:23-34
      1. Psalm 139:23-24English Standard Version (ESV)
        23 Search me, O God, and know my heart!
            Try me and know my thoughts![a]
        24 And see if there be any grievous way in me,
            and lead me in the way everlasting![b]
    2. List what God reveals to you, things like:  Where am I failing?  “be ye kind one to another”, “tender hearted” or harsh cold bitter cruel mean, “forgive one another”,   Promises made and never kept.
  2. Confess all the above list to God.  “If we confess our sinS,
    • 1 John 1:9    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    • Confess just means to AGREE.  To AGREE with God that our sins are wrong.   The opposite of confess is to present God with an excuse that the OTHER person did something first.    Do not let someone else’s bad behaviour be an excuse for me to behave badly.   Confess means to “ACCEPT GOD’s Forgiveness”.
  3. Get and maintain an Empty concience.  Confession to the other person.
    • Acts 24:16   16 So I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man.
    • Nothing is more important for mental health and spiritual health than having and maintaining (working on) a clear concience.

 

In you Lord my God I put my trust. My hope is in you all day long.

David saw something that king Saul could not see.  Hope in the lord.

24.24  Andy Stanley – David the Reluctant hero.   David_ The Reluctant Hero.mp3

See clearly.

Act confidently.

Walk humbly.

Recognize that we canNOT control outcomes.  There are too many variables that are outside my control.  Must lean the weight of my life on the Lord who does have control on all variables.

I have no control over all the variables that control outcomes.

In you Lord my God I put my trust.  My hope is in you all day long.

 

Psalm 25:5

Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior,
    and my hope is in you all day long.
