Is It Fear

It Is Written, Isaiah 54:14, " in righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you."
We all know what fear is. Each of us in our lifetime has more than likely experienced what we will call paralyzing fear. Paralyzing fear can actually cause you to be unable to make any kind of a move whether physical or mental.
Each of us has decisions to make every day. Sometimes we may ask the Holy Spirit to guide us, and sometimes we don't. Normally we hear a small voice in our hearts, telling us what to do. The typical person, usually starts to wonder, is what I feel the right answer?
As you keep asking yourself that question, you usually get more confused. You can confuse yourself so much, that you are totally unable to make a decision.
Two questions usually pop up. Are you afraid of the possible outcome of your decision, or as in the case of a Christian, are you afraid God will not answer? Either way, fear is not  good. When a non believer faces such a decision, common knowledge tells them to go with their "instinct" or the first thing they thought of, because delay will usually make things worse.
The normal believer, goes about it another way. He prays about it first. He asks the Holy Spirit for wisdom and guidance. He waits for an answer, and most of the times he gets it instantly. Next he makes sure that what he wants lines up with the Word of God. Does the answer line up? If it does, he ignores any other voice or feeling, and waits for the manifestation.
Depending on where you are in life, believer or unbeliever, it will either make sense, or be foolishness. If the believer really believes in his heart, he shall have what he asks. Jesus said so. Remember that fear or doubt will block prayers and answers. Prepare yourself with the Word of God to believe, and step out like the winner He has made you.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
Amen
