Do not be afraid! by Richard Dahlstrom

You can’t go anywhere in the world these days without a reason to be afraid staring you in the face.   Here in Germany, people are worried about all the money they’re giving to other parts of Europe as an attempt to hold the economic EU together.  This is taking it’s toll here in a similar way that the fears of the fiscal cliff are taking their toll in America, especially as the clock ticks and we hear nothing other than how some elements of our political system are so entrenched in their ideolog … [Read more...]

Faith is the Destroyer of Fear by Robert Ricciardelli

We need to quit being afraid, and begin to step out of the boat and onto the water. Because no matter what it costs, the Kingdom of God coming through our life in the here and now is worth it, both for us and for all the people we touch. Fear will try to direct us away from the purposes of God. Faith allows for the Spirit of God to guide our every step as the Divine Navigator within us leads us from fear and into the promised land. There is nothing in this world that has defeated more people and … [Read more...]

Walking Right Past Fear Confidently by Robert Ricciardelli

You always have a choice on how you respond to fear. You can cave into it, struggle with it, accept it, reject it, or work around it. You always have a choice, a choice you can make consistently, or a choice that changes based on what you sense may be best for you in the moment. Fear can become habitual and it brings the fantasy of what might happen into our current reality. Unsupported fear is much like a hot air balloon. Once we grab hold of it, we are flung all over the place, terrified, out … [Read more...]

Faith Overcomes the Intrusion of Fear by Robert Ricciardelli

You cannot always control the external things in life, yet the internal things of your spirit are yours to control. It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them anyway. And why worry about the things you think you have control over anyways, as Spirit led people of faith? We must cease our participation in fear and worry as they have the ability to immobilize us and diminish the strength of our faith. I have yet to see fear be the … [Read more...]

Reject Worry and Let Your Faith Arise by Robert Ricciardelli

We know that worry can never add value to our lives, but not many understand this deeply enough to allow the love of God to free them from their habit of worrying. Worrying robs us of health and opportunity, and in fact worrying comes directly against the faith and free flowing manifestations of God through our lives. When we refuse to worry, we put our faith in God, and have more confidence in His love and power working for us than what could ever harm us. Choose to rest in your God and He will … [Read more...]

God Is With You Wherever You Go by Alan Smith

Josh 1:9: Yes, be bold and strong! Banish fear and doubt! For remember, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (TLB)What an incredible statement this is! Be bold and strong! Banish fear and doubt. This is the statement God spoke to Joshua after the death of Moses. God was calling Joshua to be bold and strong and to enter the promises of God. Evidently, Joshua was walking in fear and doubt: fear of all the problems that were before him; fear and doubt of the battles that were … [Read more...]

You Cannot Be Prepared to Die Without Truly Living by Robert Ricciardelli

We were created for life and will never be prepared to die until we have truly lived. People who experience life fully are the ones most able to die with the same passion in with which they have lived. Those who fear death the most are those who have not yet begun to live. Those who live in the realm of faith, hope, and love, live for eternity now. Today is another good day to live in the conscious presence of God, and in the reality of life in the Spirit. The haunts of anxiety and fear … [Read more...]
