Day 8: Do Not Let


DO NOT LET~

those three WORDS

that are terrifying at times,

because they demand a CHANGE.

For when you DO what they SAY,

you are the one who who will

CHANGE.

And oh how you will CHANGE,

as your HEART will CHANGE,

because those three WORDS

are not ordinary

WORDS

as they are spoken

by

JESUS~

"DO NOT LET

your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly).

BELIEVE [confidently] in GOD and trust in HIM,

[have faith, hold on to it,

rely on it, keep going and]

BELIEVE also in ME"

(John 14:1).

The most powerful

THREE WORDS,

yet the most hard to

DO,

because it takes

FAITH

to move beyond

FEELING TROUBLED

FEELING FEARFUL

FEELING COWARDLINESS,

as these are all

REAL FEELINGS.

But FAITH takes you beyond what you

see and feel and hear with your physical senses,

to a place of

BELIEVING

and

TRUSTING

the

WORDS

of

the ONE who you LOVE

with ALL your HEART & ALL your MIND

&

ALL your SOUL,

so that

you not only read the

WORDS

but you

DO what they say~

"DO NOT merely listen to the word,

and so deceive yourselves.

DO what it says"*

And here is another DO NOT

that we are commanded to DO NOT DO.

To not just LISTEN to the WORD

but

DO what it says.

HIS WORD is an INVITATION

that demands a

YES I will

or NO I won't.

Since GOD is a gentleman

as is HIS SON,

we have been gifted FREE WILL to CHOOSE.

So what if your answer is NO?

"Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like"*

A NO will give you a

TROUBLED

FEARFUL

COWARDLY HEART.

Hmm.

But if you say YES?

"But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard,

but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do"

*(James 1:22-25),

Oh how you will be so

BLESSED

because a

TROUBLED HEART

will be overtaken

by

HIS PEACE

HIS JOY

HIS HOPE

when you

"DO NOT LET"

and

"Believe [confidently] in GOD and trust in HIM,

[have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and]

believe also in ME".

I love GOD's WORD

as HIS WORD never leaves you at a standstill,

striving to figure out what you need to do or do not do,

as HE spells it out

WORD by WORD

so that we experience

THE ABUNDANT LIFE in the HERE & NOW,

because HIS WORD is for the HERE & NOW.

Therefore,

will you join me and

DO NOT LET your HEARTS BE TROUBLED

and

"BELIEVE"

(listen to the song below)
