This morning I was going over some things I was learning and reading from this past week. One of them being again, the reverential fear of the Lord God and working out our salvation with fear and trembling. I was also thinking of how staying in peace is so important.
The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.Psalm 34:7
A small excerpt below, which is from a newsletter I’m subscribed to:
As I said at the start, there are many voices on the web sharing this or that dream, this or that word, some perhaps from the Lord some perhaps from emotional and religious filters mixed with last night’s leftovers. But know that words from God may be for the time of the Tribulation, and not our time. Stay away from wild speculations – do not feed on them. Contemplate, wonder, think about, but establish boundaries for yourself for these things do not form our Christian walk. What is Jesus asking you to do today? That is your focus, not on what may be in the future of the world.
Look at the peace in your spirit. It is there. Lay aside your emotions and guard peace. Let the peace ‘hem in’ your mind, emotions, and thoughts. Stay in that peace. Discipline yourself to stay away from web sites and speakers that would violate that peace – you may wonder in your mind what is true and how it may happen – but don’t let that wondering block the peace in your spirit.
As I said before, even words warning of things to come, when by the Spirit, are enveloped in peace for God’s Kingdom is not threatened by the workings of man or nature. God is not in fear and confusion, you’ll find Him in peace.
Fenn. J. (2020, January 25). What will the Tribulation be like? #2, Retrieved from churchwithoutwallsinternational.org newsletter.
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.Philippians 2:10-12
