1 John 5:14-15

And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.

Prayer Bible Verses from the Book of Psalms

Psalm 50:15

What do I mean?   Here’s the story:

A while back I was listening to some messages and I was challenged and inspired to start praying much more than I was.  So I did it. I began to start praying any number of hours from 3 to 7 hours a day. I did it for over 2 months…and a strange thing happened…I began to see the answers to my prayers during that time.   Sometimes the answers came the same day or the next day.  I was so Blessedf!  I  still am. But, I warn you…do not stop.ATHANKSGIVING1111

“Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, yes I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
COMMENT: Can you count the number of times in God’s Word where He warns us against fearing things? I believe God is hammering home this theme for our protection. Fear is contaminated faith and uses the same spiritual principle. What was it that Job said about his deplorable situation?: “For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me. (Job 3:25) Just as faith comes by hearing the Word of God, fear comes by hearing the word of the devil. Whenever the enemy of our soul comes at us with a proposition of fear, immediately replace it with a promise of God.*** I like the Amplified Bible‘s translation of the subject: “For God did not give us a spirit of craven, cringing fear, but He has given us a spirit of power and of love and a calm and well-balanced mind with discipline and self-control.” (2 timothy 1:7)
