Sierra Leoneans Worries, Fears and Doubts

In the Holy Scriptures; Mark 9:23 Jesus says, ‘Everything is possible for anyone who has faith. ‘Mark 10:27 Jesus says, ‘For all things are possible with God. In Worry, fear and doubt: What good can possibly come from these? Yet, we live with them every day. With my candid opinion, do you know that these can damage your mind, body, soul and strength? Do you know that it stops your walk with the Lord? Do you know that as long as worry, fear and doubt exist in your life, you cannot be connected to God? (You either trust Him or you don’t).

People have worries, fears and doubts about a lot of things: the Supreme Court Case, their job, politics, backbiting, night carpenters, death, Ebola virus, corruption, backstabbing, weather related items, health services, etc., etc. However, if there is something to worry about or fear or doubt, people will be living with it. Is this how God wants you to live your life? Of course not! Satan does it though the looks around you and inside you. Is your soul corrupted by this darkness? When you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, did you not put your life into His hands? If you did, then what are worries about? What do you fear, and what are your doubts? This is Satan’s world, and he wants you to live in his darkness. Look at the news for instance; we always hear negative perceptions on radio frequencies or Television news which they rarely show good things, why? The reason is that, they only want to bring you down and let you see Satan’s world not Gods. It’s all about darkness and these are just some of the rotten fruits that are constantly being born. It’s sad that people dwell in this realm, a realm of misery. Why doesn’t someone have news to show that nothing but the good things that happen every day? Probably, nobody would like to watch it or sponsor it.

Painstakingly, everything we do, affects other people around us. Most of the time we are not even aware of it or just don’t realize it. The way we affect people, is by our way of thinking, the things we say and how we act towards others. We send out positive or negative vibrations. These vibrations touch others in ways we see and don’t see. It’s one way of how love and hate works. Take for example when you smile at someone, if they accept your smile they’ll smile back and both of you feel the warmth of that smile. Now if someone was to be grumpy towards you, you could accept that bad vibe and be grumpy back or you could block it and overcome it with a smile and a prayer for them.

In other hand, worry, fear and doubts have a negative impact on your life and others. Fear will cause depression fueled by worry. Happiness and joy cannot exist in this situation. God’s Grace is all about Hope, Faith and Love. In the Holy Scripture in Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus said, ‘Come to Me, all you who labor and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes My yoke is easy and My burden light.’

In this scripture where does Jesus tell us to worry or have fear? Where does He tell us to doubt God? No, He tells us to come on to Him. Why? The answer is, we are overburdened by the way of the world. Our baggage is full of negative vibration (darkness). So, if we truly accepted Jesus into our hearts then why these things do exists? It seems that we started out with faith, did we lose it? Jesus’ burden is LIGHT. All positive, wonderful vibrations of light and this light is LOVE. The one thing we need to understand is that it’s one or the other: you believe in the Lord or you don’t. You can’t have faith in one minute and worries, fears, or doubts in the next minute.

Overwhelmingly, The Lord Jesus says in Matthew 7:24-27 ‘Everyone who listens to these words of Mine and ACTS on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on rock. Rain came down, floods rose, gale blew and hurled themselves against that house, and it did not fall: it was founded on rock. But everyone who listens to these words of Mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, flood rose, gales blew and struck that house, and it fell; and what a fall it had!’

The fall: In the Holy Books of Revelations 21:8 ‘But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, they shall have their portion in the pool burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Note the first two: the fearful and unbelieving. People, who know about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, but do nothing to prove they believe.

Dependably and without fail, knowledge is useless unless it is working. The same goes with as faith. When you first accepted Jesus and told everyone that you believe in Him and He is your personal SAVIOR, which is a form of faith with the works Jesus that someone is talking about. But it can’t stop there. If someone came up to you and said; show me your faith so I too might believe in Jesus Christ. What would you be able to show him? We need to take His annoyance and follow Him and He will show us how to fulfill the laws of righteousness and prove the promises of God. Labor for the fruits of the Holy Spirit and dress yourself in Light. If you think you can be idle and do it your way, then maybe one day Jesus will say to you, ‘It is not those who say to Me, ‘Lord, Lord, ‘who will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of My Father in Heaven. When the day comes many will say to Me, “Lord, Lord did we not prophesy in your name, cast out demons in your name, work many miracles in your name? Then I shall tell them to their faces: I have never known you; away from me you evil men! Wow! That is so devastating.

Meticulously, the act of going to church and bible study, is not going to get us into the Kingdom of God, unfortunately, we need to have Jesus show us the way. He is the foundation on which we are to build upon. Read the Holy Scripture in 1Corinthians 3:10-15. So build upon this foundation that will last forever. Turn all your burdens over to the Lord. He knows the best way to handle them. Have faith and trust. This is how we can love God. There’s a lot about faith in the bible. Read about what happens when people use faith and how God is with them. Also read about what happens when we don’t let God help us and they try to do it themselves or when they lose the faith. Remember the six day war? God was with them then. But look at Israel today, they lost the faith. With God all things are possible, with man… So make the Lord your life and give Him yours. God Bless You And May He Be With You Always To Avoid Worries, Fears And Doubts.
