Your Faith should prevail over your fears
“Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though ware should rise against me, in this will I be confident.(Psalm 27:3)
Many believers live and are bound by so many fears. Fear of sin, fear of failure, fear of disappointment and in some cases disapproval from others. Fear that cripple our ability to live the life that our God intended for us to live. He did not give us the spirit of fear, but of love and power, and a sound mind. Your Faith should prevail over your fears”!
The Psalmist is King David in the 27th Psalm and he is proclaiming not only the power of His God but purpose of His faith. David confesses that the Lord is his light and his salvation, which gives him the confidence to never fear. David said, even when the enemy is a large host of evil, many things coming against him at one time, in his heart he knows, that he does not need to fear.
Every born again believer need to have the faith of David. Regardless of the size or even the magnitude of the obstacle or opposition, you are called to have faith in He who can, and will see you through. Don’t accept, adhere or acknowledge fear, but rather proclaim that you Have enough faith , “mustard see faith” to speak to and over your situation. Your Faith should prevail over your fears”: ?”

Are you telling of His Goodness?
“That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works”
Since ancient times the phrase, “News Travels fast” .has been an accurate assessment as it pertains to how much human beings love to talk and tell of whatever is going on in their lives. We are quick to brag about personal accomplishments, our children’s achievements or any announcement we can make to others glorifying ourselves. In reality its not whether or not we will say something, it whether or not we will say something about the goodness of our God? “Are you telling of His Goodness?”
David the Psalmist is rejoicing in his relationship with His redeemer. He ask God to examine him, prove him, because he felt like he was living the life God had called him to live. David said, “I have walked in thy truth and I will wash mine hands in innocency. Doing so will allow me to tell others of all thy wondrous works. David knows that its not his own righteousness, or his own goodness that is responsible for him doing well. So he commits to telling the world about the goodness of his God. Thank you for all of the great things He has done. Thank you for blessing me, for being my bridge over troubled waters, my shelter in times of storm, my food in a starving land and water in dry places. We have so many things to be thankful for. “Are you telling of His Goodness?
