Do Not Fear

During the time we are living in, one can think that everything might be lost. If we look at the circumstances around us, we might be tempted to just give up. Don’t! My family and I keep seeing fascinating cloud structures in the sky, like mountains on the horizon and keep hearing this word: Do Not Fear!

2 Kings 6:16-18, “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the LORD, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.

Many are surrounded by a band of enemies. Circumstances look bleak and you might want to give in to fear or doing something in your own strength or wisdom. Wait on the Lord. Stand firm and watch and see what He is doing on your behalf. There is a way through this valley.

In reference to communities and countries, remember that the Lord only used 300 with Gideon to defeat the enemy coming against the Lord’s people. It has nothing to do with numbers, rather it has all to do with His purpose and power. Reach into His heart and let His love come into yours. 1 John 4:18. Let His perfect love drive out all the fear in your life.

Philippians 4:7, “7And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”AMP

Psalm 125:1,2, “Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.”NIV

If the Lord is on your side, you have all you need. He knows how to take care of us and how to send us help in our time of need. Some of my best times were when it was just He and I. Other times He sent people to me to comfort me and to encourage. Wherever you find yourself, look up to Heaven for a bit, and refocus on His goodness. Let His Presence engulf your being. Let Him be Who He is in your life, the King. Let Him reign and your enemies will cringe before you no matter what the circumstances are around you. 1 Samuel 17: 47, “…the battle is the Lords…” Abundance of blessings to you, His love, grace, forgiveness, mercy and peace…

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
