When those times come

There are those times when all we believe seem not to be working for us or the way we expect.

I have read the same scriptures many times over and understand them inside out. I can preach with them because I believe them so much and can not even begin to count the number of times God has come through for me.

I have always been this person who never let circumstances bother me. At all!. I grew up in circumstances that would make a best seller. Although from an early age, I wasn't close to God, but I knew He was particularly interested in me, so that knowledge, wherever it came from, made me strong. That knowledge gave me hope, it made me believe in tomorrow. And I grew up and I found Him and we established a relationship and I was redeemed from the curse of the law.

Never once has He failed me. He has always been an 'On Time God'. Never late. So knowing all the testimonies I have over the years, I grew a thick skin against circumstances and never allow worry to visit me.

But those times come, once in a while, when I think, I fear, I tremble, and I allow the devil to almost steal the word that I believe in.

He has told me, 'fear not, for I am with you'. But those times do come. And recently, they have been visiting much more than I want.

But before I fall totally, before I allow fear to grip me and envelop me all over due to some circumstances that is such a small deal for the God I serve to handle - before I fall into that trap that sends my faith into captivity, I remember again, that He has never failed and He cannot change His name today to a God that changes.

So this is just for the record satan, I have spoken His words to myself. I have put Him in remembrance of what He said He will do. Now I am telling you for the record that it's over and done with and I am at peace. You can bring your 'times' whenever you won't, but I will never be captive to fear. Never!
