Have you experienced a life changing event that rocked your world upside down?
A sudden demise in a relationship or loved one, a fatal accident, a sudden diagnosis, feeling of being alone all your life? Has FEAR taken over your life, while faith began to crumble? If so, my Friend this message is for you.
I was 22 weeks pregnant with my triplets ,and had to rush myself to the hospital one morning because I noticed some unusual happenings. I got admitted and was examined by a group of high risk doctors.
Every one of them told me if I am to deliver today my babies won’t be viable and they will be born with long term defects.
Fear started to creep in slowly around me. I prayed, “Lord, I need your strength in my weakest moment right now. Please speak to me .“
The TV was playing nearby and I asked the nurse to help me change it to some other channel, she would flip to different channels until she clicked on a completely unusual channel. I noticed a man was preaching to an audience.
The preacher spoke not in English, but in my native language.The words echoed my ears as the preacher repeated the verse loud and clear “Fear Not, For I am with You”.
Tears streamed as I praised God for comforting me in what I thought was my darkest hour. There were so many movies, soap operas, sports channel and yet God spoke to me that day in the monitor room in my mother tongue.
God still speaks
Our God is the God of all languages, all nations, all race, and all mankind. He will speak to us either through a person, through our circumstances, through music, or through a Message. Seek Him and you will find Him near.
The storms of life and fiery trials will most certainly come ,but the Lord says through all that He will be with us and will not let any of those consume us ,destroy us, or overwhelm us.
The Lord says,”“Non Temere”(Italian),” keine Angst(German), “faire sans crainte(French)
[ Insert your name and say it aloud in the language you are familiar with]
4 weeks later, at 26 weeks I gave birth to my triplets. I saw their fragile 1-pound body in the ICU but it was God’s Promise “Fear Not” that sustained me.
