#FEARLESS365 is a yearlong study of God’s commandment to us to live without fear. For 365 days, we will focus on one scripture and volunteers from all over the world will share their personal thoughts and what God has shared with them on the specific verse. For more info… go here.
I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land.
Leviticus 26:6, NKJV
Fear is a tool of torment the devil used by the devil to attack us as humans, but when I saw this scripture Leviticus 26 verse 6 its holds one of the greatest assurance I have ever seen in the bible.
As we go on I would like to break down this particular verse of the bible (Leviticus 26 verse 6) in four parts as I share with you. The first part:
“I will give you peace in the land”
I noticed that this is an affirmation of peace to me as a child of God and by extension the environment where I find myself. The fascinating part of this is that no matter where I go his peace will follow me there and rest in that environ.
“None shall make you afraid”
This is not just a promise of security to us as children of God but also a promise of supernatural boldness given by the Holy Spirit, the same boldness given to peter to stand his ground against opposition. That is the boldness he is assuring us of.
The next part of this verse fits our today world, because we have so many economic, social, financially beasts out there seeking to take our joy away, clamoring to destroy our God given future. This beast moves in our everyday lives waiting for the right time to strike or sometimes may have already stricken us but the Lord God is assuring us as His children in 2017…
“I will rid evil beast out of the land”
Not minding where you live, not minding the circumstance surrounding your country where you live and not regarding any environmental factor. The beast that hunted our finance, health, economy, etc, God said He in His awesome power will rid them out.
This is an assurance that gives me a hope for a perfect future. Today so many countries are suffering war out breaks but the fourth part of Leviticus 26 verse 6 seals my faith and gives me the understanding that no matter what happens in the country I live he will secure me.
Finally my hope is reenergized by this awesome verse of the Holy Bible, a direct promise from God the father to us as Christians, an assurance that makes me and you as children of God standout from the crowd.
