The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Crossing the “Fear” line
been reading an e-book: “The Risk Factor” by Kevin and Chad Dedmon,
forward by Pastor Bill Johnson and Missionary Heidi
Dedmon, (father and son) 2011-12-20). The Risk Factor: Crossing the Chicken Line Into Your Supernatural
Destiny. Kindle Edition.
testimonies encourage Christians to believe the Bible when Jesus said:
Mark 16:17-18 And
these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out
demons; they will speak with new tongues;18b they will lay hands on the sick, and they will
Side note: The Dedmons mention Redding, California, Bethel Church that has
become a place where many people are healed of cancer and a
variety of other health problems after receiving prayer.Jesus is the healer and he still heals today
What God does in ReddingCalifornia - - He can do with and for you
when you take a risk to step out and pray for those in need.
Often we hesitate to
reach out because of FEAR - what will people think of me? Remember they thought Jesus was out of his
mind too! And the 120 were accused of being foolishly drunk !
According to Second
Corinthians 10: 5, we need to learn how to take every thought captive under the
obedience of Christ, because the spirit of unbelief can speak in the form of
our personal thoughts.
For example, the
thought could sound something like this, What if this doesn’t work, or what if
this person doesn’t get healed when I pray? These thoughts arise from the fear
that we will fail if we try and also from the fear of people.
Our part is where the risk comes in – We take the risk in
boldness to cross the fear line - - and leave the result up to God.
