FEAR NOT WHEN THE HEAT COMES 

I received this letter from a daughter in Christ. She is a young wife and mother. She is a faithful in her ministry in the church. She is a woman of God. I am blessed seeing that my spiritual children are maturing spiritually and live fruitful lives. I use her letter as a point of contact to encourage anyone who is under attack and especially who wants to start a new business. May God help you! Trust God to the end! If you want to bless this sister, feel free to comment. She will read it. God bless you my readers! In Jesus’ name!

“Dear Malia, Thank you for finding time to read my letter. Ma, I appreciate that. For some time I have been under attack. I am trying to start a new business and the devil is trying to stop me. I have never done this type of business before. It is totally new for me but I have prayed to God and I have peace about it. God gave me the idea. I trust God for everything, for the location of my shop, for the wisdom, strength and the capital. I know that the devil cannot stop me but he has been deceiving me that he is able to block my way. I fasted and prayed for discernment and I now recognize that it was an evil spirit tormenting me, telling me that I made a mistake, tormenting me about the business plans and making me having regret about resigning my present job… the devil brought fear about the type of business I want to start which is different than my present job… I had serious anxiety about a new beginning in my career, in ‘my business-life’. For some time I fell for its deception and distraction but God will have His way in me and there will be victory in the end!

This past Sunday, my pastor spoke on ‘tormenting spirits’. And tonight, I remembered the sermon and realized the negotiation about the money was tormenting me. To make its worse, my baby got sick. I was burdened because of my child and in that moment of weakness these tormenting spirits attacked me.
Last night I could not sleep. I was inspired by your letter about ‘night ministry’. I prayed to God. I silently cried on my bed. God restored peace, faith and courage to my soul. The devil is wicked and perverts thoughts and puts fear to replace confidence from God. I am humbled today to have discovered this and all the more want to hide inside the deepest part of the Holy Spirit. I already prayed that even when I make mistakes, that God will turn it around for good. My scripture that I’ve been trying to memorize this week is Jeremiah 17:7 (I think) it says blessed is the one whose trust and confidence is in the Lord. I am blessed. God bless you Ma! Your daughter in Christ…”

“Blessed is the man (the woman) who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he (she) shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit” (Jer 17:7, 8)
