KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 112:7 KJV “He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD”.
(Read Psalm 112)
Psalm 112 reveals some of the amazing experiences and character of the righteous man. Among the many things that he experiences or develops within himself is the ability not to be afraid of evil tidings because his heart is fixed on the Lord. He is not moved or shaken by threats of evil. This is a very important trait that causes such a one to triumph in difficult moments. A fixed heart on God will always deliver your victory into your hands.
The psalmist lays forth some of the processes that builds up into a person whose heart is established in the Lord. They are as follows:
1. He fears the Lord. (Psalm 112:1)
The fear of God makes the dread of other threatening situations insignificant. Isaiah 8:13 KJV ” Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread”. Set the Lord apart from all other things. Place Him high above everything. You may do this by taking some moments to meditate on His awesomeness. Faith cannot be strong without a proper knowledge of God.
2. The second action is to price God’s word and His commandments above every condition, state or person (PS 112:1). Take every word as pouring forth from the father’s lips and is also filled with His life.
3. Let your tongue say what the word says. Say I have an established heart and have no fear in me. Fear is a negative emotion proceeding from a response to a negative thought, or suggesting coming from the enemy. When dealing with God, never say I am afraid of this or that. That would weaken the stability of your heart in God. Keep saying, my heart is fixed on the Lord, and also declare that God has done what He said. This would strengthen your heart. Your positive words nullify every negative word and also seeds your heart with faith.
My heart is fixed on the Lord and His word. I have no fear of any evil tidings. I am secured in the Lord and I continue triumphing in all circumstances. His word in me is the seed for my miracle. I do not lose the word, for that is all that matters. Glory be to His name.
Isaiah 8:12&13 KJV Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
Hebrews 10:38 KJV” Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him”.
