“DON’T Panic – PRAY. DON’T Fear – HAVE Faith”

This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.

John 10:27-28 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.” Beloved take a deep breath, and listen for the voice of the Shepherd. Listen for the calm, listen to the still small voice of the maker of Heaven and Earth. He has got this and He has got you in His enormously capable hands. Open up your Bible, and read the words of life-everlasting. Only then, launch into the action that God has for you. Re-read Ephesians 2:10

DON’T panic. Panic is the enemy. Don’t buy 18 cases of toilet paper(but if you do: tithe-that’s 1.8 cases for the church;) Over three hundred times in Scripture God tells us NOT to fear. Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah had serious reasons to fear, but with God he made the choice to have faith. He looked to God, NOT his circumstances. Take the time that God has gifted to us, and reach out in faith: call your family, call your neighbors. See how you can be of service. Share the gospel, live the gospel! And WHEN you feel anxious, PRAY!!
