Fear is a deadly "complusion"!

Fear is a deadly "compulsion"!
Glenn H. Jackson

+ Fear is a deadly "compulsion" [force]!

"deadly" - causing or tending to cause [or lead to] death [darkness]; aiming to kill or destroy;

"compulsion" - a strong, usually irresistible impulse to perfom or act, especially one that is irrational or contrary to one's will [and, in this case, God's Will also];

...."For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

Reflections of the Father's Heart by Glenn H. Jackson


Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear those who can destry both soul and body in hell.  Matthew 10:28

Fear imprisons, faith liberates; fear paralyzes, faith empowers, fear disheartens, faith encourages, fear sickens, faith heals, fear makes useless, faith makes serviceable--and, most of all, fear put homelessness at the heart of life, while faith rejoices in its God.  Harry Emerson Fosdick

You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith. ~Mary Manin Morrissey

Keep your fears to yourself but share your courage with others.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson
We fear men so much, because we fear God so little. One fear cures another.  When man terror scares you, turn your thoughts to the wrath of God.  William Gurnall

Of all the passions, fear weakens judgment most.  Cardinal de Retz

Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight. ~Orison Swett Marden

The first mark of the gift of faith is the love of truth.  Fr. Andrew

The just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:4

It is cynicism and fear that freeze life;
it is faith that thaws it out, releases it, sets it free.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

How Do I Get More Light?
Pastor Adrian Rogers

“Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.” Psalm 119:34

Is God righteous? Yes! How is the righteousness of God revealed? “From faith to faith.” How does that work? God gives you truth…you believe that truth…God gives you more truth.

The more you obey the light, the more light you get.

The reason some of us don’t understand the Bible any more than we do is because we have not been living up to the light God has already given us! If you want to understand the part of the Bible you don’t understand, begin to obey the part you do understand and you’ll understand what you didn’t understand. Do you understand?

Ask God for faith that will reveal to you the hidden truths of His Word that are hard for you to understand right now.

Hey, heard you were up all night
Thinking 'bout how your world ain't right
And you wonder if things will ever get better

And you're asking why is it always raining on you?
When all you want is just a little good news
Instead of standing there stuck out in the weather

Oh, don't hang your head
It's gonna end
God's right there
Even if it's hard to see Him
I promise you that He still cares

When the waves are taking you under
Hold on just a little bit longer
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger
The pain ain't gonna last forever
And things can only get better
Believe me, this is gonna make you stronger
Gonna make you stronger, stronger, stronger
Believe me this is gonna make you

Try and do the best you can
Hold on and let Him hold your hand
Go on fall into the arms of Jesus

Oh, lift your head
It's gonna end
God's right there
Even when you just can't feel Him
I promise you that He still cares

'Cause if He started this work in your life
He'll be faithful to complete it
If only you believe it
He knows how much it hurts
And I'm sure that
He's gonna help you get through this
