There are many people in the world right now who do not feel safe.

Wars, violence, disease, storms … the list goes on and on.  We have become a fearful people.  It’s not just terrorists who scare us.  The evening news can throw us into a panic.

We wonder who will be struck next and with what.

Satan laughs.  He specializes in punches that don’t knock us out, but keep us swinging back at him until we tire out and drop at his feet.  He is telling his demons, “Wait for it … wait for it.”

The story of earth began with something Adam and Eve thought they wanted … more knowledge.  They believed knowledge would lead to power.

BUT it is vitally important to know what kind of knowledge is powerful.  

From the beginning, Adam and Eve had the powerful knowledge God intended for them to have — knowledge of Good.  Before the fall, Adam and Eve never knew fear.

But when they succumbed to satan’s temptation, they got knowledge of Good and evil.  With that door opened, satan had a hook.  Knowledge of evil leads to doubt and fear.

We begin to wonder.  Does God have a Plan?  Is it really a Good Plan?  Will He save us from evil?  Does He really love us?

Yes, He does have a Plan and it is a Good Plan.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Yes, He loves us.

I have loved you with an Everlasting Love; therefore I have continued My Faithfulness to you.

Jeremiah 31:3

Will He save us from evil?

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for The Lord your God goes with you; He  will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

“The Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.”

2 Thessalonians 3:3

How do we shut out evil and return to just knowing Good?  Get to know God more and  more every day.  

Seek Him more than you seek answers from Him.  

“You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

Jeremiah 29:13

Trust Him to know and tell you when you need to know.  

“Call to Me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”

Jeremiah 33:3

Believe that God is good all the time.  

The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made.

Psalm 145:9

Believe that God is Love all the time.

God is love.

1 John 4:8

Believe that God loves you.

“We  have come to know and to believe The Love that God has for us. God is Love, and whoever abides in Love abides in God, and God abides in him.”

1 John 4:16

Welcome back to the original Eden.  Welcome back to Pure Perfect Love.

There is no fear in love, but Perfect Love casts out fear!

1 John 4:18

The Right Knowledge is Power!  Knowledge is Eternal Life and it is happening now, just as Jesus prayed to God it would be.

“Now this is eternal life: that they know You, The only True God, and Jesus Christ, Whom You have sent.”

John 17:3
