    Thank you Elkay for beautiful words of encouragement.

  • Elkay says:

    Dream, I totally share your thoughts.

    Here below I have reproduced a daily devotional from David Jeremiah that perhaps helps understand the loyalty of persecuted Christians.
    ————————————-
    With Such a God!

    I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you should be afraid of a man who will die, and of the son of a man who will be made like grass?
    Isaiah 51:12

    Alexander Mackay was a Scottish engineer who became a missionary to Africa in the 1870s. At first his work in Uganda went well, but when the local king passed away and was replaced by his cruel son, everything changed. The atrocities that descended on Mackay’s converts were unspeakable. The new Christians were tortured, roasted in the fire, dismembered, strangled, and clubbed to death. Mackay, in stunned shock, fell to his knees, his Bible open before him. The passage he read was Isaiah 51. Every verse seemed to speak to him, such as verse 16: “I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand.” He arose, determined to continue his work whatever the cost.

    Few of us will face the tragedies Mackay encountered in his ministry, yes every day brings fresh challenges to each one. When trouble threatens to overwhelm, resign to God’s will and remain calm, even if God delays. He will comfort you. He will cover you with the shadow of His hand. He will give you courage for the times.

    With such a promise and with such a God, who shall be afraid?
    Alexander Mackay

    Dream, may God bless you today with exactly what you need today!!

  • dream says:

    Elkay.. I know that God knows everything and he knows who can endure such a death. I know that God gave them peace and strength. I know that even that are thoughts in me if I would be able to confess Jesus in such a situation I know that God knows if I would be able to endure it or not. I am crying and praying for those persecuted christians and I am very sad that they had to died such a horrible way but on the other side I know that they glorified God by their death as the Bible says. There is also a kind of spiritual desire to died for God but God knows the best what I can endure. But all this thing is deeply touching me and drawing me closer to God.

  • Elkay says:

    Dream, when I was a much younger person, in such a situation, I asked myself, “Why not just cross your fingers behind your back, tell a lie, and deny your faith so as to avoid such a horrid death?”.

    Now, many years later, I have realized that the human souls most close to God Himself and now in heaven (and probably in the life to come) are those who have been slain because of their faith. If you ever wondered about the Holy Spirit’s inspiration of Scripture, recognize that no mortal man could have possibly written Rev 6:9-10 . . .

    When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”

    This says that Christians who have given up their lives rather than denying Christ as the Son of God and claiming Him in the face of death as their personal Lord and Savior, have the honored position of being directly beneath God’s throne in heaven and personally conversely with Him! Even questioning Him! At the same time, my stomach turns at the horror of what is going on . . . and I pray for Christ to return and put an end to the pure, raw evil of it all.

    Bottom line, coming to the place in faith that we love Jesus more than we love our life is a gift from the Holy Spirit and prayer along this line is a worthy endeavor. It is certainly not a goal we can achieve in our fallen humanness.

    I will close with these words of prayer from Ephesians 1:17
    “I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, will give to Dream the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of his understanding being enlightened; that he/she may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward her/him who believes, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principalities and powers and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.” Amen.

  • dream says:

    How would we, christians react if we were just about to die like those christians in the middle east? Would we call on Jesus name or deny Jesus to save our life? I think at such moments we can really know if we love Jesus more than our life!

  • Elkay says:

    Dream, you have asked a question that should challenge every person who claims-to-be, thinks-they-are or truly-is a Christian, a question that is the litmus test each of us must pass if we are to inherit eternal life with God. It is a hard question and I suppose the answer is different for different people. For some, probably easy to answer, for others, probably very hard and complex. In other words, there may not be a universal answer.

    I might suggest that loving Christ more than one’s life is not the “starting point” of being a follower of Christ. As Jesus said early on, “repent and believe in the gospel (that the kingdom of heaven has arrived)” (Mk 1:15), so the beginning step is to turn away from a way of worldly life (“Unless you repent, you will likewise perish”-Lk 13:2-3) to a new direction of Godly living trusting in Christ for salvation (“Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.”-Acts 16:31). After that, one seeks to be led by the indwelling Holy Spirit (Rom 8:14, taken with 8:11 and how that comes about will also be different for different people) and faith grows with obedience as the Spirit of God continues to lead into new dimensions of truth found in a diligent study of God’s Scripture, with prayer and meditation. Persons who will practice all the truths the Spirit gives will never stop growing in faith in Christ as both Savior and Lord.

    “Sooner or later”, the Christian will arrive at a point where he/she can say with Paul, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Gal 2:20). If you can honestly say this with your mouth and believe it in your heart, then I would conclude that you love Jesus more than your life because being crucified with Christ means you have totally died to your old self and taken on a new self in Christ. (Rom 8:9-11 and 2 Cor 5:17).

  • Kate says:

    What coping methods do I feel are not correct? I self harm. I have been doing so again recently badly.
    Thank you for praying. I hope that God will allow me some peace.

  • B. Miller says:

    Hi Kate,

    Would you like to share the ways in which you cope that are viewed as “incorrect”? What leads you to believe your coping methods are not “correct,” Kate. and in what way are they not so? If you would like to talk about this with someone, but do not feel comfortable doing so publicly, Kate, please feel free to go to the following link, and one of our online mentors will respond to you privately and confidentially:

    http://powertochange.com/discover/talk-to-a-mentor/

    It is my prayer, Kate, that you understand just how precious you are to the Lord Jesus and your heavenly Father, and no matter what your situation or circumstances, always He is with you and present to you, and He loves you infinitely, for He promises:

    “‘For the mountains shall depart
    And the hills be removed,
    But My kindness shall not depart from you,
    Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,’
    Says the Lord, who has mercy on you.” (Isaiah 54:10, NKJV)

    Lord Jesus, please bless Kate at this time, and draw her close to Your heart. Help her to feel Your holy Presence and to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that You are there for her and that You will never leave her nor forsake her. May Your everlasting Presence in Kate’s life give her the strength in You that she needs to reach out for the help she needs to overcome the fear of people that is so deep within her, for You are her Strength and her Courage and her Sufficiency, O Christ, and You will walk with her through any trial. Thank You that You promise Kate the following:

    “Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by your name;
    You are Mine.
    When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
    When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
    Nor shall the flame scorch you.
    For I am the Lord your God,
    The Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” (Isaiah 43: 1-3, NKJV)

    In Your holy and mighty Name, I pray, Lord Jesus, Amen.

  • kate says:

    Thank you for praying for me …the Christmas period was somewhat difficult, I have some ways of coping with things that is not seen as correct. And I feel to some of these things.

  • Hazelle Schenk H. Schenk says:

    Hi Kate,
    Thank you for visiting our website. How have your Christmas holidays been? You’ve mentioned before that you were dreading the upcoming days. I hope that you were able to find some peace these last few days.
    You also mentioned that you believe in God. That’s great to hear! One of my favourite verses in Scripture is Matthew 28:11. God’s Words are so comforting! I understand that sometimes it gets overwhelming to be around people. Even though sometimes it feels as if He is far away, I would still encourage you to keep praying. I can promise you that God hears all of our prayers. Would it be alright if I prayed with you tonight?
    Father, thank you for Kate! Thank you for creating her and for the love that you have for her and for all of us. I pray that you would surround her with your peace today. I may not fully understand what Kate is going through right now, but I know that you are always there for her. I pray that you would lift much of the anxiety that comes with being around people. I pray that she enjoys the rest of this season of celebrating the birth of Jesus. I pray that you bring healing her heart, and her nerves. Lord, please meet her in the way that she needs you most. Send the Holy Spirit and wrap her in your arms today.
    All this I ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.
    Kate, I’m not sure if you’ve already done this, but have you connected with one of our online mentors? You may request one here: http://powertochange.com/discover/talk-to-a-mentor/.
    God bless you and take care!

  • Kate says:

    I can only hope I find freedom one day.

  • Kate says:

    Dear memechar, Kate, linnietea, God is with you and for you. Look at the cross. When you see it in ordinary life, it’s just a lonely guy, judged as a criminal, despised, rejected, disgraced, hideous in death and gone forever. When you see it with faith, it’s God incarnate, taking upon Himself the judgement for sin, suffering the abandonment we fear, so that we ourselves will never be forsaken, but instead will be made glorious in Him, wrapped up in His everlasting life.

    This life is almost unbearably difficult for many people, and there are no reasons provided. The good news of Jesus is that hope is not just a feeling, it is the assurance we have of a certain future with God in glory.

  • linnietea says:

    I didn’t know it was SEX,but my boy cousin always did the act on/to me as far back before I even was in elementary school.then my “new” daddy told me this was the way daddy showed love,but it was so special no one could know.I went to my youth pastor and instead of helping me,he did what my dad had been doing.I wrote a letter yrs later,my mom called me a variety of colorful adjectives,she used my child as leverage saying,I’d never see my child again if I didn’t say I lied.I KNEW I WASN’T LYING BUT I HAD NO IDEA MY MOM WOULD ALLOW THIS.once,I went to a church camp,I couldn’t undress like the others,I felt something was wrong with me and I was different.I live alone,no family,friends;I do have a dog.I don’t blame GOD,I’ve always believed that if something is really bad He knows who He can entrust so that dependency is only on Him since other humans can’t fix the problem.I can only surmise that there’s purpose behind the pain.

  • vickie burns says:

    Kate,
    i read your comment and i’m praying for you. While we are all busy with Christmas we need to remind us what it is all about. God DOES care about you… He gave His Son for you. Also, He gave us a wonderful book to help us to get to know His loving nature. Read your Bible. Start with Philippians, Chapter 4, then read the book of John. Find comfort in those words.

  • Kate says:

    My greatest fear is people … I don’t think I will ever be free. I believe in God and I pray but I feel as though he is not at all interested in me so now with the busy Christmas season I just hide away in doors. Dreading the days ahead where we all gather …. I fear people. I would like to say I can control the fear but I can’t. It controls me, fully

  • memechar says:

    Well, I am facing a new fear as we draw near the Christmas season. I had been living off of my ex husbands pension for the last 8 years. I have not been able to work due to illnesses. The bank informed me the other day that I am all out of money in my account!! Devastated… fear, to say the least! I have been crying and crying these last few days. How am I going to pay my bills? I am expecting company over the holidays, and how will I get groceries? I am living on social assistance at $73.00 a week!! What can I do with that amount of money? I have a car, thank God my dad bought me one before he passed away 4 years ago…that’s all paid off. But, I do have on-going bills as you all know. Yes, fear has gripped me… I feel so lost, alone and scared!!!! God, I need you to intervene now more than ever! Please, people, pray for me! Thank you…

  • Esther Esther says:

    Thank you Kawaii,

    You are an encouragement. The word of God is our benchmark. It is our reference point. It gives us hope and also convicts us. When we are fearful, God reminds us what to do. Remember there are more than 300 scripture verses in the Bible on fear. Examples include: – “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline”. 2 Timothy 1:7; “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”. Joshua 1:9; “He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you”. Psalm 91:4-8 and many more.

  • Jamie Jamie says:

    Hi Eric, I want you to know that you are not alone. Many people have issues that seem to plague us over and over again. But there is hope for us all. Peter tells us, “So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Doing this, you will never stumble or fall away.” (2Peter 1:10) So it is possible to experience God’s Spirit bringing complete victory over these weaknesses. The key to it is asking the Holy Spirit to help you. Whenever you have the temptation to follow the old sinful patterns, stop and ask God to give you the control you need to refuse. Fill your mind with verses that promise His help and power. And then don’t do it, trusting that His Spirit is helping you say, “NO!” Thanks Him for HIs help and ask that He help you again the next time you are tempted. You know those are prayers He is going to answer because they line up perfectly with His will for your life.

  • vickie burns says:

    Eric: think you meant to type CURSED not “cured”. Am I right? Sure changes the flavor of the comment.

  • eric says:

    I’ve been saved for five years I genuinely called upon jesus and put my Faith in him and convicted with godly sorrow and I used to go alot by feelings and I kept cod repenting and I was backsliding than last year I was cured by masturbation and I have peace bit I’m on meds and serious panic attacks!!!!! Ugggh it won’t stop I hate it

  • Kawaii says:

    hi Selah,

    I had read your reply a while ago and wanted to let you know that I prayed for you.

    Just an over cap of events that happened in regards to my comment in January: I finally surrendered totally to Christ and got baptized this summer ( in may). Right after that, a series of crazy events happened. I became seriously ill and also lost a few friends along the way. Despite all that, I have been praising God through it all and I feel happier and full of joy. Life is not perfect but I decided to trust in God for everything. I am not perfect, but I believe God is and his work in me is being done and I see the changes already. In regards to my passion for writing verses singing, I decided to do both. The fear of failure was replaced by courage and diligence. There are days where I question my abilities and wonder if I’ll make it in life, but I quickly go back to the word and the holy spirit reminds me that I can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. I believe, Selah, that if you put your trust in God, all of your fears will seem silly and you will stand strong and chase your dreams. Look at Gideon, who was fearful and cowardly, he questioned everything but the moment he believed in the one who sent him he was full of courage and did the impossible with the help and guidance of God. Most of all, I confessed to God that I knew that my body and my dreams were worth nothing if I didn’t love him. If I do not obey his teachings and trust in him fully, everything I work for will be futile. If I do not practice loving my neighbor, all my hard work would be in vain. When I made Christ First and the most important, everything fell into place. Sanctification is a hard and painful journey but it is revealing and necessary. I will continue to pray for you and I thank you for your kind words. Just knowing we can build each other up in love has brighten my day, and year so much.

    I pray for Selah and everyone else struggling with fear and confusion. I Pray Heavenly father that your spirit will move in such a way that it will leave them speechless! I pray that they will become bold in every way and on fire for you and your kingdom! I pray that everything they put their hands to will prosper in your name. Most of all I pray that your peace and joy will saturate them from head to toe. Let your awesomeness rest upon them and let this be a testimony of your love for us all, in Jesus Name, Amen.

    Much love in Christ,
    Kawaii

  • Andrew says:

    @Selah in my life I have personally discovered that when I pray over fears that I have which have been many as when I look within myself I see a very insecure person! God chose to bless me with ADD and me being aware that I was different than others in many ways but not knowing what until later on life was very confusing and made me extremely fearful of many things in life including success.

    Two years ago I decided to surrender myself over to Christ totally as I tried to do everything on my own and I have a very strong personality with a strong will. Things did not change overnight as I fail often however I can slowly see God working within my life as I allow the Holy Spirit to take away the fear and work within me as the more we submit to him the greater peace a person feels. Like Paul God often gives a handicap whether it is mental, physical or otherwise and the reason he does this is so we submit to him and others look at our success and we can tell them it is not me but Christ through me with is making me succeed! God gave all of talents and when surrender them to God even when we fail we know that God has a purpose for the failure. USE your talents to Bles God! God Bless!

  • Selah says:

    I don’t know what I can really say is my biggest fear in life. Overall, I don’t want to be viewed as a fearful person, but I know that’s what I am. God’s given me a love for singing and an amazing opportunity to get into an amazing music program in Indiana, but I am afraid of succeeding and leaving everything behind to risk a career in music, especially when I am not in love with it. I am afraid of failure which is probably why I am afraid of pursuing music. I am afraid of failing in my relationship with God because I struggle with OCD–mainly going through several spiritual battles of wondering I really believe what I profess to believe. These are only to name a few. I have just ended a bittersweet relationship today because of my desire to recommit myself to God, and I can already feel the fear and the nagging voice telling me I’m just going to fail again even in little things like having devotions and actually enjoying them!

  • Selah says:

    Kawaii…
    I first saw the article on this website on the blessings of loneliness maybe three days ago. God led me to it during the end of a long bittersweet season in my life. I felt some comfort from it and then I saw your comment about ending a romantic relationship with someone who is not a believer. And then your remarks about wanting Christian friends and how you have had friendship struggles and feel lonely because of this. When I saw that, I was shocked because I am in the exact same situation. And it gave me the encouragement I so desperately needed to end the romantic side of my relationship with my best friend who happens to be an atheist. I so want to recommit my life to Jesus and knew I could not profess to love my Savior and be so much in love with someone who could not profess the same, truly feeling the antithesis. And now I come on this page to do a study on fear which I struggle with more than anything and I see your comment on your goals of being a novelist and safety and then how singing and performing are you dreams. I cannot begin to explain the awesome encouragement God is giving me through you. Once again, I am in an extremely similar situation. I will be praying for you, and just wanted to let you know how God has used your devotion to Him as a catalyst for my own relationship with Him. Thank you so much!

  • Doris Beck Doris says:

    That’s an interesting perspective angels, that these individuals actually suffer from a psychological disorder. I don’t know if that is always the case, but I agree that it is often the case.

    I also totally agree that there is a need to forgive ourselves because we do take on the blame even when that is totally inappropriate!!! And it is so true that the abusive person accuses the victim as being the reason for the abuse.

  • angels says:

    Verbal abuse by an adult who assaults you verbally and damages your self-esteem is an individual who suffers from a psychological disorder. Usually they suffer from BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) or NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder). Individuals who are Borderline have a very difficult time regulating their emotions and have rages. They see everything black and white. There is no grey areas. Meaning, at one point in their relationship with you, they will idolize you and after an arguement for ex, they will hate you treat you less than human.

    Individuals who are Narcissists believe they are better than everyone else and have grandiose thoughts about themselves. For example..they may brag that they are great musicians, but can hardly play an instrument. In their eyes they are the greatest individuals on the planet and everyone else is lower than dust. They often need a narcissistic supply. Someone who will take care of them and pay their way in life. If felt threatened by you or denying what they want they will have a narcissistic rage! They become abusive, verbally, sexually, physically.

    Artria, you are doing the right thing by ignoring this individual and also by forgiving them, but you also need to forgive yourself. I say that because being victims of these type of individuals, we often blame ourselves. They often make us believe that their actions they impose on us is our fault. I do understand, I was a victim of a NPD ex-boyfriend. keeping yourself safe is important and looking after yourself and your emotional well-being.

  • Andrew says:

    @artria I understand first hand abuse however in my life I have discovered that if it was not for the abuse that occurred in my life I would not have compassion towards the hurting of others. God often if we allow him too will use a heartache to comfort others who have gone through the same thing. In life people will always hurt us as we grow older we become wiser and are more careful to be involved in loud abusive people as their ignorance is due to the very low self esteem they have of others. WE don’t have to be their friends but we can show Gods love to the hurting. God Bless

  • artria says:

    For a long time I was afraid to stand up to a relative and point out how they were hurting me mentally. This person is bigger, louder, and older than me. I thought I had no choice except to either hide or be lead around by this relative. I had also been naive until having spent even more time around them. I finally realized that even though God expects me to forgive them, that he doesn’t require me to associate with them. I told them how I refuse to be hurt again and again by their mind games and verbal abuse, that they let me down in ways they can’t fix, and I would not be around them. It hurts when a child says they hate you, and you understand, forgive, and discuss it, but a grown person saying it repeatatively along with cursing over the smallest disagreements is abusive. Abuse is never acceptable. God help victims of abuse to be strong and face their fear through you. Give it all to him. Peace be in our hearts, we are not alone!

  • Esther Esther says:

    At one point or another we are all gripped with fear of some sort. we should be careful not to let this fear control us through out our lives. I fell a victim of fear through out my life and until now, I did not know that it is not right to be a slave of fear. This was fear of rejection. God in His word has promised us that He has not given us a spirit of fear but of love and a sound mind. If you have God, when faced with any kind of fear, He is faithful enough to enable you to overcome it.

  • Kawaii says:

    I can personally relate this video with my life. I am a recent college graduate and I had dreams of becoming a novelist when I first entered. During my sophomore year of college I realized I was changing and my dreams were too. I wanted to be a novelist because it was safe. I didn’t have to be around people and if I worked hard I could live in a nice house away from the world. However, God was tearing down those walls I built for protection and the dreams I always had to sing and perform came back to me. However, It was frightening because it meant that I had to communicate and interact with people. I had to open myself up to strangers when I sang or perform. It meant I had to also dig deep into myself. Even today, I find myself still crippled with fear. I’m afraid to get a job because I don’t feel qualified or good enough. I don’t think i’m talented enough for ANYTHING. I don’t feel as if I am even good enough to date because I don’t have a job and things are just so out of control. I prayed that God will show me the way, show me how to overcome fear. Honestly, I know I am afraid of failure, rejection etc. I need to be in control and safe because my childhood was always full of fear and insecurity. I think this video is saying that if I continue to live this way , everything will pass me by. In regards to the young blonde man and his girlfriend, he was even willing to give up his girlfriend for a false sense of comfort. He was pushing everything out of his life.

    I pray to God that everyone who is struggling with fear and insecurity, that he will personally visit each and every one of you reading this. The holy spirit can mend a broken spirit, he can drive away fear and he can supply you with the courage you need to succeed. In Jesus name I rebuke the spirit of fear, anxiety and insecurity. I speak forth peace and love and courage into the lives of those reading this, in Jesus name. If we pray for others and agree and believe that he can do this, it shall be done. In Jesus name, AMEN!

    Hi Mercy,

    From what I understand, you are engaged to a man who loves you very much but you both have a temper. We all get angry sometimes but it sounds like you might be having trouble communicating in a healthy way. If you’re getting angry about something very quickly, why not have your conversation in writing? If you and your fiancé are both angry at each other it might help to take a few minutes on your own to cool down and write out why you reacted the way you did. If you both tend to react very quickly it might help to sit down and see what your biggest triggers are. What is it that makes you angry? How can you take time to listen to each other instead of getting upset immediately?

    I hope I understood your request and my prayer for you and your fiancé is that you would be strengthened in your relationship. If you’d like to talk to someone privately about your relationship you can contact a mentor. Mentors are available to listen and help you through any situation.
