Don’t Be Gripped With Fear- A Word by Julie Giordano
The overwhelming fear of the unknown is one of the most unsettling feelings
you can have down deep inside. The battle between faith and fear is real,
but a life of faith will teach how to see beyond your circumstance. So,
don’t be gripped with fear… hold your head up high and walk the plank of
Too many times, you can overthink your decision to believe. If you could
see it, hold it, and touch it, then you wouldn’t need faith.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not
seen (Hebrews 11:1, KJV).
When I was younger and learning how to walk by faith, I just wanted to see
- I wanted to see it.
- Touch it.
- Hold it.
- Ask one million questions.
- Discuss it with my family and friends.
- Then pray a little while longer.
Well, that might have been last week as well. Lol
But lately, I have been spending time reminiscing with the Lord over all
the years He has kept me. I am so thankful He kept me on every mountaintop
and valley low. And how He carried me through the good and the bad. Every
victory and defeat… He was always there.
He’s always faithful to pick you up, dust you off, and set your feet on
solid ground again and again.
- His promises are always yes and amen.
- He will never leave you or forsake you, because
- He has carved you on the palm of His hand.
I have been feeling this spirit of faith rumbling inside of me. I hope you
feel the rumbling in your spirit too.
There is an expectation that has me watching the horizon for what is coming
in this New Year. It makes me feel like a horse in the gates, as the
anticipation is building and building… just waiting to burst out the gate.
I have my eyes wide open, and I am seeking His Word while expecting Him to
speak. I’m looking and listening to every word, dream, prophecy, and
God is speaking.
It feels like the wind is shifting, but just when I think I know which way
the wind is blowing, it shifts again. It is almost as if the wind is

My faith is on edge because I know the Holy Spirit is moving.
This is such an amazing time in the earth to be alive and living by faith.
We are about to see the greatest miracles and God encounters that has ever
been documented since the days of Jesus. There is a great outpouring yet to
invade our world. And I believe, we will see it with our own eyes.
May your faith be charged and ready to be tested in this new season and New
Let’s look at Matthew 8:23-27 TPT when faith was tested in the storm.
23They all got into a boat and began to cross over to the other side of
the lake. And Jesus, exhausted, fell asleep. 24 Suddenly a violent
storm developed, with waves so high the boat was about to be swamped.
Yet Jesus continued to sleep soundly. 25 The disciples woke him up,
saying, “Save us, Lord! We’re going to die!”
26But Jesus reprimanded them, “Why are you gripped with fear? Where is
your faith?” Then he stood up and rebuked the storm and said, “Be
still!” And instantly it became perfectly calm.
27The disciples were astonished by this miracle and said to one
another, “Who is this Man? Even the wind and waves obey his Word.”
- Is your faith being challenged?
- What are you afraid of?
- What is happening all around you that is causing you to panic?
Don’t be gripped with fear…
This is the time to speak to your storm and declare for it to BE STILL.
The authority of God’s Word in your mouth has the power to change the
atmosphere all around you.
So use your words to shape your world.
Love and prayers,
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
