Be Self-Motivated in the Word! – by Pastor Raphael




*Text*: Deuteronomy 31:6


“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Deuteronomy 31:6 (KJV)


The secret to overcoming fear is acting on the Word of God. Fear of the known and the unknown can deter you from making progress in your life. The only fear that you should harbor in your heart is the holy fear of God (Proverbs 1:7); any other fear will make you foolish and all your decisions and choices will be affected.


Dear beloved, be self-motivated in the Word of God and confront anything that wants to scare you. Be strong in prayer and be conscious of the presence of God in you because He will never fail you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). You can accomplish that goal or assignment that seems too difficult; if it is a godly assignment or project, then you have God’s support. May you receive the grace to march forward in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah! You Are An Overcomer!





My dear Father and my God, thank You for the words of encouragement. Yes, You are with me, so I won’t be afraid but, rather, motivated to press forward. I use this motivation from Your Word to keep moving and pressing forward in all my endeavors, thus shining for You and drawing others to the light in Jesus’ name. Amen!
