We are so very thankful to Sister Connie Keyohara for this message and for her ministry to the world here at FGGAM! God Bless you Sister!!

“In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

-Jesus of Nazareth

Satan would  love to throw disease, pestilence, and fear of the unknown at us.  But in Christ, we have no need to worry or to fear.

“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.”

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Matthew 6:25-33

We should always take precautionary measures, such as washing our hands, keeping safe and clean areas and of course praying.

Panic in our streets is causing people to stand in line for hours for basic household staples. Through all of this, we have shown we are absolutely not ready to stand in bread lines, patiently. So, there’s that!

“If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small”

Prov. 24:10

Worry doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it empties today of its strength.”

-Corrie Ten Boom

Isaiah 43:1 “Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.”

Psalm 18:2  “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer.

Fear can sometimes come from a lack of faith and trust in God.

Unbelief starts to take root in our hearts then anxiety sets in.

But Scripture says, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”

Isaiah 43:1

We were not saved, blood bought, redeemed and set apart just to go straight to fear and live a crippling life of doubt, fear, anxiety and unbelief.

No, the goal is to come closer to God so that he carries the burden of fear for you.

Fear has no place in the heart or mind of a Christian. Instead pray that he increases your trust and faith. That he increases your ability to to be completely fear and anxiety free.

Isaiah 43:1 “Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.”

We shouldn’t be reckless and we should respect those who are more susceptible to illness. The elderly and those with immune deficiencies, the younger kiddos… etc

Let’s remember that we should take precautions, but do not be led by fear, rather be led by faith.

Many blessings,

Connie Keyohara
