Don't Panic!

God is right there and He hears your cry. He said that He would never leave you or forsake you, so don't panic! That is easier said than done, isn't it? When we feel afraid/insecure panic can easily set in. In the panic mode we begin struggling in our own desperate attempt to survive. Which can be deadly.

When fear begins creeping into our hearts and minds this is the time that we need to be still and trust God. Do not struggle by trying to do things in your own strength and power. Cry out to God! it's okay, just don't panic. Rest, be still and trust Him. Your Heavenly Daddy hears your cry and He will come to your aid just in time, and sweep you up in His arms.

Oh, I remember this. The first time I saw it was while I was pregnant with Reagan and after my first miscarriage. I panicked! I even knew that the ending had to be a good one, but emotionally I couldn't deal at that time. It is powerful though, and what a great perspective, to tie it in to our Father. Great post! Blessings!

I really was worried that no one would come to save the baby. I can see it was staged, now.
Even though the baby understands to roll on his back and float, I would be afraid that the baby would drown. Sorry.

Tamela, I am going to pass on that video to my friends with little children.

I pressed the Don't Panic! button, and I did not panic.;) It works!

Tamela,

Amazing little video about a good thing for parents to consider if they have small ones with access to pools and a great use of it to illustrate a Christian principle. I have to admit watching it I kept thinking, "put down the camera and get the kid!" :)

Yes...sometimes we float, sometimes we swim! But the one thing we know is that our Father will not let us sink! Great post Tamela!

Wow! I gotta pass this on. I almost lost my son to near drowning. It was at a party with many people around, I turned while standing in the jaccuzi and saw him sinking in the pool, blue, staring up, lifeless, not moving. I panicked and tried mouth to mouth but nothing would go in, I could not find a pulse, HE WAS BLUE!, I ran out of the pool with him and slipped and his head hit the concrete like a bowling ball. He vomited and began to breath. The rest is history, he is alive and well, but I still have nightmares. Please spread this and tell others. Watch your children! By the Grace of God my son lived. I have never told this to anyone... I was drunk. I am so ashamed, God forgive me.

hello Scott

Wow!, what a scary moment for a Father. I Praise the Lord that your little boy was alright. God really has a way of getting our attention don't He? and when God gets our attention there is no forgetting it. God is so merciful and gracious to us even when we are at our worst. Thanks for your comment Scott. May God continue to bless you and your family!

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
