Faith is the antidote of fear. Hope is the antidote of depression. "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1 (NIV). Faith is not belief alone, but is the tangible foundation of belief. Faith is a gift of God; however, exercise of faith is our responsibility!
What is FEAR? False Evidence Appearing Real. An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
What is Hope? A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. HOPE is “Having ONLY POSITIVE expectations
A. Believing in yourself
B. Accepting who you are
C. Loving yourself
D. Recreating yourself
Pro 3: 5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Isaiah 40:31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
Hebrews 11:1 now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS NEEDED AGAINST SATAN AND HIS ANGELS WHEN THE AFFLICTION IS FROM THE EVIL SIDE.
A. “We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.” 1 John 5:18-19
B. We have power for spiritual warfare: “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:19-20
C. Command the evil spirits to leave. “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. “ Matthew 11:12

Abba, El Rachum, G-d of compassion, shine your face upon those who are grieving. You are close to the brokenhearted. Bring comfort and shalom among them, ease their suffering. Show them your glory. You will never forsake us. You hear our cries. Have mercy oh Lord and rescue your children. For we seek you and no one else. Guide us, give us the strength to overcome. In the darkness and through the pain we will exalt your name. We will sing hymns of praise and lift our hands to El Chaiyai, the G-d of our life, El Sali, the G-D of our strength.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

"For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." Romans 15:4
When a man's ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
I ’ll continue to thank the LORD because I know and can say with confidence that ’the battle is the LORD’S because the scripture says ”For the LORD my GOD is the ONE who goes with me to fight for me against my enemies to give me victory and great peace.” (Deuteronomy 20:4)
I seek you today in prayer I believe in you and I come into your presence with my whole heart
I trust in you and am thankful for your promises.
I know your word will accomplish it’s purpose.
I will praise your name and glorify you with thanksgiving
Father, in Yeshua’s name I command a hedge of protection to be around my home and property.
I pray that you place a barrier of protection around each one of my family member’s and spouse and I ask that you would intervene at any time necessary with any and all spirit beings that would attempt to harass them.
Lord, dispatch your angels to stand guard at any holes that might be in that hedge.
I command any unbound or wandering spirits to get out beyond that hedge of protection now.
In Yeshua’s name I ask that warrior angels be placed at the doorways and access points to my home and property that would keep out any unbound or wandering spirits that would try to infiltrate my home.
I bind and separate from their functions any demon attached to any individual entering my home and property.
Psalm37:23-24: “If the LORD delights in a man's way, He makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with His hand.”
Did you know that regardless of what others say and do, you have the spiritual authority to rise above their actions and words! [Job 22:28]
As a matter of fact - not even the devil himself can resist or thwart the plans of a child of God when he or she uses the authority that God has placed in their hands! [Luke 10:19 • Mt:16:19]

...so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
2 Timothy 2:21-22
Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes,
useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith,
love and peace,
along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
Doing Good to All Brothers and sisters,
if someone is caught in a sin,
you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently.
But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.
Joshua told the people,
“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”
THE HELMET/ BREASTPLATE
Today, I flee from youthful passions to pursue righteousness.
I am set apart.
Purify my heart with your word, Lord.
I have received your salvation and deliverance.
God is to us a God of deliverances and salvation;
and to God the Lord belongs escape from death [setting us free].
Psalm 68: 20
My hope is in you!
Yes, our hope is in you the beginning and the end the author of our faith
For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord,
my confidence since my youth.
You are the author of my hope.
The beginning and the end, I will trust in you.
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Let us walk in faith.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
the conviction of things not seen
Let us speak in truth.
“O LORD, who may abide in Your tent?
Who may dwell on Your holy hill?
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart.
Let us speak your word and rejoice in it!
For the word of God is alive and active.
Sharper than any double-edgedsword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord
In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do tome?
Let us spread the Gospel & walk in He’s Shalom!
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Peace I leave with you;
my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
The Armor of God is:
4. Faith & trust in God
5. Walking in Truth
6. Speaking, hearing & living His Word
9. Walking in Shalom
10. Spreading the Good News (Gospel)
