I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:

August 22

TRUST ME, and don’t be afraid. I want you to view trials as exercises designed to develop your trust-muscles. You live in the midst of fierce spiritual battles, and fear is one of Satan’s favorite weapons. When you start to feel afraid, affirm your trust in Me. Speak out loud, if circumstances permit. Resist the devil in My Name, and he will slink away from you. Refresh yourself in My holy Presence. Speak or sing praises to Me, and My Face will shine radiantly upon you.
Remember that there is no condemnation for those who belong to Me. You have been judged NOT GUILTY for all eternity. Trust Me, and don’t be afraid, for I am your Strength, Song, and Salvation.

   Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil,
   and he will flee from you. ーJames 4:7

   Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in
   Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit
   of life set me free from the law of sin and death. ーRomans 8:1-2

   Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.
   The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he
   has become my salvation. ー Isaiah 12:2
