God’s deliverance from ALL your fears

"I read in Jeremiah 1:10, 12, 14, and 17 during my devotions: "See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.... for I will hasten my word to perform it.... Out of the north an evil shall break forth.... be not dismayed at their faces." In verse 8, Jeremiah wrote, "For I am with thee to deliver thee." Verse 19 records, "They shall fight against you; but they shall not prevail against you: for I am with you, says the LORD, to deliver you."

Please stand on that scripture today. I know what it is to be afraid of faces. As a child, I was so fearful that I would not look anyone in the face. I walked with my head bowed all the time. I could not even look at my father because of fear, but God delivered me from all my fears.

Many years ago, God spoke to me to go to the north of Israel where Hezbollah was entrenched in Lebanon to preach the Gospel. I was told by Israeli intelligence that if I did that, I would be killed. I knew the Lord had sent me and would protect me…and He did. After preaching the Gospel in Sidon, I went down to Beirut to distribute Gideon Bibles to the Marines and share the Word and pray with them. That night, as I slept on the beachhead, I thought about an 18-year-old Marine from Wooster, Massachusetts, whom I had led to Christ. His last words to me that evening had been, "Please tell Mom that her prayer has been answered. I've given my life to the Lord as my personal Savior."

Early the next morning, the area was rocked by a huge explosion as Hezbollah terrorists targeted the barracks with a truck bomb. Two hundred forty-one troops were killed in the attack. We left Beirut in the Avis vehicle which I had rented in Jerusalem. Driving down a dirt road towards Israel, we came under fire from terrorist organizations in the area. As 135mm shells fell around the car, I realized ours was the only vehicle on the road, and it was a rental car with distinctive Jerusalem license plates. Spotlights were playing across the vehicle as night descended. We ran out of gasoline, and it looked as if we would be killed.

As we prayed, a young man who looked Arabic knocked on the window and held up a can of gasoline. There were no homes or villages near where we had coasted to a stop. He poured the container of gas into the vehicle, came back to the window, and pointed to the button. I unlocked the door, and he climbed into the car. Without saying a word, he pointed in the direction we were to drive and calmly led us 32 kilometers to the border of Israel. There is no way I could have found it without his help. A few yards before the border, he held up his hand indicating that I should stop. He opened the door and stepped out of the car. The colonel at the border said to me, "I informed the prime minister's office that you had died. I didn't think there was any possibility you could have survived."

I turned and pointed to the man who had saved our lives and said, "We are alive because of him." No one was there! You will never know how many angels God has assigned to protect you, the amazing things they have done on your behalf and will do even today. Those who fight against you shall not prevail, for the Lord is with you to deliver you.

We have three days left on our extension to raise the remaining half of the funds for the fourth floor and make the second payment of $411,500.
