Fear Is A Liar

Fear Is A Liar

This morning the devil came at me hard. He told me that I had gotten myself in over my head. I was too far in and I couldn’t get out. He told me that I was not loving enough, I wasn’t kind enough, I wasn’t spiritual enough, I wasn’t strong enough. He told me I wasn’t good enough to be on this trip. But guess what, fear is a liar! Today ended up being one of the coolest days of my life. I got to explore the city of Iquitos with my new family, my new best friend Day and I joined a soccer game with a bunch of local Peruvians, we tried Peruvian ice cream, visited a Christian Amazonian tribe, went to a Peruvian zoo, and I got to watch a sunset from one of the coolest rooftops in all of Iquitos.

Today God showed me that He has provided me with everything I need to be successful. He hand-selected a family to do this trip with me, and He personally enters my heart to give me His strength and His love. God reminded me through a new friend of the verse Joshua 1:9. It says,

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

My Father has gone before me, He is with me now, and He will stay in Peru long after I return home. Fear is a liar, God is truth!


Father, you turn my weakness into strength.

You turn my fear into confidence.

You turn my dependency into independence.

Father you transform my life.

Father, I love you. Thank you for loving me.


All my love,

James Martin
