Fear not…

When I woke up this morning these well known words came into my mind…

‘Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.’

Here believers are told not to fear and why, what precious promises to hold onto when those doubts and fears come!!

Friends, fear fights against God’s love!

Fear opposes faith!!

Fear tells us that God’s love, mercy and power are not big enough!!!

We’re to fight fear with all our might, fighting it with faith and truth, picking up ‘the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;’

This instruction to ‘fear not’ is followed by five reasons we shouldn’t fear.

1: Because God IS with us…

“lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

2: Because He is OUR God…

“For this God is our God for ever and EVER: he will be our guide even unto death.”

3: Because He WILL strengthen us…

“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, That the everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth,Fainteth not, neither is weary?

There is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; And to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the Lord SHALL renew their strength; They SHALL mount up with wings as eagles;

They SHALL run, and not be weary; And they SHALL walk, and not faint.”

4: Because He WILL help us…

“God is our refuge and strength, a VERY present help in trouble.”

“My grace IS sufficient for thee: for my strength IS made perfect in weakness.”

5: And because He WILL uphold us with the right hand of His righteousness.’

“The LORD upholdeth ALL that fall, and raiseth up ALL those that be bowed down.”

Believer, THIS 👆🏻 is who our God if and these are His promise to you!!

Fear not, “the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he WILL be with thee, he will NOT fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

I'm a Christian wife and Mum of two. I love to study my Bible and create God centered items for myself and our shop. I also enjoy a variety of crafts, reading and baking. We are all quite creative so our house is often a hive of creativity! I have several chronic illnesses including Lupus and Fibromyalgia so I am very thankful that I have been given a creative mind to help fill the hours when I don't have the energy for anything else.
