Fear Not…How is This Possible?

smaller worryFear not...a phrase that appears in 18 books of the Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, angels, prophets, apostles and Christ himself announce that we are not to fear.

Job, a righteous man, felt fear and gave in to it. He believed that even though he did what was right, God would not take care of him. The things he feared came upon him.

Contrast that to David, who stood before the giant, ready to fight even though he was completely outsized and outmanned. Scripture tells us David quickly ran out to meet the giant head on. Why? because he knew who God was and he trusted God.

The challenge to fear is faith.

Fear not….God answers prayer

Fear not….God loves us.

Fear not…God will guide us

Fear not…God is with us.

Greater is He that is in us, then he that is in the world.

Do you believe it? If so, fear not!

 

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear. for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
