Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV) Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
If only I had more money. If only I lived in a safer place. If only the economy was more stable. If only the politicians I agree with were in office. If only I knew that I would never have a heart attack or get cancer. If only I could be sure my spouse will never cheat on me or leave. If only my kids would grow up to be good kids.
If only there was never a reason to fear… then for sure, I would never fear. Sorry, doesn’t work that way.
There is plenty you could be fearful of in this sin-cursed world but for those whom God loves, there is no reason to fear any circumstance of this life. God is with you. God will strengthen you. God will see you through. God will hold you up, walk with you and see you across the finish line. Don’t fear, don’t be discouraged… there is no reason to for He is your God.
Think It Over: Of course this gift is only for those who love God and have placed their faith in Him. The magic words are “be merciful to me a sinner” which indicates you realize who you are, who He is, and that He is your only hope to pay your debt to Him. For those of us who have placed our faith in Jesus, there is no reason to fear for I AM is with us.
