So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. Isaiah 41:10
Isn’t that a wonderful promise to rest upon?! The world is a place which generates fear and dismay on many fronts. Trust in anyone or anything other than God is sure to lead us into crisis. Yet, ‘do not fear’ is a common assurance throughout scripture – to God’s people. While warnings and admonitions abound for those who do not choose to follow God, comforts and promises proliferate for those who serve Him. There is nothing we need to fear when we walk with Jesus as our Lord and Master. Difficulties arise when we choose to go our own way or follow idols. Lives submitted to Jesus Christ have peace and safety. Seek the presence of the Lord and enjoy His protection.
