I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
“Fear Not” is a very strong word, a word of hope, a word of certainty. When God says “Fear Not”, it means that you have no other choice than to relax and hand over all your situations to God.
In Isaiah Chapter 41 verse 10, God not only said Fear Not, but went further to add that:
- “Fear Not, I am with you”;
- “Fear Not, I will strengthen you”;
- “Fear Not, I will help you”;
- ”Fear Not, I will uphold you”.
So what other assurance do you need? He is asking you to relax and let Him do the talking for you. Relax and let Him do the “stuffs” for you. Fear Not!
God has his own timing, and He knows when to come in into what you are going through in Life. We are flesh and always do our own things in the ways of the flesh. I am very much sure that we would not want to move out of God’s timing neither do we not want to move in the flesh.
We have to be very conscious to understand and know when God is moving and get prepared and not be afraid to move with Him.
Fear Not Says the lord.
God is always on the look out to strengthen Us; He is always looking out for the best for us. The devil on the other hand has always been working to bring us down. This he does by instituting FEAR into us.
The Bible made it perfectly clear in the 2nd Book of Timothy, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” ~ 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
Fear Not, I will uphold you
Satan is the father of fears. He always finds ways to bring fear into our mind, and gets us emotionally down. Satan enjoys using fear to keep us from moving to the direction that God wants us to go.
Wherever and wherever the Holy Spirit tries to steer our course into a new direction, Satan tries to bring in congestion and fears to make us not to follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.
It is important for us to remember that whenever fear creeps into our mind, God says “Fear Not”, for “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” ~ Ephesians 6:12 (NKJV)
Fear Not, I will strengthen you.
God promises to always strengthen you, but He only asks of one thing from you – Fear Not! Do you desire to be free from fear – then Fear Not? Do you live a life of fear – then Fear Not? God says He will strengthen you, so Fear Not. Fear Not For I am with you Always says the Lord God Almighty!
There will definitely come a time when you have to man up and face your fears. When that time comes, there is no going back. You can’t run away from it. So it’s important that you take in the strength of God and Fear Not.
When that time comes, always remember that God says – Fear Not, for I will strengthen you. Just acknowledge that God is there with you; Jesus Christ is there with you; The Holy Spirit is there with you.
Once you acknowledge that you are more than a conqueror, you have to strengthen your faith, stretch your hands and take Jesus’ hands, He will lead you to safety as promised.
Are you on a crossroad in your life? Have you reached that point of no return? That point in life when all you think about are the negatives, the disasters, the bad things that are happening in your life?
Listen! God says that “I will uphold you with My righteous right hand”. It is your choice to either listen to Him, give Him your hands and follow His lead, or stay at the same spot listening to the leadings of the devil and go round and round until you are tired and exhausted.
Fear Not, I will Help You.
Fear is your enemy, but “Fear Not” should be your friend, for it came directly from the mouth of the Almighty God. Remember that the Almighty God is eager to deliver you from all your worries and fears. His hands are wide open to receive you.
God wants to help you, so Fear Not. All you need to is to come with your heart and open mind. Ask Jesus to come into your life and take control. Ask Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour today. He is the main channel to get to God.
