I Will Not Fear
Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.
Do You Live in Fear?
What are you afraid of? I’m not talking about the fear of bugs, snakes, or things that go bump in the night. I’m talking about the fear that keeps you awake at night and greets you when the morning comes. That debilitating fear. The fear that keeps you frozen in your tracks. The fear that keeps you from enjoying all God has for you. Psychologists tell us we are born with only two fears: the fear of falling and loud noises. Every other fear is a learned fear. Unfortunately, we seem to be pretty good learners.
In this verse, God commands us not to live in fear. Fear is confessing that God is not in control. It is confessing that God is not watching over you. This command/promise gives us five reasons why we shouldn’t live in fear.
First, You don’t have to be afraid because God is with you. How can you walk in fear knowing that the God of the universe is with you?
Second, He is your God. The creator God is your God. You know Him, and He knows you. You are in a relationship with the living God.
Third, He is strengthening you. God’s power is flowing through you today. How can you ever fear failing when God is strengthening you.
Fourth, He is helping you. It seems like an unfair advantage, but as a child of God, God is helping you in every area of life.
Finally, He is upholding you. Picture a father holding His little daughter’s hand. Any fear the little girl has is swept away as her father takes her hand. God’s righteous right hand is upholding you in the same way.
What are you afraid of today? When you are afraid, remember, God is with you. He’s strengthening and helping you. He is holding your hand to keep you safe.
Let’s look at that promise one more time.
Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
Confess this with me.
- I will not fear because God is with me.
- I will not fear because the creator God is my God.
- I will not live in fear because God is strengthening me
- I will not live in fear because God is helping me.
- I will not live in fear today because God is holding my hand and lifting me up.
