We have a wonderful Saviour who loves us so much. Jesus wants us to live in peace and not fear, because He is not the one who gives us the spirit of fear. (2 Timothy 1:7) Jesus is the Peace giver. While there are many reasons to not fear, today I want to share 6 Reasons for Not Fearing.
6 Reasons For Not Fearing
He Strengthens Me
With Jesus, we have a Resting Place where we can go for strength.
Isaiah 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
He is With Me
As a child of God, we Belong to Christ. We never have to fear Jesus leaving us alone to walk this life. He is always with us. (Hebrews 13:5)
Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
He Helps Me
With Jesus, we have A Very Present Help. We can run to Him and know we will get the help we need. Isn't it amazing to know we don't have to try and figure this life out alone?
Isaiah 41:13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
He Redeems Me
With Jesus, we have The Lamp Who Lightens Our Darkness. He will deliver us from darkness and keep our path lit where we can see.
Isaiah 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
He Protects Me
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
He Cares for Me
The Lord is My Shepherd. The Lord knows every one of our names. He knows our strengths and our weaknesses. He is even willing to "leave" the rest of us to look for the one who as gone astray. Amazing!
Matthew 10:31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
While fearing is natural, we can't allow it to overtake us. We have to turn our cares over to Jesus and allow him to handle them. (I Peter 5:7)
