DO NOT BE AFRAID! – Isaiah 41:10 Devotional
“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.”
In today’s Scripture, God instructs Isaiah (as well as His children of all ages) what our part in serving Him should be. Alongside of our instruction He provides the promise of reward for obeying Him.
In this verse we are only to do two things: we are to not be afraid and we are not be dismayed. That my dear friend is easier said than done. There are many things surrounding us that can easily cause us to fear. In essence we have the choice to trust God or be crushed by the circumstances of life.
Our part is to do two things. I should say that there are two things we are not to do. We are told not to fear and not be dismayed. Easier said than done! We live in a time when there are threats from every side, so how are we to be brave?
The answer to our having courage in the face of danger is given by the Lord. First of all He is our God! He is the creator and sustainer of all! He promises us that He will uphold us with His strength and power. Wow! What assurance!
Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
