Do Not Fear

March 21, 2018

So do not fear; for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right Hand. Isaiah 41:10 NIV

I’m afraid, Lord – this world is unpredictable, scary.

It feels so out of control.

You are with me – You never leave.

You hold all things together.

Peace is the promise.

I find rest in You, Lord.

The Name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10

I can’t see around the corner.

The future is bathed in shadows – certain uncertainty, the great unknown.

You are with me.

You promise to hold me and never let go. Click To Tweet

I am not dismayed.

You tell me not to be afraid or let my heart be troubled.

You overcame the world.

Nothing surprises you.

You never look away.

I cast my cares on the One who never fails.

Though the earth gives way, I fear not.

He is my ever present help in times of trouble.

His Spirit gives me power and love.

Power to love.

I keep my eyes on You, Lord.

I will not be shaken.

Perfect peace is where You keep me.

You answer my distress.

Your promise preserves.

Nothing separates perfect love.

You anchor my soul and make a way through the wilderness.

Your righteous right Hand upholds me.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
