God Is With You
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. Isaiah 41:10
In today’s world, so many people are filled with fear. The news that we read or watch on television reports to us the events that are happening in our society, which can make a person afraid of their surroundings. The average person is scared to go shopping, to the movies or even out to eat. What happened to a person’s peace of mind? FEAR! However, as Christians we must understand that God is with us and there is nothing to fear.
Deuteronomy 31:8- And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.
God promises that He will be with you despite all the obstacles that you are facing.
Isaiah 43:2- When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned nor shall the flame scorch you.
The enemy will put problems in your life to make you fearful. Don’t let fear capture your heart because that’s exactly what the enemy wants to happen. Satan knows if he can overtake you with fear, then your faith in God will be shattered. This is the reason we need to hold on to God’s promises and believe in them. God is faithful to His Word and will accomplish what He has already said.
Isaiah 55:11- So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth. It shall not return to Me void. But it shall accomplish what I please. And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
So, if God will accomplish His Word and He has promised to us through His Word that He will be with us, then we have nothing to fear. The Lord stands beside us during the difficult times that we may face on this earth. He will never leave nor forsake us. We are His children and He loves us dearly. It is important to always remember that God is with you.
