Do Not Fear, I Am With You
2 Kings 20; Isaiah 38,39; Psalm 75; 1 Peter 3
“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.”
Fear is an enemy of every overcomer in Christ. Fear takes our eyes off Christ and places them on others, ourselves or our circumstances. Fear drains our confidence, our strength and our capacity to act. The promise of God is that he is with every child of his. His invitation is to acknowledge his presence and his lordship in our lives as our God. We are invited to receive his strength and assistance. God promises to lift us up and hold us with his righteous right hand. The same hand that parted the Red Sea, defeated armies, and raised Jesus from the dead is ready to take our hand and lift us up. Let’s refocus on Jesus, reach out our hands and call on the Lord our God. His strength, his help and his right hand are waiting.
Father God, you are my strength this day. I will not fear for you are with me. Thank you for your hand on my life today. Be glorified in me.
