Whom shall I fear?
PDF file: do-not-fear-scriptures
Above is a link to my original attempt to list all the scriptures which encourage us not to fear. This is by no means an exhaustive list.
Today this scripture came to mind which is not on that list:
The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked advance against me to devour[a] me,
it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
It doesn’t matter how big our problem is, because God is bigger; it doesn’t matter if we are alone or not because God is always with us, so we are never really alone; it doesn’t matter how many enemies we have because The God of angel armies is on our side, cheering us on, sending his angels to ride along with us and defeat our enemies. Those who are for us are greater than those against us as long as we depend and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
One thing I recommend for you. This one thing I encourage you to do. Read the Word of God. Read the Bible and find scriptures which confirm for you that God is for you, supporting you, encouraging you, leading you, guiding and instructing you. The list is endless of the promises that God has in His Word.
“I know who goes before me. I know who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side.” So I will not be afraid of tomorrow. I will not be afraid of that interview for my dream job. I will not be afraid of people I need to face. I will not be afraid of failure, rejection, sickness, loneliness or anything else. God is with me and nothing can separate me from his love.
Having done all then, stand firm on His promise to never leave or forsake you. Stand firm on His promise to be near you and constantly comfort you when you need it.
Go with God my friend. And as it says in Ps. 27:13-14 Be confident that you will see the goodness of the Lord. Take heart, be of good courage, wait for the Lord.
