Isaiah 41:12-14. NCBV.

12 You will look for your enemies,
    but you will not find them.
Those who fought against you
    will vanish completely.
13 I am the Lord your God,
    who holds your right hand,
and I tell you, ‘Don’t be afraid.
    I will help you.’
14 You few people of Israel who are left,
    do not be afraid even though you are weak as a worm.
I myself will help you,” says the Lord.
    “The one who saves you is the Holy One of Israel.

God says a lot about fear in the Bible, Their are both good and bad fear. It is true that fear can be a good thing, for the Bible tells us that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Also, we teach our children to be cautious around strangers, to be wary of dangerous things that could harm them as well as being careful of choosing friends. When we discipline a child we are actually using fear as a tool to help the child learn right from wrong and the consequences of doing that which is not appropriate as 5hey grow in life. So, I don’t want to give fear a bad omen in this message, but there is a fear that is harmful to us as a child of God and God forbids that we allow our lives to be thrown into such conflicts, knowing that the Lord is with us at all times.

Fear is a torment, it has actually deter many people from attempting to try but God has gone to the end of the earth to make sure that you will always know that, no matter what, He has got you covered. He will keep you at rest, He will strengthen you, and He will see you through the tough times. In everything you do, every trial that you face, and in every challenge, that comes your way, you should know that you have no reason to fret or worry for God is with you.

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1). It is the Lord’s doing that we are not consumed for His mercies endures forever. The situations in most nations now calls for diligency in every aspect of our lives “Everything is permissible,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible,” but not everything builds up. (1Corinthians 10:23). We should be careful of what we indulge in now irrespective of what’s going on in our society now, we must be conscious of the fact that we have an advocate who intercedes for us. Jesus Christ is our Advocate with the Father. The word advocate has Latin roots meaning “one who pleads for another.” Jesus Christ our Saviour pleads for us, using understanding, justice, and mercy. Knowing this can fill us with love and gratitude for His Atonement.

Remember our bible reading, Isaiah 41:13 He said we should not be afraid for He will help us. Be confident that no situation that is insurmountable. Be encourageous my dear friends for God Never Gives Up on YOU.

Thanks for Reading And Happy New Month. SHALOM!! Blessing Onugha ❤️
