The Voice of Fear (2)
If you’re battling fear today, listen to these words from the God who loves you, protects you and promises to be with you. When there seems to be no way out, He says, ‘Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the [deliverance] of the Lord which He will work for you today.’ Notice the words, ‘He will work for you today.’ Start looking for evidence of His hand at work in your situation; that’s how your faith grows. When the problem looks too big, He says, ‘Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.’ (Deuteronomy 31:6 AMP) Stop and remind yourself whose company you’re in. The One ‘Who goes with you’ has never lost a battle, and He will win this one. When you feel like you can’t cope any more, He says, ‘...do not look around you…and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties...’ (Isaiah 41:10 AMP) Notice the words ‘harden you to difficulties.’ God usually doesn’t lift us out of the problem, He takes us through it and toughens us up. When you lose your peace of mind, He says, ‘Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance… continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace… which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds...’ (Philippians 4:6–7 AMP) Don’t listen to the voice of fear. God is with you today!
