Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Thoseare some very reassuring words! God wanted Israel to stop being fearful of their enemies and to depend and act upon His promises. He wanted them to wholeheartedly trust that He would always be present, He would never let them down and that He would never abandon them. While people have the potential of forsaking us and letting us down, our God does not. God has not changed since He made this promise. Do you remember that Jesus is always the same? Always. Always! ALWAYS!
What are you fearing today? Did you know that God knew we would struggle with fear? As the loving Heavenly Father, He tells us how to deal with our fears. He does not merely tell us to stop fearing, but promises that He is the antithesis to all our fears.
- To embrace the will of God for our life…God is the One Who is going to go with you.
- That our employer, our national leaders, our health, our retirement may fail us…God has never and will never fail you.
- That those we love or invest in might forsake us…God will never forsake you.
May God give you strength and courage as you trust in Him today!
