Fear Not

February 10, 2017

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. 

Fear Not

The Lord reminds us today how many times He has exhorted us through His Word not to fear.  Fear takes place when we see our surroundings from a position of the natural and not a position of faith.  When God exhorts us to “fear not”, He is exhorting us to get our eyes back upon Him who is our strength and our salvation. 

The Psalmist, King David expresses this in Psalms 56:4, “In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.”  David expresses here an important principle to victory in our lives and circumstances, “In God I will praise His Word.”  Exalting God’s Word and promises over our trials and afflictions is the greatest weapon that we have.  Then we are making the declaration of faith by the authority of God’s Word and our trust is in Him.  This has far more power than we often realize.  There are times we might expect immediate results.  That can and does happen, but many more times we have released a dynamic in heaven that goes to work in our declaration of faith according to the Word and the will of God.  That dynamic may work through the natural realm to affect our circumstances according to what we have praised God’s Word for.   It doesn’t mean that God didn’t hear and honor His Word.  Often it is when we look back in our past we can see how God has worked in our life those things we didn’t see any change in at the time.  Never take lightly the authority and the power of God’s Word.  We only live in a free and democratic country today because of it.  

Our fears are often present when our eyes are upon others and what we fear of them, rather than God.  This where it is imperative that we know who we are in Christ and take our stand and authority as believers and witnesses of the MOST HIGH GOD!  In Psalms 118:6, David says, “The LORD [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?”  We must realize that our life is hid in Christ, in God (Colossians 3:1-4).  For satan to touch us, he first must go through the Lord to do so.  

Remember that God has created you for a purpose and God will protect and even allow the enemy permission in the areas that will prepare you to fulfill your mission.  Listen to what David told his son Solomon when he passed the torch to him.  1 Chronicles 28:20 says, “And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do [it]: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, [even] my God, [will be] with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.” When we become secure in Christ in our revelation and in our faith in Him, we truly have no need to fear the world.  God has a purpose for our lives.  As we walk in obedience and faith to seek out and fulfill that purpose, we can know that God’s is moving on our behalf.  If God be for us, who can be against us?  

Put away all of your fears today.  Fix your eyes and your heart on Christ.  Fear not what men can do to you and praise God in His Word for it is your power and your authority.  “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Christ that loved us and gave Himself for us (Romans 8:37).”

Blessings,
