I Love to write for God. Each week, I write messages and share the word of God with anyone who will read what I write. God has always been my inspiration. Even in trouble times, he can get you though anything. This is what my messages are all about.
Finding Freedom from Fear - Day 2
Isaiah 41:10, 13, 14
God spoke these encouraging words to His people to help them endure captivity. God assured His people that He would protect them in the here and now, in the present distress they were experiencing. No doubt God’s promise of freeing His people from the coming captivity was very encouraging, especially to the true believers who were to endure the Babylonian captivity. But they needed far more than just a distant, future hope of deliverance. Righteous believers needed to know that God was with them day by day in their present painful circumstances. So God met their need and gave them a most wonderful promise: whether in the present or in the future and in whatever circumstances, God’s people were not to fear. His encouraging words to His people of old are also for His people living today. He gives three reasons why, as believers, we should not be anxious or afraid.
First, we are not to fear because He Himself will be with us (v.10). He will strengthen and help us and uphold us with His right hand—His righteous, victorious hand.
Second, we are not to fear because He will hold our right hands and help us as we face our enemies (v.13). Note the close relationship being stressed here: the Lord tells you that He is “your God” and that He will take “hold of your right hand.” He will “help you.” Meditating on this promise should give enormous encouragement to you when you are facing difficult circumstances and hardships.
Third, we are not to fear because He is our Redeemer (v.14). He has redeemed us with the blood of His very own Son. And He will protect us and give us everything we need (Romans 8:32).
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. Luke 22:19-20 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/luk.22.19-20.KJV Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 16:24-25 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.16.24-25.KJV
I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Isaiah 43:25 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/isa.43.25.KJV Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/1co.13.4-5.KJV Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Hebrews 12:14-15 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/heb.12.14-15.KJV
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/rom.12.1.KJV
