What are you afraid of? It’s a question we’ve heard over and over again. Most people would answer with something like “snakes,” or “bees,” or even “the dark.” And then some aggressive person would tell you all too loudly that you need to face your fear and not let it define you.
Read Hebrews 13:5b-6 and Isaiah 51:12-13.
What do you honestly fear? Be real with God now and tell Him. Is it other people’s opinions, or losing someone you love, or even your own discomfort? Tell Him now.
Think about what these verses say. Here’s the truth: in light of our all-powerful God, whatever it is you’re afraid of is pathetically puny. That’s a good thing. Let God fill you with confidence in Him because He will never leave us nor forsake us. His grace is enough for us, more than enough actually. He protects us and holds us. Whom shall we fear?
“I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand—I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’”—Isaiah 51:16

Please help me see i’m forever in Your hands. Thank You for Your great love for me and for always protecting me. Thank You that You are with me and You are the only One i need to fear. Yes Lord, You will never leave me nor forsake me! You are God Almighty! In Your Son Jesus’ Name i pray. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Yes Lord, i’m saved by You! You hold my heart. Amen! You love me! i love You! Please help me love You more! Amen!
