#FEARLESS365 is a yearlong study of God’s commandment to us to live without fear. For 365 days, we will focus on one scripture and volunteers from all over the world will share their personal thoughts and what God has shared with them on the specific verse. For more info… go here.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. 2 Chronicles 32:7, NIV
Regardless of our circumstances our God is powerful and mightier than any of the earthly armies that can attempt to stand against us. We can choose to dwell in the worries of today with our circumstances or we can come to understand that God is Spiritual and we need to pray in the Spirit of Holiness to a Holy God who is mighty to save! He’s a supernatural God with legions of angels at his disposal to outweigh, outdo, outmaneuver, outsmart the enemy and to give us the victory over anything and anyone that can come against us. God is our protector, our healer, our tower of strength on whom we can lean on in times of trouble and our fortress where we can take refuge. We need not concern ourselves by the things that we see because our God is also very approachable. We can stand in his presence with full confidence that he will hear our prayers and petitions. He loves us like a father and we are the sons whom he favours. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
Whenever we have trouble we need to not fear. There is no being more superior to God who tells us that he is for us and not against us and that we shouldn’t fear. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10. When I hear about his righteous right hand I think of Jesus who in his faithfulness to God the Father gave up his life for our sins. What he did wasn’t without hardship. God doesn’t say we won’t go through trials in life, but he does say that He is with us. We aren’t alone and we certainly are loved by a worthy God who gave his own son so that we can take our rightful place with him as heirs to the kingdom.
