Do Not Fear or Worry

God is waiting to show you the way.

God is waiting to show you the way.

2 Chronicles 20:16-18 The Voice (VOICE)

16 Tomorrow, they will travel through the ascent of Ziz. Meet them at the end of valley before the wilderness of Jeruel. There, I will be watching. 17 Stand and watch, but do not fight the battle. There, you will watch the Eternal save you, Judah and Jerusalem.”

Do not fear or worry. Tomorrow, face the army and trust that the Eternal is with you.

    18 Jehoshaphat bowed his head low, and all the assembly fell prostrate before the Eternal and worshiped Him with reverence. They trusted the Lord completely.

    In one form or another, God admonishes us not to fear 365 times. That is one for each day. Fear, worry, doubt are all signs of disbelief. God has also said that He would never leave us or forsake us. He has never broken one promise that He has made. He is an amazing God who is able to deliver His children from any difficulty. Yes, it is true that He allows us to go through hard times, but that testing is not for His benefit, it is for our benefit. He already knows what we will do, but He wants us to know as well. If we truly believe that God is always with us, whom should we fear? Since God gave us His only Son, doesn’t it seem reasonable and believable that He would give us anything else that we needed?

One thought on “Do Not Fear or Worry

  1. Yes, it’s a circle of love, isn’t it — in that God wants us to be more like Him, so He brings or allows these problems in our life — so we will trust in Him more — and as we trust Him, we realize that He not only has allowed this, but He will actually fight the battle for us — if we just believe Him enough to do so. So His love for us brings us into the battle — and also wins the battle! Amen!
