Several times in the bible God tells us with certainty: “Do not be afraid!” Yet, as we stand deep in debt, down-sizing, depressed spouses and demanding children how can God seriously expect us not to be afraid?
Look at the end of the sentence. God is telling us not to be afraid because He’s got our backs! He is going to pay off those bills, keep us employed and help us maintain a positive upbeat attitude that will hopefully be passed on to our spouses, children and friends. He parted the red sea, spoke to us from a burning bush and sent His son to die for us so let’s not doubt His promises.
Today, stand tall; DO NOT BE AFRAID! God is going to fight your battles on your behalf … and you are going to come out on the other side victorious! Let’s give God thanks because today He is with you, just as he is with me … and we will NOT be afraid!
PS: Somebody out there needs to hear this today so pass it on 🙂
