FEAR NOT!

Welcome to purposeful living today. 


Life is meaningful when it is lived in alignment with God's  Purpose and plan.



And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8).


“Fear not!” “Be not afraid!” Did you know that there are approximately 365 variations of the statement in scripture? 

There is a message of reassurance for each day of the year.

And yet, we live in a world of fear. All around us, news briefs highlight incidents of terror, fear, attacks, and violence. It is natural for us to be afraid. We fear for our safety, for the safety of those whom we love.

For some, violence is not a great fear. “Fear not!” David reminds us, in Psalm 56 – “I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?” (vs 11). What can they do? Our natural- self responds, ‘lots’ – mere mortals can attack, hurt, and damage my body, my ego, my spirit.

Jesus reminded the disciples not to fear, time, and time again. “Don’t be troubled. You trust in God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:1-2)
Some suggest that our fears are connected to our self-esteem and how we view and understand our identity. I’ve often wondered if all of the problems of war, gangs, and terror are rooted in peoples’ desire to prove that they have value and worth. Many of us claim our identity and strength in what we can do, who we know, or our position; when in reality, our true source of this is found in Christ.

In this season of COVID 19 that has ravaged the world killing so many, the thought that comes to many is nothing but fear. But why can we be afraid when God tells us constantly from the beginning to the end of scripture that we should “fear not”! As long as we remain in the secret place which is a place of fellowship with God through worship, studying of Gods Word, prayers and the likes of them, we constantly dwell under the shadow of God and in this protection, no evil whatsoever can come near us; for God is the greatest and the mightiest!  

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua 1:9).

Are you overwhelmed by what is happening in the world today? Are you worried and anxious about your life? Are you afraid of what the future holds for you? Don't give up! God reminds you today that you should fear not! His love for you knows no bound!! You are loved by God the Father more than you think or know, more than anyone in this world can love you! He loves you regardless of your past and your mistakes and your weaknesses!!! You must have and develop a relationship with God to be found in Him and enjoy all that you are and have in Him!
You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you to forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today that I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus' name. Amen.

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible-believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
