The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid?
If our God is for us, then who can be against us?
We sometimes feel that we are so afraid about worldly things. We are always left out so stressed because we are so afraid that we will disappoint someone or we will make a mistake.
If we’ll think that it’s not us but it is God who is working in our lives, we will not be afraid. God wants us to live our life with joy from Him. He doesn’t want us to mix it with emotional problems or any problems that we are getting from the desires to please the world. He wants us to live with peace in our hearts, knowing that whatever happens, when we die, we will come home to Him in heaven.
If we fear worldly things, the fear that is intended for Him will be replaced. God said that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. If this fear will be replaced by a different kind of fear, we will lose the opportunity to get wisdom, too. We will live our lives in this world guessing and always asking what will happen next. We will always be afraid and stressed.
But why not put our confidence to our God? He will fight our battles and we know that whatever happens, we will not be afraid because He is with us. No weapon formed against us shall prosper if we are with the Lord. We need to walk with Him all the days of our lives and we will boldly confess that we will not fear anyone because we are with the Lord. We are living for His glory and we are His children. We will overcome the world and the world will see how great our God is.
Let us live our lives with the fear of God in our hearts. We will not be shaken by anyone or by any circumstances because He will fight our battles. Whoever is the reason we are living with fear right now, we need to pray to God and ask Him to drive out that fear and help us to be always reminded that He is bigger than any problems or anyone else in this world. We will live joyfully and stress-free knowing that the Lord is with us.
Lord, we thank You that once again You comforted us. You alone are God. We will not be afraid of anything else in this world for we know that You are with us. No weapon formed against us shall prosper because You are our shield Oh God. You will fight for us. We will only focus in glorifying You and working out our salvation. The only reason we live is to worship You Lord. Thank You for everything. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
