The Bible is replete with scriptures related to fear. “Fear not” or “do not be afraid” is in the Bible approximately 365 times; that’s one for every day of the year. We learned in yesterday’s devotion that fear is learned behavior and unlearning to think fearfully is the way we can defeat it in our lives. I have given you two of seven reasons not to fear. They were:
- God is your shield and great reward; Genesis 15:1
- God has made provision in and for your famine season; 1 Kings 17:13
What follows are two more of the seven for your meditation and consideration today.
- God will supply His gracious resources in ‘more than enough’ quantity in answer to your needs.
2 Kings 6:16 – So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
- God is your strength in weakness.
Isaiah 41:10 – “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Meditate on these two realities and receive a blessed assurance today!
