Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.' Isaiah 41:10 (NASB)
Have you experienced a life-changing event that rocked your world upside down?
A sudden demise in a relationship or loved one, a fatal accident, a sudden diagnosis, feeling of being alone all your life? Do fear tend to take over your life, as Faith begins to crumble?
If so, my Friend this message is for you.
I was 22 weeks pregnant with my triplets and had to rush myself to the hospital one morning because I noticed some unusual happenings. I got admitted and was examined by a group of high-risk doctors.
Every one of them told me if I am to deliver today my babies won’t be viable and they will be born with long-term defects.
Fear started to creep in slowly around me. I prayed, “Lord, I need your strength in my weakest moment right now. Please speak to me.“
The TV was playing nearby, and I asked the nurse to help me change it to some other channel, she would flip to different channels until she clicked on a completely unusual channel. I noticed a man was preaching to an audience.
The preacher spoke not in English, but in my native language. The words echoed my ears as the preacher repeated the verse loud and clear,
“Fear Not, For I am with You”.
Tears streamed as I praised God for comforting me in what I thought was my darkest hour. There were so many movies, soap operas, sports channels- and yet God spoke to me that day in the monitor room in a language I was familiar with.
GOD STILL SPEAKS
Our God is the God of all languages, all nations, all race, and all mankind.
He will speak to us either through a person, through our circumstances, through music, in the middle of our messes, or through a Message.
Seek Him and you will find Him near.
The storms of life and fiery trials will most certainly come, but the Lord says through all that He will be with us and will not let any of those consume, destroy, or overwhelm us.
The Lord says, ”Do Not Fear “, “ No Temais”(Spanish), “не бойтесь(Russian), “Non Temere”(Italian)," keine Angst(German), "faire sans crainte(French) Isaiah 41:10
[ Insert your name and say it aloud in the language you are familiar with]
4 weeks later, at 26 weeks I gave birth to my triplets. I saw their fragile 1-pound body in the NICU but it was God's Promise "Fear Not" that sustained me.
--Fear not, God is with you in your daily struggles, in your weaknesses, in your heartbreaks.
--Fear Not, God is with you as you feel drowned in your sorrows, and in your fiery trials.
--Fear Not, God is with you as you tread alone or begin take a stumble and fall.
--Fear not, God is with you during your sickness, and storms. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Here are 4 blessed Bible verses to comfort your fearful heart
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Psalm 34:4 I sought the Lord, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.
Isaiah 41:13 "For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee."
Psalm 66:12 We went through fire and through water, Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance.(NASB)
What is that one thing that you are afraid of facing, fellow traveler?
Does it cripple your daily activities, relationship, and mind?
Living by Faith and not fear,
