Our Reason to Have No Fear


If we are fearing this world, then we need to stop! God's intention for us is to live in peace.

"Do not call conspiracy everything that these people call conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it. The LORD Almighty is the One you are to regard as Holy, He is the One you are to fear, He is the One you are to dread.” Isaiah 8:12-13 NIV

God has a plan! God is in control! God is on His throne and He is not surprised by recent acts of terrorism. He can work through this violence, like He has all the other incidents, to achieve His Sovereign will. Trust Him and see the good He is about to do!

I know the world is scary right now. I heard one of our boys say recently, “I’m not ready to die. I want to grow up, have a job, a wife, and some children.” I assured him I wanted grandchildren and much as he wanted his own kids! I don’t know what the future holds, but as has been said, I know who holds the future!

My God does not waiver because of tragedies in His life. He makes them fit! I don’t know how. I don’t know when. I don’t know to what extent I will be involved in those plans, but I know He works them for good.

I know that fact for two reasons. One, I know it because that is what He told us in His Word. He “works all things for good”. Two, I know it because I have seen it come true over and over in my life. Just when I thought things couldn’t get worse, they did! And, still God produced an abundant crop through the trials in my life.

If you are fearing this world, then you need to stop! God intends us to live in peace. Not that the world around us is peaceful, but that those who know the Son are free indeed, and in Him we find peace. Like the calm in the midst of a storm, so are we in the midst of godless days. We are secure because the God who calls us is secure. We are safe because we are in His hands.

Do you believe that today? Shouldn’t that be our comfort?
