Fear thou not; for I am with thee - Isaiah 41:10
Satan is continually trying to weaken our faith by fear. He is a great metaphysician and knows the paralyzing effect of fear-the great enemy of faith. If he can cause us to fear, he will stop us from trusting and hinder the very blessing we need. Job found the peril of fear and gives us the sorrowful testimony I feared a fear, and it came upon me (Job 3:25). Fear in the flesh is born of Satan, and if we would only take time to think a moment we would see that everything Satan says is founded upon a falsehood. He is the father of lies. Even his fears are falsehoods and his terrors ought to serve as encouragements. When Satan tells you, therefore, that some ill is going to come, you may quietly look in his face and tell him he is a liar. Instead of ill, goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life. And then turn to your blessed Lord and say, What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee (Psalm 56:3).
Every fear is distrust, and trust is the remedy for fear.
[ Prayer for the Day ]
Lord, I trust in You. Every thing in this world and in time is under your hand, nothings can move or any event can occur without your notice. I am sorry for the times I have not trusted You and let fear come into me. Forgive me and help me build my faith in You. I ask this in Jesus' Name. Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
