Day 1 of 7

Fear


Isaiah 41:10-13

10 Do not be afraid—I am with you! I am your God—let nothing terrify you! I will make you strong and help you; I will protect you and save you. 11 Those who are angry with you will know the shame of defeat. Those who fight against you will die 12 and will disappear from the earth. 13 I am the LORD your God; I strengthen you and tell you, “Do not be afraid; I will help you.”

It is human nature to fear. Many of the men and women in the Bible, even heroes, were afraid. God promised his strength and help in Isaiah 41:10-13. His promise is for you, too.
