Do Not Be Afraid


DO NOT BE AFRAID,  for I am with you.  Hear Me saying Peace, be still to your restless heart.  No matter what happens, I will never leave you or forsake you.  Let this assurance soak into your mind and heart, until you overflow with Joy.   Though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, you need not fear!


The media relentlessly proclaim bad news for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  A steady diet of their fare will sicken you.  Instead of focusing on fickle, ever-changing news broadcasts, tune into the living Word–the One who is always the same.  Let Scripture saturate your mind and heart, and you will walk steadily along the path of Life.  Even though you don’t know what will happen tomorrow, you can be absolutely sure of your ultimate destination.  I hold you by your right hand, and afterward I will take you into Glory.


      Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still! ”  And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.   Mark 4:39


     Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.  Deuteronomy 31:6


    Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.    Psalm 46:2


  Yet I am always with you; You hold me by my right hand.  You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.

Psalm 73:23-24
