Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
God encouraged the people of Israel through Isaiah and said don’t be afraid and discouraged. He is saying them to be calm, do not be fearful or don’t have uneasy anticipation of the future for He is able to strengthen them. Only God alone can strengthen His people and help them. He loves us so much that He has given us His son and redeemed us to live a victorious life. Yes, victory over sin, death, fear, discouragement, anxieties, sorrow and many more for His glory! God called us to abide in His everlasting love and receive His promises!
Today, the world that we are living in is full of terror and evil, this world is not going to be better anymore. But, God called you and me to live positive in this negative world by abiding in Him. In the last days, because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:12,13 Be strong and of good courage, God wants you to stand firm by His grace and the power of the Holy Spirit. It is possible to live a victorious life in our Lord Jesus Christ as He lives in us, the hope of glory!
One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” So Paul stayed for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God. Acts 18:9-11 Amen! God will do what He want to do in your life, simply trust God and have faith in Him. He is able to fulfill each and every plan that He has predestined in your life for His glory. Always keep yourself in God’s love.
