Fear Not

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

“What makes you, you?” This was one of the questions asked on one of our sessions at Momentum Ministry Conference 2019. The speaker told us to share the answer to our seatmate, to which my partner immediately replied, “fearless.” I know my seatmate, and she is, indeed, fearless. I don’t mean that she doesn’t feel any fear, but she isn’t controlled by fear. How can we be free from fear? If we look at our Bible, we read a lot of encouragement about not being afraid about tomorrow, about life, about other people, and others. We, as humans, tend to fear a lot. But God also addressed it many times in the Bible to free us from free by giving us an assurance – God is with us, God is our rescuer, and God loves us.
