Fresh Hope – 11th May 2017

The Bible records the words ‘fear not’ 365 times…that’s once for every day of the year.

Have you ever stopped to ask why God continually had to remind us to fear not? Is it not because we fear so much?

What are you fearing today?

Whatever it may be, here are just a few verses that will encourage you to stand firm today…

Psalm 118:6-7  The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? The Lord is with me; he is my helper. I look in triumph on my enemies.

Isaiah 41:10  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.

Deuteronomy 20:4  For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.’

Deuteronomy 31:6  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.’

Proverbs 29:25  Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.

Psalm 27:1  The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?

Hebrews 13:5-6  Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?’

2 Timothy 1:7  For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

DO NOT FEAR!
