My Dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The blessed word for today is from the book of Isaiah 43:5, “Fear not for I am with you”.
Today we see that fear in a person hinders the growth and progress of his life. But today the Lord is telling to you, “Fear not for I am with you.” God will not leave you halfway and desert you when you go through troubles. When you face difficulties, He will not leave you alone. He will remain with you. He will take part in your troubles, difficulties, and the pain that you go through. He will protect you in times of trouble. Like the bird hovering about, the Lord will deliver and defend you from your problems, and enemies. So, you need not fear or fret regarding your difficult situation.
Many of you reading this message are going through the fear of death, fear of your future and the fear of losing your job. You may have a constant fear that they will take you out of your job, which could even obstruct you from doing your job sincerely. Never mind if they take away your job. God will open new doors for you. He will create new jobs for you. If one door is shut then He will open another door for you. God says in Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
In the Bible, we can see that Mary, was crying over the death of her brother Lazarus. He is the Lord who took part in her sorrow and brought her brother back to life and wiped away her tears. Likewise, The Lord is truthful enough to restore all that you have lost.
The children of God must not go weary. You should be fierce in the spirit and be strong. You will face many challenges in your life, but you must be bold enough to face such challenges. The Lord will give you the needed strength, and ability to overcome those challenges. The Lord has told you that He will be with you always as he was with Moses. He will keep you as a blessing to many. So be happy and cheerful in the Lord.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, you said, “Fear not, I am with you.” I thank you for giving such a powerful word of God to my children. Take away all the spirit of fear from them and give them the spirit of courage. Lord perform a miracle in all those matters, that caused them to fear. And help them to know that you are there with them at all times especially when they are left alone. You were with David, and so he increased day by day. Be with my children and give them an increase day by day. Not only that, Lord you were with Joshua, and his splendour spread across the nation. I bless and pray that my children will become achievers so that their splendour would spread across many nations.
