For I am the LORD, your God, who grasp your right hand; It is I who say to you, “Fear not, I will help you.” – Isaiah 41:13
When God asks us to do something, our natural reaction will most likely be fear. Fear of the unknown, of rejection, of ridicule, of failure, the list goes on. It’s OK to be afraid. He never chastises anyone because they are afraid to do something that He asks of them. He will however, correct someone who runs away or disobeys Him. So today if you are standing at the edge of the cliff between obedience and self-preservation, take this verse to heart. Imagine that He is standing with you right there on that precipice. He takes your hand and says, “Remember child, I am the LORD your GOD. I am the one who is saying this to you and not anyone else: Don’t be afraid because I am the one who is helping you.” – Commentary by Sarine Thomas
Heavenly Father, you know I am afraid, but I trust in you. Help me to overcome my fear and step out in obedience to you. Amen.
