MFM Daily Devotional 18 April 2023 MESSAGE

We started looking at the comforting word from God that says, “Fear not”. We face many trials as human beings and these can bring a lot of fear into our hearts. Sometimes, you may not know what to do, but the word of God for you is “Fear not. “Isaiah 41:8-10 highlighted reasons you should live life free from fear.

First you need not to fear because God’s presence is with you. Isa.41:10 says, “Fear thou not for I am with thee. Beloved, If God is with you, who can be against you? God’s presence is always with you need not fear. Secondly, God has established a relationship with you. The same Isa. 41:10 says: “I am thy God.” If God is your God, beloved, you have everything. He has never failed and He will never fail or let you down. He is not a man that will promise heaven and earth, but when troubles come, He will back out.

Thirdly, He said, “I will strengthen thee.” Instead of leaving you to your troubles, He said, He will give you strength to overcome the storms of life. In Kings 19:1-8, when Jezebel threatened Elijah’s life, he fled, but God appeared and strengthened him in verse 5-8. Elijah went in the strength of the angelic food for forty days and forty nights. That same God is still alive and He is ready to strengthen you if you allow Him. God’s assurance of strength, help and victory over fear is certain.

The fourth reason why you should not fear is that God promised to uphold you with
His right hand of righteousness (Vs.10). The fifth reason is that God promised to help you. Isaiah 41:10 says, “I will help thee.” In Matthew 14:28-31, when Pater was about to sink because of fear, he cried unto Jesus and Jesus stretched forth His hands to help him. So also beloved, cry out to God in the face of whatever you are going through and He will bring you out of the sinking boat in your life.
