Do Not Fear...

Isa 41:10 Do not fear; for I am with you; be not dismayed; for I am your God. I will make you strong; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness. Isa 41:11 Behold, all those who were angered against you shall be ashamed and confounded; they shall be as nothing. And those who fight with you shall perish. Isa 41:12 You shall seek them, and shall not find them; men warring against you shall be as nothing, and as ceasing. Isa 41:13 For I, Jehovah your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Sometimes life can be scary and unpredictable and disappointing and great all at the same time.  It is important that we learn how to believe and trust in God the Father at all times.  We can be wronged by people and yet God still holds us in His hand.  Those people that choose to fight with us, to betray us, to attack those of us that are of the household of Faith, the Household of the Living God, will perish.  Their lives, their hopes, their dreams, the things their hands will touch will be as nothing.

We will face persecution because of our Faith in Jesus Christ.  We will face persecution because we are followers and disciples of Him.  We will be hated for His name's sake, just as He was hated.  The world wants no part of something that it does not understand.  The world wants no part of something that will shed light and bring conviction to its sinful nature. 

We must remember as we continue to fight the good fight what we are fighting for.  We must continue to shine our lights into the darkness of the world.  We must continue to seek righteousness and the face of God.  He is our protector.  He is our defender.  As we have heard many times... If God is for us, who can be against us?
