GOD IS ALWAYS WITH ME; I WILL NOT BE AFRAID

GOD IS ALWAYS WITH ME; I WILL NOT BE AFRAID


Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. – Deuteronomy 31:6,8


For just a moment, let's talk about what we fear. One word says it all; we fear the future. No one's afraid of the past. The past creates other problems – like regrets and consequences. And no one is exactly afraid of the present. We might be upset about the present, but we don't fear it because we know it. We fear at this moment what will happen next. "Something's up ahead and I don't want it."


Fear expresses the opposite of all that Christianity is to be. Fear is the contradiction of faith. Faith says, "Whatever it is, I'll be okay because of God." Fear says, "It's not going to be okay", and doesn't think much about God at all.


The antidote for fear is the promise of God's presence. God is with you. "For He has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.' So we can confidently say, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me? (Hebrews 13:5-6). God is with me wherever I go. How could I be afraid?


Let the calm, strong assurance of our first great and precious promise settle down in your soul: God is always with me. Therefore I will not fear.


To the believer in Jesus Christ, this first promise is that God is with us individually. There is a special sense in which God is with each of us personally as one of His children. He is like the closest friend sitting next to us in a way that is different from what an unbeliever experiences. This is the sense in which with us also means for us as in Romans 8:31, What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?


I've saved this verse for the last because this is the one I want you to memorize: "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you" (Deuteronomy 31:6). It's all there in that verse, isn't it? Whoever the "them" is, they don't have a chance! – James Macdonald
