He Has Said, So We May Say
In our last few devotionals, we have been talking about fear, and how to be free from it. Today, I want to give you a final thought to consider on fear. It is based on Hebrews 13:5-6,
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." So we may boldly say: "The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"
I want you to notice what the Bible says, He Himself has said…So we may boldly say. God says something, so you can say something.
What does God say? He says He will never leave you. He says He will never forsake you. As a result you can say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"
When you understand that God will never leave you or forsake you, you can live without fear. And that freedom from fear will be reflected in both your actions and in your speech.
What are you facing today? Would you be afraid if God was standing beside you saying, "It's alright. I am here"? Well He is with you! He said He would never leave you or abandon you! You may not see or feel Him, but He is with you—now and always.
It is time to start acting and speaking like you believe it.
Boldly say, "The Lord is helping me! I will not fear!"
You don’t have to fully understand the things that happen to know God is good. Even in your most dire hardships and pain, He knows your frustrations and He promises to show Himself good in your life!
