With his great power the LORD warned me not to follow the road which the people were following. He said, “Do not join in the schemes of the people and do not be afraid of the things that they fear. Remember that I, the LORD Almighty, am holy; I am the one you must fear.”
The Lord is our Maker, make Him the object of your fear and stand in awe of His supreme power, which overshadows the fear of our enemies.
I will bring the rest of my people home from the lands where I have scattered them, and they will grow into a mighty nation. I promise to choose leaders who will care for them like real shepherds. All of my people will be there, and they will never again be frightened.
Jeremiah 23:3-4 (CEV)
Biblical Truth: Though we were lost and afraid, we are now confident and rejoice in Gods mercy to gather His church.
“Their gods are like helpless scarecrows in a cucumber field! They cannot speak, and they need to be carried cause they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of such gods, for they can neither harm you nor do you any good.” Lord, there is no one like you! For you are great, and your name is full of power. Who would not fear you, O King of nations? That title belongs to you alone! Among all the wise people of the earth and in all the kingdoms of the world, there is no one like you.
Jeremiah 10:5-7 (NLT)
Biblical Truth: Who could think to worship anyone besides the God whose kingdom rules over all things! Our God is the living God and eternal King, be devoted and worship Him alone for there is no one like Him. He has power over all things.
Tell Ahaz, ‘Be careful. Be calm and don’t worry. Don’t let those two men, Rezin and Pekah son of Remaliah, scare you. Don’t be afraid of their anger or Aram’s anger, because they are like two barely burning sticks that are ready to go out. They have made plans against you, saying, “Let’s fight against Judah and tear it apart. We will divide the land for ourselves and make the son of Tabeel the new king of Judah.” But I, the Lord God, say, “Their plan will not succeed; it will not happen,”’
Isaiah 7:4-7 (NCV)
Biblical Truth: Do not let the anger of those that are against God cause you to be afraid or worry, their threats are ultimately snuffed out. God is our consuming fire that is able to extinguish fear and worry.
