Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:6

ThisDueteronomy 31:6 Week’s Scripture:
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.  Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV


This Week’s Message:

This week’s verse is so uplifting and encouraging!
Moses is speaking to Israel just before they are to cross the Jordan River.
At this time they are feeling fearful because they are about to cross a river, go into a new land where they might face hardships, challenges and enemies, plus their wonderful leader, Moses, who has been leading them for many years, will not be going with them for God has chosen Joshua to be their leader.
They are facing a lot of changes and unknown circumstances.

Moses was telling the people:

  • Strengthen yourselves in mind, body and spirit so that you will prevail against all odds
  • Be brave and bold
  • Do not dread, tremble or resist
  • Do not stand in awe of the enemy

Why was Moses telling them this? He was reminding them of one important thing that they needed to never forget!
That the LORD=Jehovah = the existing One, the Supreme God, the One True God, Elohiym, is your God.
This LORD God goes with you, He walks with you. As you depart He comes alongside you. He proceeds with you.
As you move, He moves. He will not go away from you. He will not abandon you. He will not leave you alone.
So don’t be faint or feeble. Don’t become dishearted or worry or doubt.
He will hold you up. He will not fail and therefore, you will not fail.
As long as you walk with Him you will be safe and you will succeed!

What a great message for us today! Believers, this same LORD God is also our God. He has not changed. As He did for Israel He will do for us.
Memorize this verse and claim it for yourself! Do not fear nor be afraid as He leads and you walk with Him daily.

Fear Not Scripture: Exodus 20:20

Exodus 20:20 Fear NotThis Week’s Scripture:
And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. Exodus 20:20 KJV

This Week’s Message:
In verses previous to this verse we see that God (Elohiym–the One True God–Jehovah) is speaking out His Ten Commandments to His people.
After He speaks, the people see and hear signs of His presence.
Exodus 20:18-19 says: And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar
And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

The people were afraid. They had fear–but not the kind of fear that they should have had. They had earthly, fleshly fear.  They needed to have a godly fear. A fear of God which was reverent fear.
A healthy respect for God, reverencing Him for who He was. Showing honor to Him for His great power and authority.

Moses corrected them. He told them to “Fear Not” which meant do not be afraid in your flesh that God is come to harm you, but realize that He is speaking these things to you for your own good.
He wants to test you in these things so you will not sin, for He loves you and wants the best for you.

Let’s learn from this verse today. Let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves that we should have a healthy fear of God, which is a reverence for Him, respect for Him, awe for Him.
We should regard His authority and honor who He is. We should remind ourselves that He loves us and wants the best for us, therefore whatever He commands us to do is for our good.

Let’s realize how to “Fear Not” and do it daily.
