Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:8

Deuteronomy 31:8This Week’s Scripture:  And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8 KJV

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is very similar to last week’s.
Last week Moses was speaking to all of Israel before they were to cross the Jordan River.
Here, in this verse, Moses is speaking to Joshua, who he has appointed to be the new leader of Israel. Joshua will be the one to lead the people across the River.

Joshua has big shoes to fill as he is replacing Moses as leader. Joshua at this point is probably getting a bit fearful, perhaps doubting his ability, and Moses sensing this, encourages him.
Moses personally calls Joshua out and reminds him in front of all Israel that he is to “Fear Not” for the LORD (Jehovah=the Supreme God) will be going before him.

In essence Moses is saying” “Don’t worry or be afraid Joshua. You can do this because the LORD is going before you into that River. The LORD (Jehovah) will be with you every step of the way.
The LORD (the Supreme God) is not going to fail you, nor forsake you. Don’t let fear overtake you. Don’t doubt. Just trust the LORD and go forth!”

Believers, are we not all leaders in some way? Are we not supposed to lead others to the LORD? Are we not supposed to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ?
Think about it. Memorize this verse and use it to encourage yourself and to perhaps encourage other leaders that you know.

Yes, the LORD is always with us. We need not fear new horizons, for He will go before us to show us the way. Let’s not fear, nor doubt. We can trust Him.

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 20:3

Deuteronomy 20:3This Week’s Scripture:
…let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; Deuteronomy 20:3 KJV

This Week’s Message:
As the Israelites are preparing to cross the Jordan into the new land that God, Jehovah, the One True God, has promised to give them, Moses is telling them, once again, not to fear their enemies for God is with them.
He is telling them not to let fear overtake them, not to be afraid, not to faint, or tremble or be terrified. He is reminding them that God is going before them to prepare the way and to fight for them.

Believers, we can learn from this. In Christ, we are God’s people and we should be applying this verse to our current situations in life. Whatever we are facing, wherever we are going, we should remember that God is with us. He is going before us to prepare the way. We should not let fear of the unknown overtake us. We should not let our hearts faint. We should not tremble, nor be terrified of our enemies, or our challenges. We should fear not and walk forward in faith, trusting in the Lord God to protect us and guide us always.

Blessings to you daily as you “Fear Not” !

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 1:21

Deuteronomy 1:21This Week’s Scripture:
Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged. Deuteronomy 1:21 KJV

This Week’s Message:
Moses was speaking to the Israelites, refreshing their memories of when he had told them what the LORD God had said for them to do.
He was reminding them that the LORD God had told them to go up and possess the land because He, the LORD God, had set it up for them to be able to take it.
Moses was saying “Remember, I told you that you should fear not and neither be discouraged, yet you did not listen and you did not obey. You rebelled and did not go because you were afraid!”

What is the LORD God telling you to do today? What is He setting before you? Is He telling you to go forth and fear not? Is He saying do not be discouraged ?
If so, do not be like the Israelites. Listen to Him, trust Him and obey Him.
Go forth believing in Him and do not fear.
