This 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.

This Week’s Memory Verse:
And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation: Genesis 46:3 KJV
This Week’s Message:
I am El (Mighty God) the God (Elohiym–the One True God, Jehovah) fear not.
In this verse God is telling Jacob three things:
- that he should not fear because He, God, is the same God that Jacob’s father, Isaac knew, loved, trusted and followed. God was in a sense telling Jacob to recall how He, God, had always been there for Jacob and his father Isaac in the past and that he would always be there now for Jacob.
- God was telling Jacob where to go in the present time–He was giving Jacob direction for his life.
- God was telling Jacob what He was going to do for him in the future. God was promising Jacob the same thing He had promised his father, Isaac.
God was showing Jacob He was there for him in the present just as He had been in the past and would be in the future. Jacob should not fear, but just trust God.
I feel this verse has a lot to teach us today. I feel God could also be speaking this to us believers as well. He is saying “Trust Me” I am Mighty God, the One True God, Jehovah, have no fear, I will direct your paths, I will show you where to go. I have plans for you for the future and they are good plans.
Let’s memorize this verse and repeat it to ourselves daily as a reminder that God is with us, just as He was with Jacob.
Blessings to you daily,
