This Week’s Scripture: And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage:
Joshua 10:25 KJV
This Week’s Message: Here we see Joshua telling the people of Israel, once again, to “Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage”
Joshua and his people of war and mighty men of valour, had previously fought and won two great battles, one of which was Jericho. because the LORD God had given victory. Now, Joshua and his troops had defeated five more cities and their Kings, because the LORD had told Joshua He was giving them into his hand to conquer. The LORD even listened to Joshua and made the sun and moon stand still for about a whole day. ( Read about it in Joshua 10:12 thru 10:14 )
So, Joshua again is telling the people of Israel to “Fear not” for the LORD would continue giving them victory over their enemies, as He had done, if they would remain loyal to Him and honor and obey Him.
And so shall the LORD do for us. In Christ we have the victory over sin and death and God will continue to protect, provide and give us victory over any enemy that might try to come against us, if we trust Him and obey Him daily.
Memorize this verse and “Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage” for the LORD is with you.
This 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.
This Week’s Scripture: And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake. Genesis 26:24 KJV
This Week’s Message: In this verse we see the LORD having a conversation with Isaac, the son of Abraham.
The LORD (Jehovah=One True God)–I AM–The God of Abraham–Says: “Fear Not”
Why?–Because of His Covenant Promise He says: “I am with thee, I will bless thee, I will multiply thy seed” The LORD is telling Isaac that He is his provider and protector in the present and in the future. He is guaranteeing Isaac that He remembers His Covenant that He made with Abraham and that He intends to keep His promise.
Well, believers, in Christ we can claim this verse for ourselves because Galatians 3:29 says:
“And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Therefore, let’s memorize this verse and claim it’s goodness. For in Christ, the LORD is our God, He is with us, He will bless us, and He will multiply our seed as well.
Give Him thanks and praise, for who He is! And give thanks and praise for who we are in Christ!
This Week’s Memory Verse: Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness;
He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. Psalm 112:4 NKJV
This Week’s Message:
Believers, we are the upright. In Jesus we are upright, righteous because of Christ. Jesus is our light in the darkness. He is gracious, and full of compassion. He is righteous. He is our righteousness.
Let’s memorize this verse and give thanks that for who we are in Christ.
This Week’s Memory Verse: As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Psalm 103:12 NKJV
This Week’s Message: Believers, once we believed and received Jesus as our Savior, our sins were removed from us forever, never to return, never to be remembered–gone as if they never were.Memorize this verse to remind yourself daily, that in Christ you have been forgiven.
Barnes’ Notes on Psalms 103:12 As far as the east is from the west – As far as possible; as far as we can imagine. These are the points in our apprehension most distant from each other, and as we can conceive nothing beyond them, so the meaning is, that we cannot imagine our sins could be more effectually removed than they are. The literal meaning of the Hebrew is, “like the distance of the east from the west” or, “like its being far.” So far hath he removed our transgressions from us – That is, he has put them entirely away. They are so removed that they cannot affect us any more. We are safe from all condemnation for our sins, as if they had not been committed at all. Compare the notes at Isaiah 43:25; notes at Isaiah 44:22.
