Fear Not Scripture: Joshua 10:25

Joshua 10:25This 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.

Fear Not Scripture: Joshua 8:1

No Fear--Joshua8-1And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed:…Joshua 8:1 KJV

Once again the LORD is saying “Fear not”. First, He was telling Moses to tell the people of Israel, then He was telling Moses to tell Joshua, and now He is telling Joshua Himself.

Joshua is now in charge, Moses is gone and Joshua is the new leader of Israel. He led the people across the Jordan River. He led them to Jericho where God caused the walls to fall down and the Israelites o conquered it. However, now, Joshua is troubled and greatly upset. He is in fear and is in dismay because his army has lost a battle, one which he thought they should have won and he is questioning God as to why. God tells him it is because some of the Israelites have been disobedient. They have sinned against God by taking things that God had forbid them to take. Joshua did not know this, but God knew, and God had not been with them when they went into battle because of it—so they lost.

Now, God is telling Joshua to find the ones who stole the goods and punish them and destroy the forbidden goods. Then, God will once again be with Israel and Joshua will lead them into victory against the enemies.

There is a lesson to learn here. It is obedience. God loves us but he requires obedience. As a just Father he will discipline those who disobey Him. Just as our parents love us, they also expect us to be obedient to them, otherwise we have to face consequences. God will never forsake His children, but He will discipline them for their own good, just as our parents would do.

Let’s think upon this and be obedient out of love and reverencere to God. For He is with us and He says “Fear Not” to us as well. He will lead us to victory if we listen to Him and do what He says.

Memorize this verse as a reminder to “Fear Not” and neither be dismayed.

Blessings to you daily as you memorize His word.

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.

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.

Fear Not Scripture–Genesis 26:24

Genesis 26:24This 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!

Fear Not Scripture: Genesis 21:17

Genesis 21:17This Week’s Scripture:
“What ails you, Hagar?  Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.” Genesis 21:17 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
The first part of this verse says: And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven,…

This verse shows me:
First of all—God, Elohiym, the Supreme God, the Creator, heard
(perceived, regarded, listened, understood) the voice of Hagar’s child.

Second–That God didn’t just hear, He responded. He sent His angel to communicate with Hagar, the lad’s mother.

Third–It shows God’s concern, his love and compassion. He wants to let Hagar know that He is aware of what is going on in her life and in the life of her child, for the verse says: “God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.”
God wanted to let Hagar know that He knew exactly where she and her son were and that she should not be afraid for God was going to help.

Believers, isn’t this a wonderful verse for us to memorize and reflect upon? Don’t you think that each one of us could substitute our name in place of Hagar’s name in this verse?
Don’t you agree that God would also tell us that He hears our cries just as He heard the lad’s cries? And that He knows just where we are and that we should not be afraid for He will help us? For,  we are His children.

Plus, God not only hears, He sees also.  In Genesis 16:13 Hagar called Him “El-Roi–The God Who Sees Me.”

In Malachi 3:6 God says: “For I am the LORD, I change not;”—since God doesn’t change, should we not expect that He would also hear and see us today?

“Fear Not”—Our God–Elohiym says.  Are we hearing Him?

Blessings to you as you memorize His word and walk and talk with Him daily.

No Fear Scripture–Genesis 15:1

No Fear In our uncertain world we often see or hear things that can cause us to become fearful or anxious.
Yet, all through scripture we see God telling us not to fear or not to be afraid.
Let’s memorize some of those scriptures so that we can call them to mind in our time of need, and encourage ourselves that God is always near and we have no need to fear.

This Week’s Scripture:
Genesis 15:1“Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.”  Genesis 15:1 KJV

This Week’s Message:
God was telling Abram not to be afraid because He, God, was Abram’s shield and exceeding great reward. A shield protects. An exceeding great reward encourages and uplifts.
God was telling Abram to have no fear because He, God, was everything Abram needed.

I believe God is saying the same to all of us who believe.
Many times scripture says God is our shield and He that will reward those who trust in Him.

Let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves to “Fear Not”, for in Christ, God is our shield and heaven is our exceeding great reward.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–Z

Gold Letter ZThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Do not let your heart envy sinners, But be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day;
Proverbs 23:17 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
“Zealous” is not a word we hear very much nowadays, it means: ardently devoted, eager for something, actively or intensely diligent, enthusiastic or passionate about something.
and “fear of the LORD” means: a reverential awe for the One True God=Jehovah. It means to have respect for Him, not to be afraid of Him, but to reverence Him for who He is.

So, to be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day would mean that we believers, should be ardently devoted to the LORD.
We should be in reverential awe over Him daily.

We should be actively pursuing His word, His will, His way. Our passion should be in and on the LORD, not on anything or anyone else.

Let’s memorize this verse as a daily reminder to ourselves.

Note:
This is the last memory verse in this “Nuggets of Truth” series.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. –Jesus  [John 6:47 KJV]

This Week’s Message:
Verily means something that is asserted or confirmed. It is saying whatever is spoken is a firm truth. When Jesus said “Verily, Verily” He was using a double assertion, like “Amen, Amen”.
He was doubly confirming that what He was saying was surely true.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–S

Gold Letter SThis Week’s Memory Verse:
“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. ” –Jesus [Matthew 6:33 NKJV]

This Week’s Message:
In the verses previous to this verse Jesus was talking about worrying. He was telling the people not to worry about material things, like clothes and food.
He was telling them to look at the nature around them and see how God provided for the birds and the flowers. He was saying we should first seek God’s way and will for our lives
and if we do, then God will take care of us, just as He does with the birds and flowers, yet even more so because we are even more precious to Him.

When I think of God’s kingdom and righteousness, I immediately think of Christ, for Jesus is the righteousness of God and He is the Messiah who is coming back to rule and reign someday soon.

So believers, let’s memorize this verse to remind ourselves daily to “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” and then we shall not need to worry about anything.

Blessings to you daily.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–P

Gold Letter PThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
Psalm 16:1 KJV

This Week’s Message:
This verse is a Michtam of David. Only two other Psalms are described as such. I believe it is a special poem that David wrote to encourage himself during a time of great need.
The definition of Michtam is not totally known but it is believed by some to mean “golden” or a very bold, special request at a time of great need or during a time of trouble.

“Preserve me” would mean protect me, keep me from harm, watch over me, guard me, and more.
David was speaking to “EL” Jehovah, the One True God. David was telling God that he trusted in Him, that he believed God was near and that God would indeed help him.

I think that this would be a special short verse for all of us believers to memorize as we could recall it to memory in our times of need.

Blessings to you as you memorize His word and walk in it with Him daily.

This week’s verse admonishes us. We, believers, who are God’s children, should be showing our selves to be His children through our actions, not just through our words.

Gold Letter KThis Week’s Memory Verse
Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
In this week’s verse we have a message to us from our Father God. He is speaking here to us, His children.
He is telling us to guard, or watch over, our inner man, our mind, will, heart, understanding.
We need to confine our thoughts, guard our hearts, keep watch over our will.
Why? Because our life reflects what we think. What we believe should be exhibited in our life.
If we keep our focus on God and His word, not on the world, our flesh or the temptations of satan, we will have a good life.

 Realize that this is a call to action.  Memorize this verse as a warning to yourself—to “Keep your heart with all diligence” daily.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–D

Gold Letter DThis Week’s Memory Verse:
“ Do not be afraid, only believe” –Jesus
Mark 5:36 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
This week’s memory verse is the words of Jesus to the ruler of the synagogue, Jairus, whose daughter was on the brink of death.
(Read the whole story in Mark chapter 5)

Jairus, had come to Jesus to beg healing for his daughter but while Jesus was on the way to go to her, he was delayed by crowds and by a woman who sought healing also.
Therefore, during all of this, some people came up to Jairus telling him that his daughter had already died and that he should not trouble Jesus any further.
It was then Jesus spoke these words to him–in essence, to do not fear, do not listen to others, only believe in Me. I am on my way to help you, to cure your daughter, listen to Me, follow Me, for no delays can stop Me, nothing on earth can alter my plan, which is the plan of the Father, trust in Me, have confidence I what I say.  Jairus was a ruler in the synagogue, but Jesus was a ruler of all!
Jesus had power over all things and we see, in the end, that Jairus did trust in Jesus and that the daughter was healed, even in spite of those who stood around mocking Him.

There is a good lesson here for all of us—“Do not be afraid, only believe”
Our faith sometimes must be put into action. 
So, let’s memorize this verse and remember it in our time of fear, doubt or grief, and especially when our prayers are not immediately answered.
For from this story, we see, sometimes, we have to be patient and wait,  and sometimes our faith and trust will be tested, but in the end, Jesus’ words are always true.
