Fear Not – Good News for December 11

11 12 2008

Isaiah 41:13-16

I am the LORD, your God, who grasp your right hand; It is I who say to you, “Fear not, I will help you.” Fear not, O worm Jacob, O maggot Israel; I will help you, says the LORD; your redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. I will make of you a threshing sledge, sharp, new, and double-edged, To thresh the mountains and crush them, to make the hills like chaff. When you winnow them, the wind shall carry them off and the storm shall scatter them. But you shall rejoice in the LORD, and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

The Daily Path: Today is a good day for this little reminder brought to you by God 

“Fear not, I will help you.”

Note that there is no disclaimer. No small print. God has never been charged with fraud, or trying to take back his memorabilia at gun point, or selling a position of authority next to Him for cash. This is an honest iron clad guarantee. 

I don’t know about you, but this is exactly the kind of assurance I want and need… in good times and bad.

The problem is that I’m only human. As such I’m subject to doubt. I may turn something over to God but then take it back instead of just trusting. Join me today in an effort to “fear not.” Let’s turn whatever is troubling us over to God and let Him help us. Remember… it’s guaranteed!
