Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Give God your fears as you name them. Talk to Him about them as you contemplate and apply Scripture such as Isaiah 41:10. Allow Him to calm your fears. Thank Him for the times He has turned fear into joy, peace, and hope in the past.
Turn Scripture into a Personal Prayer: (Isaiah 41:10)
Lord Jesus, When I read the New Testament Gospels, I have discovered that you often spoke the words, “Do not be afraid.” You did not want people to be afraid to come into Your divine presence. In the Old Testament, I also find God often speaking to those who believed in the One and Only True God, “Fear not!” I bring my fears to You today: fears about the future, my health, protection of my family—fears regarding challenging assignments You have given me—fears unnamed—nagging doubts. Although the words in Isaiah 41:10 were spoken in another age to a different group of people, I believe the promise is also true for me as one of Your followers. Thank You for Your promise that You are my God and You will be with me strengthening and helping me. Amen1
