Do Not Be Afraid.

Do Not Be Afraid.
“After these things, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.”
Gen. 15:1 (KJV).
Abram had just finished rescuing Lot.
Remember, Lot was taken captive.
Abram had to save them.
Everything was back to normal.
God then appeared to Abram in the vision, telling him not to fear.
Why did God not tell Abram not to fear before saving Lot?
There was no time for talking.
Abram had to act fast.
Did that mean God was not with Abram? No, God was present during the rescue. God helped Abram to get his family back.
Do you go through difficult times?
Especially on behalf of the larger family?
Do you sometimes ask yourself:
What is in it for me?
In all these helps I am doing?
Do you feel God is not present?
Can you see the total picture?
“But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless…
Do not be afraid.
As you take care of others.
Lot that he went to rescue already had a family.
Abram, at that time, only had his chief servant.
“Chief of staff,” as you will call it today.
No heir.
HE got your back.
God sees and knows your labor of love.
God is present.
Sometimes you only see Him after everything is completed.
Then you see how God helped you through all your dark moments.
Don’t cease in your labor of love.
Application to the Christian life:
Do not despair when you go through difficult times.
God knows everything.
God also knows what to do to solve your problem.
Trust Him.
Honor and praise Him even when you struggle.
