Do not be afraid.

Do not be afraid.
“Thou shalt not be afraid of them; for Jehovah, thy God is in thy midst, a God great and terrible.”
Deuteronomy 7:21 (Darby )
Are you afraid of your people?
Has someone threatened you?
Are you been bullied?
Maybe they think you are a “weirdo” following Jesus?
It does not matter what you are scared or afraid of.
Be assured God is with you.
The Israelites had many nations to conquer.
Of the twelve men spying on the country, only two had faith in God.
The rest were scared of the “big people.”
They seemed like giants.
But Joshua and Caleb trusted God. They did not allow fear to intimidate them.
They were the only two of the group to enter the promised land.
Do you want to enter the promised land?
Do you want all that God has told you fulfilled?
Don’t be afraid.
Will you allow your fear to prevent you from serving God?
“So don’t be intimidated by them. God, your God, is among you—majestic God, awesome God. God, your God, will get rid of these nations, bit by bit. You won’t be permitted to wipe them out all at once lest the wild animals take over and overwhelm you. But God, your God, will move them out of your way—he’ll throw them into a huge panic until there’s nothing left of them. He’ll turn their kings over to you and you’ll remove all trace of them under Heaven. Not one person will be able to stand up to you; you’ll put an end to them all.”
Deuteronomy 7:21-24
Application to the Christian life:
Trust God.
Do not be afraid.
Serve Him.
Allow God to guide you.
