His Presence, Our Peace
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.'
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me…
God is with you! All fear is ultimately based on a lie that says: “You are on your own; it’s up to you to defend yourself, save yourself, heal yourself, provide for yourself and chart your own course.”
But Emmanuel is with you right now, right where you are, and forever! He’s the God who has promised “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Heb. 13:5).
Like everyone else on planet Earth, you will face problems and storms in this life sometimes – but you’ll never face them alone. The Lord is with you to help you, guide you, protect you, heal you, and provide for you.
Let’s show Him our faith right now – before the symptoms improve and the problems disappear – by choosing worship over worry, praise over depression, and trust over fear.
“Father, I choose to believe the truth: You are with me now, and forever. And everything speaking fear to me is ultimately a lie. Remind me to worship in the face of fear this week, and to silence the lies of fear with the truth of Your Word. In Jesus’ name, Amen!”
