Scripture: Isa. 41:8-16

8 “But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend, 9 I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 11 “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.12 Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. 13 For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you14 Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob, little Israel, do not fear, for I myself will help you,” declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. 15 “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff. 16 You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up, and a gale will blow them away. But you will rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

 

6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. (2 Cor. 9:6-8)

 

10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God(2 Cor. 9:10-11)

 

1. What is God saying to you today?

Fear Not! (vv.10, 13-14)

  • not a suggestion, but a direct command

God wants His people to be full of faith and not full of fear

Satan wants us to live in Fear, but God wants us to live by Faith.

Fear is real.

If Satan can get you to be fearful, he will cripple your faith and trust in God.

4 Types of Fear
  1. Godly Fear – prevents us from sinning against God
  2. Real Fear – prepares us to face reality in life
  3. Healthy Fear – helps us discern what is safe and dangerous
  4. Unhealthy Fear – prevents us from achieving our God-given goals and living our blessed life in Him

For God has not given us spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Tim 1:7)

Fear will cause us to lose focus on who God is and what He can do.

Faith will propel us to look to God and trust Him for our breakthroughs and miracles.

 

2. Why should you not fear?

God will help you (vv.10, 13-14)

 

3. Why should God help you?

You are His servant and chosen one (vv.8-9)

You are special and precious to Him.

You are a Warrior, not a worrier.

 

4. How will God help you?

He will reduce your enemies to nothing. (v.11-12)

He will make. you stronger than your enemies (vv.15-16)

 

5. What should you do now?

Believe His Word.

Trust Him for your breakthrough and miracles.

Jesus said, “Everything is possible for him who believes.“ (Mark 9:23)

 

Tell the Lord, “Today, I will…

  • Fear Not because You will be with me and help me (vv.8-10, 13-14)
  • Faint Not because You will strengthen me (vv.10, 13)
  • Falter Not because You will uphold me (vv.10, 13)
  • Fuss Not because You will destroy my enemies (vv.11-12)
  • Fail Not because You will make me stronger than my enemies (vv.15-16)
  • Forget Not because You will be remembered and glorified in my life (v.16b)

Therefore, I Love You. I Trust You. I Praise You.
