The sentiment 'I will not fear' reflects a deep trust in God and is echoed in Psalm 118:6 (NKJV): "The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" Realising that the God of the universe stands with us diminishes the power of fear and the intimidation of worldly challenges.
This scripture does not promise that we won't face difficulties but reassurance that we need not be paralysed by fear in the midst of them.
Ultimately, 'I will not fear' is a statement of personal resolve and a testament to our trust in God. As we navigate through life's ups and downs, this verse serves as a compass, guiding us back to a place of peace and security in God's presence, where fear loses its grip and faith takes its place. In all of this thought, fear will never define you; faith will.
Fear will never define you; faith always will.
Lord, help me find faith in every challenge of life. Amen.
List the main issues that cause fear and then pray in faith for a solution.
