When turbulent times are upon you, the Word of GOD should be your anchor! In our scripture for today, we find Isaiah’s writings about our source for that hope ( MESSIAH YESHUA).
Here GOD promises us strength, help and protection! Moreover, He gives us two commands: “Do not fear and do not anxiously look about you.”
One of Satan’s successful traps is distraction! He knows that fear can choke faith. He works hard to make unsettling circumstances our focus!
Once our attention is diverted from GOD, and prayer and worship are in lack, then anxiety and doubt have room for growth!
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.
The emotions of anxiety, fear and doubt don’t belong in a believer’s life! Let’s use the spiritual anchors throughout GOD’S Word to keep us steady in our faith!
