Do Not Be Afraid

Acts 18:9-10 “Then spake the Lord to Paul in then night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:  For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee:  for I have much people in this city.”

I am afraid we, all too often, make mountains out of mole hills.  We must learn to rid ourselves of the spirit of fear.  It is a dangerous sin that holds us back from so many blessings.  The Lord reminds us that He has our backs.

  • Fear will hinder the Gospel from being preached.  The greatest need in a person’s life is to here a clear presentation of the Gospel.
  • Fear will hinder God’s progress in our lives.  We must remember that each step is supposed to be a step of faith.  The presence of fear causes us to lack the faith necessary to move forward.
  • Fear will cause us to hold back when we need to be speaking up.  We are so afraid of offending people that we have forgotten how to make a stand for Christ.  People need to hear the truth, regardless of how much it hurts.

Today’s Challenge:   Don’t hold back.  God is present with us.  Don’t be afraid.
