FEAR NOT!

It is said that whenever God says, “Fear not,” you must start worrying; for He’ll be asking you to do the impossible! (Think of Abraham, Moses, Gideon, Jeremiah, or Mary). Yet, God's “Fear not” commands are also His promises. An estimated 365 “fear not” promises are in the Bible—at least one for each day’s need. Therefore, when it seems like you're finished or it’s over and there's no point going on, Jesus says “Fear not; it’s not the end, just the beginning.” (cf. Mark 5: 35, 36). "The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else” (Oswald Chambers). God has power to intervene, even in your most hopeless situations. Fear not!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
