Most People Are Afraid of Trouble
Psalms 112:6 For he will never be shaken; the righteous will be remembered forever.
Psalms 27: 1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread?
Psalms 27:3 Though a host encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war rise against me, in spite of this I shall be confident. In spite of this I shall be confident, though a host encamp against me, my heart will not fear;
Psalms 46:2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.
Proverbs 3:25 Do not be afraid of sudden fear nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes;
Psalms 118:6 The Lord is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me? Deut. 31:6 “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid and tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail or forsake you.”
TO BE ARAID IS A WITNESS AGAINST US TO THE ENEMY THAT WE DON’T REALLY KNOW THE ONE WE SAY WE BELIEVE IN!
WHY IS IT THAT GODS PEOPLE ARE NOT AFRAID?
Psalms 112:7 He will not fear evil tidings; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. Steadfast- fixed, established
Romans 8:15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”
2 Tim. 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, ( fear ) but of power and love and discipline.
My Life Today, p. 182 God has granted to men a strong foundation upon which to rest their faith. The heart of the righteous is supported by God, and rests upon a firm foundation of faith in Him.
T he A uthenticity and I nspiration of the S cripture, lie at the foundation of all our hopes of eternal life. A strong foundation may bear up a weak superstructure; but a weak foundation cannot support a strong superstructure….
Psalms 56:3, 4, 11 When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust. In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?
Proverbs 1:33 “But he who listens to me shall live securely and will be at ease from the dread of evil.”
Hebrews 13:6 So that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?” Psalms 112:7 His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
My Life Today, p. 182 TRUST MEANS SECURITY Distrust of God is the natural outgrowth of the unrenewed heart, which is at enmity with Him. But faith is inspired by the Holy Spirit, and it will flourish only as it is cherished. No man can be strong in faith without a determined effort….Only in humble reliance upon God and obedience to all His commandments can we be secure.
