JOSHUA 1:9 NKJ 9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Over and over the Bible tells us to not be afraid.
When you stop and think about it — it’s ridiculous to be afraid when God is with you — and for you.
As humans, we tend to forget. Maybe that’s why God said so many times to “Fear not!”
Here are just a couple examples.
LUKE 12:7 NIV 7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
ISAIAH 41:13 NIV 13 For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
