Over the last 5 months of Tuesdays we’ve looked at the various places where God commands His people, “Do not fear”, and seen reason after reason why we as people of God have no need to be afraid. Precious promises:
God is a shield to us. He sees us. The Lord will fight for us while we stay silent. He is with us, at our side. The Lord is our shepherd. God has called us by name, we are His. We’ve been given the spirit of adoption, not the spirit of fear. He is our Helper.
With those reasons and promises not to fear, God also gives us a call and command to fear.
