229. The Word Reveals our Unfounded Fears

Isaiah 44:8 NKJV Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.‘ “

Most fear is not based on fact. Most fear that people face or experience is based on a feeling or thought about a possible outcome of a situation. Aristotle said, “Fear is pain arising from anticipation of evil.”

Negative situations are declaring something to you. They declare that they are going to destroy your health, your wealth, your reputation, your marriage… But you don’t have to get into fear. Fear enters in when you listen and begin to believe the lies they declare. STOP it.

You don’t have to believe the lies. One way to eliminate fear is to find its’ foundation and shine the light of God’s Word to it. Isaiah 44:8 reminds us of this truth. There is no other Rock besides our God. He is the foundation. We do not have fear nor ever be afraid, because He is the Rock. He is the foundation of truth, Jesus the Word of God. What is at the base of your fear? Now compare it to what the Word, the foundation of truth says. Looking at your fears in the light and truth of the Word allows us to begin to see just how unfounded our fears are. Through this process we are released and experience freedom from our fears.

Do not fear, nor be afraid. There is no other God besides our Lord and His Word is Truth.
