For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (Zephaniah 3:17 NLT)
What are you afraid of? I am afraid of being rejected, of being judged negatively, of being embarrassed, of annoying others, of making public mistakes, of heights, dogs, public speaking, and of things I don’t really want to speak of. I am a fearful person. So I am glad to have a God, a Father who has promised to calm all my fears. He knew I would be afraid and He promised. He knows I am afraid and offers help. He will calm my fears, all of them, even if they seem stupid.
Don’t be afraid, because I am with you. Don’t be intimidated; I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will support you with my victorious right hand. (Isaiah 41:1 GWT)
