Fear is Not Your Portion

Updated: Apr 18, 2023

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” These are words found in Isaiah 41:10. They are the words of the Lord our God. Personally, I see them as promises, I read them and I am filled with a sense of security because my God has promised to stand by me at all times, He has promised to give me strength when I feel like I don’t have any; He has promised to be my helper in times of need; He has promised to hold me up when my enemies are trying to tear me down. If you weren’t aware, God is not a man… and that means unlike man, He doesn’t lie. (Num. 23:19) When our God promises us something, we are to have every confidence that it will come to pass in a way that is beneficial to us, and pleasing to Him at the same time.

A lot of the fears that we harbor as human beings stem from not knowing what our actions will result in, from doubting that you’ll be victorious at the end. A fear of heights stems from the fact that you don’t believe you won’t fall from the top, a fear of failing stems from doubt that you will be good enough to succeed in your venture. Personally, I have a strong fear of rejection, and I know it stems from self doubt — I don’t believe that I am as good as some make me out to be, and I don’t want to find out it is true. This same fear that I have can be so crippling that I fail to challenge myself or even apply myself because my mind says “you won’t do well, so what is the point?” When I rationally process these thoughts, they just don’t make sense, because at the end of the day how can I truly be sure I will fail? I cannot. And when I have God by my side, all things are possible.

2 Timothy 1:7 tells us that God didn’t give His children spirits of fear, but of love, power, and sound mind. So the only conclusion is that fear comes from the devil. The devil comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. He wants to thwart our plans and keep us from living out the lives we have been called to, so he brings things like fear in our path to stop us. The spirit of fear is not our portion. God has given us authority to trample all over the power of satan, so let’s acts like it. God promises us that he will walk with us wherever we find ourselves. Psalms 91 is filled with affirmations that because of our salvation, because of our relationship with God, we will walk in victory all the days of our lives.

When we turn our eyes up to God, everything else fades away because we realize what really and truly maters. We become bold because we remember that we are working for something that is so much bigger than what we fear. Allow me to leave you with this thought: why would God allow His children to walk in fear when He placed gifts inside of them that require boldness to be displayed and put to work?
