There are nearly 200 verses in the Bible where it says, “Do not Fear.” Some of these references were directed to leaders like Moses, Joshua, David as well as a poor widow woman. This indicates that God stands in reassurance for both the leader and the common person who may be facing insurmountable difficulties and circumstances that seem beyond our ability to handle.
Psalm 118:6 says, “The Lord is on my side, I will not fear.” Assuming that David wrote this Psalm, we know he was a man who faced life and death challenges. In all of them, he was conscious the Lord was by his side and therefore, fear was not an option.
Many around us in the world are in a state of panic and the Coronavirus escalates in many places. What is our responsibility as a follower of Jesus? Knowing God and having the Holy Spirit in us, we must rest in knowing that God knows far more about our situation than we do, plus He has a purpose in allowing us to go through these challenging times — our witness to others.
For yourself and those around you, DO NOT GIVE IN TO FEAR OR PANIC! The Lord is at you side! David also said, “In the day of my trouble I call upon You, for You answer me” (86:7). As you call on the Lord and receive His strength, you will be able to comfort, sustain and draw others into a relationship with the Lord.
