“Fear not, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10-11
Scripture is filled with the command to God’s people not to be afraid. It may be phrased in different ways and the reasons given why we are not to fear may be slightly different, but the message is the same.
