“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
At one of the youth camps I attended, we sang “Be Not Afraid.” This song can give a person strength to know that God is with him on his journey. The verse from Deuteronomy has a similar idea. We mustn’t let anyone else cause us fear because God is always with us. Anything negative that is said to us is of no matter because we will never be ridiculed by God. It’s like the Bible’s version of the well-known shoe company’s slogan, “Just Do It,” but the rewards of following the Bible are greater than following the modern slogan.
GOD, YOU ARE OUR ROCK IN WHOM WE TRUST. HELP US TO TRUST IN YOU AND TO NEVER FEAR BECAUSE YOU ARE WITH US ALWAYS. AMEN.
