Fear is such a powerful emotion.

“Do not be afraid, Abram” (Genesis 15:11).

Fear is such a powerful emotion. It can have such a negative effect on us. Abram needed to hear this word from the Lord. We need to hear this word from the Lord. There are times when everything seems to be so out of control. We wonder, “What’s going to happen next?” We fear that it’s only going to get worse. This is when we need to hear the words, “Do not be afraid.” When these words are spoken to us by a good friend, we appreciate their help, but we wonder how much our friends can, really, help us. When these words come to us from the Word of God, we sense that there is something deeper here, something more powerful, something more permanent. God looks at our present situation, and He says to us, “Do not be afraid,” He looks beyond our present situation, and He says to us, “Whatever comes your way, don’t forget this: I will be with you, I will not leave you when the going gets tough, do not be afraid.”
