Isaiah 41:10-12 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, yes, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Fear=phobos in the greek. It means panic flight, fear, the causing of fear, terror.
Dismayed=chathath in greek. It means to be shattered or dismayed.
As people of God, the opportunity to be fearful or afraid will visit us all. The opportunity to be fearful or dismay comes and goes with life.
Yes, we all face freighting situations and circumstances at times, BUT, the Lord our God says to us on today "fear not for He is with us." He is the Lord our God who is the Sovereign God over the universe.
We know that we are not immune from trouble for we have seen evidence of it in the scripture that reminds of that. We too will endure them and some of you may be enduring them right now. We have seen them in the lives of others and even in our own ourselves. The good news is we are not alone in them. God is with us!!!
We are reminded of Jesus' disciples who also had experience trouble. They walked with Jesus on a daily basis and they too were faced with fearful problems and experienced fear first hand themselves on the sea of Galilee and in the form of persecution from those who oppose Jesus and them as His followers.
Today we are reminded that the Lord our God is with us everywhere we go.
David declared the Lord's ever presence with him in Psalm 23:4-Even when I walk through a valley of deep darkness, I will not be afraid because you are with me. Your rod and your staff—they comfort me.

Psalm 139:7-12 Where shall I go from Your spirit, or where shall I flee from Your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell at the end of the sea, 10 even there Your hand shall guide me, and Your right hand shall take hold of me. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light shall be as night about me,” 12 even the darkness is not dark to You, but the night shines as the day, for the darkness is like light to You.
