”FEAR NOT: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth” ~ Isaiah 43:5-6
FEAR NOT: (Whatever You have gone through) God still has a Place for You
After captivity in Babylon followed by Medeo-Persian, Greek and then Roman rule and finally ‘expulsion’ from The Promised Land, the Israelites, wondered if God was done with them. Had their sins ruined their relationship with God forever? Would they or their children, or their children’s children ever return to the Promised Land? Were they finished as a nation?
Knowing that they would wonder these things, God prepared a message for them ahead (far, far ahead) of time: He was not finished with them: He would bring them back. And He did: in 1947 the nation of Israel was ‘reborn’ with Israelites returning from every direction.
The message for Believers, for you and for me, is that even when God chastises (disciplines) us, He isn’t finished with us. He will “bring us back”: He will restore us!
“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” ~ Philippians 1:6
FEAR NOT, God won’t give up on us! FEAR NOT, even when we ‘mess up’ God still has a plan for us, if we repent! FEAR NOT, though sometimes we wander far away from God, God WILL bring His children home! FEAR NOT, God’s children will not wander in the wilderness forever! FEAR NOT, Believer, your home is with God your Father: He still has room for you!
This post is a part of a series on several of the “FEAR NOT” sayings in the Bible.
