You don’t have to fear the king of Babylon. Your fears are for nothing. I’m on your side, ready to save and deliver you from anything he might do. Jeremiah 42:11 MSG
Usually when someone tells you that there is nothing to be afraid of, you are already frightened. People tend to say those words to reassure you that everything is alright. Most of the time your inside is like jello; your knees are having fellowship and your body is shaking. You look at the person and you wonder what planet are you on? Obviously, you are nowhere where I am because if you were on earth, you would know that there are many reasons to be very concerned about what is happening here.
The leaders were concerned about their survival, so they went to Jeremiah, the servant of God, so Jeremiah could to God on their behalf. They were aware of their predicament; they believed that God would respond to him. When Jeremiah gave them the word from God, he told them don’t be afraid. When man looks at an impossible situation and says don’t be afraid, many times it does little to change your emotion. However, when God says, don’t fear, you can have faith and believe because God has the power to bring change
When you look at the situation affecting the world today, there’s a tendency to react in fear. But the same God, who spoke to the leaders in Jeremiah’s day, is the same God who is speaking to you today. In Jeremiah’s time, the King of Babylon invoked fear. Today it’s Covid-19 and the economic forecast invoking fear. But the answer is the same; God does not change. He alone has to power save and rescue. All you need to do is trust Him.
Thought for Today: Friend, God has the power to deliver from any situation.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
