“Trust and Be Not Afraid”
“Behold, God is my Salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my Strength and my Song, and He has become my Salvation.” Isaiah 12:2
TRUST---is to have CONFIDENCE and ASSURANCE in SOMEONE or SOMETHING.
So, as we ponder on the NEW YEAR that lies ahead of us. We can say, as the Prophet Isaiah said: “I will TRUST, and will NOT be AFRAID!” We, who are TRUE BELIEVERS in Jesus Christ, and have TRUSTED Him with our DESTINY, and our SALVATION, can make this proclamation because, the LORD GOD is our STRENGTH and our SALVATION. And when we became His Child, we received the ASSURANCE that He would see us through till the End of the Ages.
Therefore, we can have the CONFIDENCE along with the ASSURANCE in His PROMISES concerning our ETERNAL DESTINY. And we can TRUST and BE NOT AFRAID of what we will encounter in the coming year. We can have this TRUST in Him, because He already knows what EACH ONE of US will face, and He will be our STRENGTH through EVERYDAY and EVERY SITUATION. Can you TRUST and BE NOT AFRAID?
You can, if you will GIVE your HEART and LIFE to Him and TRUST Him with your ETERNAL DESTINY. He CAN and WILL DELIVER you from ALL your SINS, and give you the ASSURANCE of your SALVATION, and ETERNITY in HEAVEN, and He will provide for you a WAY to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, if you are WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus Christ died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and TRUST and BE NOT AFRAID of what your future holds. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
