What Have We to Fear?

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

"Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.  When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.  For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy one of Israel, thy Saviour."
--Isaiah 43:1-3
What have we to fear when God is on our side?
In greatest darkness, He is the light.
Jesus is faithful; In Him we can confide;
None can dare to stand against His might.

With Christ to guide, we need not fear the future;
He holds it in His Almighty hand.
He is the Rock on which we our lives structure;
Other foundations are sinking sand.

In that hidden, secret place of the Most High,
He will see us through the present storm.
Our greatest expectations He will defy
As to His righteous will we conform.

What have we to fear when God is on our side?
Nothing!  No circumstance or problem--
God is greater!  He helped the poor soul that cried.
Give your fears to the Lord; He'll solve them.

We have nothing to fear with God on our side.

Trust in the Lord Jesus and fear not!
