9 I took you from the ends of the earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are my servant’;
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Can you imagine living every day with FEAR?
God knows that we will be afraid. Over and over in scripture are these reminders: Do not be afraid. Do not fear.
Is there really anything that we should be afraid of when we have God with us?
