God works in us to help us confront our fears and develop strength.
He promises to be our light in the darkness and our strength (Psalm 21:1).
He reminds us not to be dismayed, because he will help us and hold us (Isaiah 41:10).
He tells us to be of good courage because he will never leave nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6).
He exhorts us to be strong and courageous (Joshua 1:6).
He delivers us from our troubles and doubts and fears so that we may taste and see his goodness (Psalm 34).
God’s power is real. It’s an undeniable force, and it lives in us. As we fix our eyes on him, we see his love, we taste his power, which is food for the soul. It helps us to grow stronger and to rise above any fear holding us back.
