It’s said that our bodies naturally react when it detects fear. This reaction is commonly known as, “fight or flight.” We see it in animals who attack when they feel threatened, people who run when they sense danger. Fear influences us to react and at times even in the wrong way.  

Right now, you may be going through a situation that is unbearable. You are experiencing a pain that medication cannot take away; doctors have given up on your condition; your nights are a torment and you’re not able to sleep. Your family seems broken beyond repair, and so on. The only solution you can think of is to give up. Don’t! Don’t give up, there is a solution for you: 

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10 

God is with you. He is telling you not to let your fear influence you to give up. The help that you have been searching for is with Him. Take those problems that have been threatening you and turn them over to God. Not only will He give you the strength to keep going but He will lift you up and help you overcome, just as it is promised in His Word. 

May the God of the Bible bless you
