“Fear not: for I have redeemed thee” (Isaiah 43:1).
A little boy asked his father, “Daddy, are there such things as monsters?” With a smile on his face, Daddy answered, “No, Son. There are no such things as monsters.” After a moment of silence, the four year old climbed on his daddy’s lap and asked, “If there are no monsters, why am I so afraid of them?” We chuckle at this scenario. But come to think of it, I wonder how many things we fear that never materialize? If you know the Lord Jesus as Savior, listen to His strong and reassuring voice as He says to you, “Fear not: for I have redeemed you.” What a wonderful thing to hear from our God once again today.
For today: It is probably a good thing to remind myself that whatever “monsters” I face, God tells me not to fear. More from Isaiah 43 tomorrow!
