Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them.
Jeremiah 1:17 (NLT)
The fear of God is the best method to counteract the fear of man. Let us worship Him.
“Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD.
Jeremiah 1:8 (NASB)
God is with us, we have no reason to fear the disapproval or concern of man.
From east to west everyone will fear him and his great power. He will come like a rushing river, like a strong wind. The Lord says to his people, I will come to Jerusalem to defend you and to save all of you that turn from your sins. And I make a covenant with you: I have given you my power and my teachings to be yours forever, and from now on you are to obey me and teach your children and your descendants to obey me for all time to come.
Isaiah 59:19-21 (GNT)
Empowered by the Spirit we share the gospel message of Christ who was sent on our behalf to defend against evil, so that across the earth all will bow down and worship the Father.
Are you afraid of these idols? Do they terrify you? Is that why you have lied to me and forgotten me and my words? Is it because of my long silence that you no longer fear me? Now I will expose your so-called good deeds. None of them will help you. Let’s see if your idols can save you when you cry to them for help. Why, a puff of wind can knock them down! If you just breathe on them, they fall over! But whoever trusts in me will inherit the land and possess my holy mountain.
Isaiah 57:11-13 (NLT)
Those who put their faith in idols dishonor God, their lies will be exposed and no one will be able to help them. Those who trust and worship the Lord honor Him and have an inheritance.
When you do what is right, you will be made secure. Your leaders will not be mean to you. You will not have anything to be afraid of. You will not be terrified anymore. Terror will not come near you.
Isaiah 54:14 (NIrV)
When the Lord reigns in your life evil oppression is put in its place and we are free of fear.
Don’t be afraid or ashamed and don’t be discouraged. You won’t be disappointed. Forget how sinful you were when you were young; stop feeling ashamed for being left a widow. The LORD All-Powerful, the Holy God of Israel, rules all the earth. He is your Creator and husband, and he will rescue you.
Isaiah 54:4-5 (CEV)
Do not be afraid or ashamed of your previous life, the life before you was redeemed from the enslavement of sin by Christ.
Have you forgotten the Lord who made you, who stretched out the heavens and laid the earth’s foundations? Why should you live in constant fear of the fury of those who oppress you, of those who are ready to destroy you? Their fury can no longer touch you.
Isaiah 51:13 (GNT)
Do not be a slave to the fear of men, for man has no power but that which God allows. Keep in mind that God is the designer of all creation and the one to be feared.
Listen to Me, you who know rightness and justice and right standing with God, the people in whose heart is My law and My instruction: fear not the reproach of men, neither be afraid nor dismayed at their revilings. For [in comparison with the Lord they are so weak that things as insignificant as] the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool. But My rightness and justice [and faithfully fulfilled promise] shall be forever, and My salvation to all generations.
Isaiah 51:7-8 (AMP)
Do not be afraid of the contempt, lies and disapproval of men, for they will be silenced and the truth will be celebrated.
The Lord says to his people, “I comfort you because of who I am. Why are you afraid of mere men? They are only human beings. They are like grass that dries up.”
Isaiah 51:12 (NIrV)
Do not fear the scorn of men, but run to God who provides comfort. The fact that God Himself would even provide comfort is comforting in itself.
Who among you fears the LORD? Who obeys the voice of His Servant? Who walks in darkness And has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD And rely upon his God.
Isaiah 50:10 (NKJV)
Child of God, be encouraged! Place your confidence and trust in the name of the Lord and stand in awe of His majesty and grace.
