He Himself has said.....

Hebrews 13:5

     Our assurance is built upon God's assurance to us.  God has said, "I will never leave you," so that we may boldly say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not fear."

     This does not mean you will not be tempted to fear, but in your fears you can remember God's assurance.  You can have courage and strive to reach for the standard your heavenly Father has set before you.  Our faith falters when we forget God's assurances toward us.  The only way to remove fear is to believe what He has said, "I will never leave you."

     Our own human frailty is another thing which interferes with our trust.  In our weakness the problems we face become giants, we become like grasshoppers, and God seems to be nowhere.  But remember God's assurance.  He will never leave you....  He is your helper.

     Have you learned this?  To whom are you yielding?  Your Helper or your fears?

Oh Lord inspire us today to trust in You, in Your word, and in Your assurances to us!
