ISAIAH 41:10 – FEAR NOT! #2 – A FUNERAL MESSAGE

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

When a person has placed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, having assurance of forgiveness and eternal life, God tells them not to fear.  According to Isaiah 41:10, there are five reasons not to be afraid:

OUR GOD IS PRESENT – Fear thou not; for I am with thee:

OUR GOD IS PERSONAL – …be not dismayed; for I am thy God:

  • GOD IS OUR FATHER,
  • JESUS IS OUR SHEPHERD – Psalm 23

OUR GOD IS POWERFUL – I will strengthen thee;

OUR GOD IS PRACTICAL – yea, I will help thee;

OUR GOD IS PERMANENT – yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
