I Fear No More

Please add this worship song to your online church sermon, morning devotion, or evening quiet time.
Today’s song is “I Fear No More” performed by The Afters

“But now, this is what the Lord says—He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel:  “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.  Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.  Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.  Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”
Isaiah 43: 1-7 (NIV)

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea”
Psalms 46: 1-2 (NIV)

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
Matthew 10: 29-31 (NIV)

Today’s song “I Will Fear No More” by The Afters speaks of our God, our shelter in the Storms of life.

Isn’t it great to know that Our God:
knows us by our name and has numbered each hair on our head.
is One we can run to when we are in danger or need refuge.
is One who is strong when we are weak, weary, and downhearted.
is always for us
is always on our side.

This means that we can always benefit from His wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.  Whatever this world throws at you today, tomorrow or ten years from now, you will not face it alone.  God will be with you.  The closer the enemy, the nearer our Shepherd.

Praise God today that, the One who died in your place for your sins will never abandon you.
He promised, “Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matt 28: 20 (NIV)

In Christ,

I Will Fear No More

Every anxious thought that steals my breath
It’s a heavy weight upon my chest
As I lie awake and wonder what the future will hold
Help me to remember that You’re in control

You’re my courage when I worry in the dead of night
You’re my strength ’cause I’m not strong enough to win this fight
You are greater than the battle raging in my mind
I will trust You, Lord
I will fear no more

I will lift my eyes
I will lift my cares
Lay them in Your hands
I’ll leave them there
When the wind and waves are coming
You shelter me
Even though I’m in the storm, the storm is not in me

No power can come against me
‘Cause You have overcome

May we grow together in the love of Christ to reflect upon the mercies and blessings upon our lives, to feel the presence of God’s living Holy Spirit through worship to sing, pray, laugh, dance, cry, but mostly to praise our Lord and Father as we were indeed created2praise.
