Fear Not
July 7, 1998By Ed Wrather

“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 (Isaiah 41:10).”

Going to a dentist’s office is usually not something that most people look forward to, myself included. So when I needed to have my wisdom teeth taken out by an oral surgeon I was not looking forward to the event. But the day came and I was a little nervous. My way of coping with the waiting prior to being given general anesthesia was to repeat one of my memory verses over and over again in my mind. Isaiah 41:10 was the verse of that day.

As I was given the anesthetic I was repeating in my mind, “Fear thou not....” When I came out from under the anesthetic I was surprised to find myself still repeating Isaiah 41:10 over and over again. Since that day, I have at times found myself facing much more difficult situations than oral surgery. Isaiah 41:10 has been there for them all. “Fear thou not, for I am with thee,” and I know that He is with me and He is holding me in His right hand. Through Isaiah 41:10 I have felt God’s presence and experienced Him.

Whatever it is that life may be throwing at you, God would say, “Fear thou not, for I am with thee....”
