“Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
What do you think when you read these words? For me, this is the first Bible verse I remember reading after I knew I was called to serve. I remember asking God how I was going to be a pastor to people that have been studying His word their entire life. I knew that He was telling me He would be by my side. Then I went home picked up my Bible; well, to tell the truth, I had to find it first. I opened it and read these words, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
After all these years Jesus has never let me down and, yes, I must do my part and study. Even in the times that I am unsure about what to say He has held me up to heights I never thought I could go. So what is my point here? It’s simple. We are all called to serve and most of us are as scared as I was that day; but, if we, and yes, there is an “if” statement, if we do our part He will do His and we cannot fail.
So my question to you today is, “Are you willing to trust in Him and allow Him to work in your life?”
