“Fear Not Abram”

Key Verse

“After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” Genesis 15:1

Text — Genesis 15:1-6


Our Bible passage tells of Abram’s fear about his future and how God appeared to him in a vision and gave him the assurance of being there for him. God is still the same – He takes away our fears if we trust Him. Fear comes from our negative thoughts and imaginations which the devil whispers to us.

Fear has torments. Anything that does not agree with the word of God should not be allowed to stay in your heart. Do not let Satan tell you what God has not said. Thoughts of failure, lack, sicknesses, diseases, or death should not be entertained in your heart, they are not from God. (“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” – Proverbs 4:23). Protect your heart from evil thoughts in a conscious way.

Do not be afraid of the future even if things are not going on well (as you desire) in your life or family now. You have the assurance of God’s help to see you through to a beautiful end. You must however know that like Abram, your faith in God must be from a righteous heart.
