God can help us overcome intimidation in the hardest of times; as Abraham had feared that he would not have descendants, he wondered who would inherit all that he would leave behind in continuance of his calling. The LORD assured him, that he would have an heir of his own bowels. And it was so. We need not fear or feel intimidated by what we cannot yet see. God will provide a way even when we cannot see a way. In these verses we see how God is giving His servants encouragement when they feel intimidated by the unknown. We do not need to be afraid of anyone. The LORD is our light and our salvation; we do not need to be afraid of darkness or of the enemy; we have assurance in our faith in our LORD Christ Jesus. Even as the LORD was instructing and guiding Israel into the land of Egypt; He was loving in His encouragement and continued to assure them that He would be with them. God is our provider and our strength; he is our rescuer in times of distress; when we feel troubled; even if the earth shakes and trembles; we will not fear because we know He is with us. We do not need to fear bad news, we know that even in times of bad news, He will work things out for our good. And we look in triumph on our foes; because we have the MOST HIGH GOD living in our hearts; we have nothing to fear. The LORD gives us assurance; even in times of death we shall not fear because He has overcome the world! He himself has died on the cross due to the fact that they did not believe He was God. But, He raised from the dead, He beat death and reassures us that we also will beat death. And we will live forever and reign with HIM. The Holy Spirit gives us strength and courage so that we may speak boldly to all the nations in the world and proclaim His gospel and truth. He instructs us to be on guard against intimidation; to stand firm in our faith; be courageous and strong, and not allow others to intimidate us because of our faith nor to follow or serve other gods. Because we know there is no salvation for those who do follow and serve other gods or faiths. We should pray for courage; for ourselves and for one another; that we may speak boldly of the truth of the gospel of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. Because the LORD knew that there would be places in the world where believers would be imprisoned, beaten, intimidated, and even killed for their faith in the ONE and TRUE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. Christians can pray without being intimidated; thanks for the sacrifice of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ; who died on the cross and paid the penalty for our sins; we now have HIS Spirit living in our hearts and we can boldly approach the Father in heaven who hears the prayers of our hearts. And He answers them all the time; I see answered prayers every morning when I wake up and look in the mirror; I could have died long ago. But the LORD has been more than good to my parents and all others who have prayed for me. May the God of grace continue to bless all who read and believe in His majesty! God bless you all! Amen!!!!
