Do Not Be Afraid – 3

Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” … Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous.”

“Do not be afraid,” Samuel replied. “You have done all this evil; yet do not turn away from the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart.”

The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.”

David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.”

Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Jahaziel … as he stood in the assembly. He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.’”

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. … The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?

The LORD is with me; he is my helper. I look in triumph on my enemies. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in humans. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.
