Fraidy Cat!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Pastor Cecil Thompson
Cecil Thompson

Isaiah 41:10

"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."

It is a miracle that many of the kids in the neighborhood survived to adulthood. The reason was that we tried many death-defying stunts at the instigation of the other kids who called us a "fraidy cat" if we didn’t do it.

Peer pressure is an extremely strong motivator. Unfortunately it is most often used in a negative way rather than encouraging spiritual excellence.

Today’s Scripture is one of the first verses I ever memorized. It has been with me throughout many ordeals in my life.

One thing that this verse has taught me is that I need not fear the things that lay in wait for me. Many situations that I have faced have been unpleasant and trying. I would have chosen to evade them, but there was no way around. I had to endure and persevere.

I want to testify to the faithfulness of my precious Lord and His infallible Word. Someone has written: "God said it—I believe it—that’s good enough for me!" I have found that to be true over and over again.

I encourage you to take to heart the promise in this verse. You need not fear since God has promised to be with you and never forsake you. Do not allow yourself to become depressed because He will give you His strength and hold you up with His powerful right hand. Man! That is good enough for me!!!

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
