Read In Touch Daily Devotional – 7 January 2022 Written By Dr Charles Stanley

TOPIC: The Landmine of Fear

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 41:8-10

“But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, Descendant of Abraham My friend,

You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its remotest parts And said to you, `You are My servant, I have chosen you and not rejected you.

`Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

MESSAGE

Since our world has many dangers, we have legitimate reasons to be afraid. But Christians shouldn’t live in trepidation as a way of life, because God’s awesome promises allow us to be at peace in every circumstance.

For our protection, God has instilled some natural apprehensions in us, like a fear of snakes or deep water. He also gave us a warning system so that we could react quickly to danger. For instance, if a car speeds toward us, an instantaneous reaction of alarm could save our life.

But a constant, all-consuming dread is unhealthy. Most of our fears relate to dangers that might occur, threatening the welfare of loved ones, financial stability, or future security. Our attention is then centred on these concerns rather than on the One who promises to hold us in His hand (Isa. 41:10). As anxiety grows, trust in the Lord weakens, and we become consumed with worry.

Instead of going down this route, ground yourself in Scripture, and don’t allow apprehension to blind you to God’s promises. Believe what He has said in 2 Thessalonians 3:16, and ask “the Lord of peace” to “continually grant you peace in every circumstance.”

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 24-25

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Though some apprehension is healthy, fear shouldn’t be a way of life for the Christian.

Founded in 1977 by Dr Charles Stanley, In Touch evolved out of a half-hour program called “The Chapel Hour,” which aired on Atlanta-area television stations. Today, the current “In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley” can be heard around the world via radio and television broadcasts, podcasts, the handheld In Touch Ministries Messenger, In Touch apps, and on this website.
