Isaiah 12:2 “See, God has come to save me. I will trust in Him and not be afraid. The Lord God is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation.”
On March 4, 1933, during the dark days of the depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt said in a radio speech, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
On September 7, 1851, the naturalist Henry David Thoreau wrote in his journal, “Nothing is so much to be feared as fear.”
Three centuries before that, the French essayist Montaigne wrote, “The thing of which I have the most fear is fear.”
People in all ages of history have fought their fears in one way or another, but the only thing that really conquers fear is faith in the Lord: “I will trust in Him and not be afraid!”
He is our strength, our song, and our salvation!
