Do Not Fear
In the afternoon sony got sick. Her whole body seemed to be hurting, arms and legs were heavy as lead and behind her eyes there was a very unpleasant pressure. She couldn’t be bothered to move, she felt paralysed. The doctor was called. He said he would come as soon as possible. Maybe I have cancer, she thought, or leukemia or tuberculosis. If it is so they will give me lots of milk to drink and wrap me in lots of blankets and make me lie in a deckchair in the sun – if the sun is shining. And to my left and to my right only people with tuberculosis, and constantly you hear them coughing. Some get well again, but every day you can hear: So and so has passed away and what’s his name won’t make it much longer. If it is cancer they will have to operate. No, it would be terrible if they would have to amputate an arm or a leg. Then I would be – disabled. She imagined, imagined and imagined. But then the doctor came felt her pulse and sony had to open her mouth and show her tongue and then it was only the flu. sony could have cried from frustration.
My dear friends sometimes even we fear for unnecessarily. Job says “For the thing which I greatly feared has come upon me, and that which I was afraid of has come unto me. Job 3:25” So we need not fear for anything because our Lord says ‘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.’ Isaiah 41:10. David had firm faith in the lord and that’s why he says “ I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4 even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4.
