Not Afraid

Fear is everywhere.  Social media.  The news.  The grocery store….

It’s easy to be overcome by fear, but Psalm 56:3 reminds us, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Our God is before us, behind us, and always beside us.  Deuteronomy 1:30 tells us, “The Lord your God who goes before you will Himself fight on your behalf…”

Church, let us rest in the fact that our God has declared victory.  Let us find peace in the storm knowing our God is for us, not against us, and fights on our behalf!


Lyrics

I have this confidence because
I’ve seen the faithfulness of God
The still inside the storm, the promise of the shore

I trust the power of Your word
Enough to seek Your kingdom first
Beyond the barren place, beyond the ocean waves 

When I walk through the waters I won’t be overcome
When I go through the rivers I will not be drowned
My God will make a way so I am not afraid

You keep the promises You make
There isn’t one that is delayed
So I will not lose heart, here I will lift my arms
And start to sing into the night
My praise will call the sun to rise
Declare the battle won, declare that it is done 

When I walk through the waters I won’t be overcome
When I go through the rivers I will not be drowned
My God will make a way so I am not afraid
When I am in the fire I will not feel the flames
I’ll stand before the giant, declaring victory
My God will make a way, so I am not afraid

Before me, behind me, always beside me
No shadow, no valley where you won’t find me
I am not afraid
No, I am not afraid

Before me, behind me, always beside me
No shadow, no valley where you won’t find me
No, I am not afraid
No, I am not afraid

When I walk through the waters I won’t be overcome
When I go through the rivers I will not be drowned
My God will make a way so I am not afraid
I am not afraid

When I am in the fire I will not feel the flames
I’ll stand before the giant, declaring victory
My God will make a way, so I am not afraid
My God will make a way, so I am not afraid

No, I am not afraid
No, I am not afraid
