Fear is a Liar

Wednesday - August 5th Scripture to Read for Today's Devotional: Isaiah 41:10-13

Today's Selection from our Sermon on the Mount Reading Plan: Matthew 5:21-26

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed,

for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.

Isaiah 41:10

This past weekend the title of my message from Matthew 6:25-34 was "Worry is a Liar." We talked about how worry feeds us lies. Jesus clearly declared the truth that contrasts the lies. The song "Fear is a Liar" by Zach Williams inspired the title of my message. Read the lyrics to the song for your self. 

When he told you you're not good enough

When he told you you're not right

When he told you you're not strong enough

To put up a good fight

When he told you you're not worthy

When he told you you're not loved

When he told you you're not beautiful

That you'll never be enough

Fear, he is a liar

He will take your breath

Stop you in your steps

Fear, he is a liar

He will rob your rest

Steal your happiness

Cast your fear in the fire

'Cause fear he is a liar

When he told you you were troubled

You'll forever be alone

When he told you you should run away

You'll never find a home

When he told you you were dirty

And you should be ashamed

When he told you you could be the one

That grace could never change

Fear, he is a liar

He will take your breath

Stop you in your steps

Fear, he is a liar

He will rob your rest

Steal your happiness

Cast your fear in the fire

'Cause fear he is a liar

Let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears

Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel

Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel

Oh, fear he is a liar

He will take your breath

Stop you in your steps

Fear, he is a liar

He will rob your rest

Steal your happiness

Cast your fear in the fire

'Cause fear he is a liar

'Cause fear he is a liar*


God promises us that we do not have to listen to the lies that fear whispers to us. In Isaiah 41:10, we hear the voice of God telling us, "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God." We do not have to be overwhelmed with worry or be dismayed by life. God is with us. We are never alone. As His children, He is our God and watches over us.


Below you will find the link to the Youtube video of the song, "Fear is a liar." Watch the video or reread the lyrics. Remind yourself that the truth can only be found in your God, not in fear or worry.


Remember, God is with you wherever you go. You have no reason to fear!
