Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Why does the Lord command us to fear not? This is because He loves us. The Lord says, “Fear not,” again and again in scripture. He says to you today, “Fear not; I am with you. Fear not; I will protect you. Fear not; I will help you. Fear not; when I am on your side, who can be against you? Trust me.”
Psalm 27:1 – The LORD delivers and vindicates me! I fear no one! The LORD protects my life! I am afraid of no one!
KNOWLEDGE OF GOD
As long as a child holds his father by the hand, he fears no one. God promised to forever be with us. We must never walk in fear is because our Lord Jesus promised to be with us always, even to the end of the age. He will never leave or forsake us. He is with us and living in us. Much of our fear stems from ignorance and misinformation on the identity and character of God; and this will fade away when the light of the knowledge of God in Christ dawns in our lives.

PERFECT LOVE CAST OUT FEAR
1 John 4:18 – There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
Depression, sadness, despair are all connected to fear. Fear is cast out by His perfect love. Christ is His perfect love in us. And, this love is poured in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Our Lord sustains us with the right hand of His righteousness. Believe Him.
Romans 5:5 – and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
RIGHT HAND OF GOD
The right hand of His righteousness is Jesus Christ. He is not only seated at the right hand of God, but He is the right hand of God. Christ has already defeated the adversary for us. So, have the faith of God because greater is He that is in us than any situation, any circumstance in our lives. God is greater, higher and stronger forever.
