Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Take comfort from knowing that the God of all comfort is on your side. He will help you. So why is it He says to us not to fear?
Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
The Holy Ghost is God and the power of God resides in Him. That power is sort of like the third rail in a subway system. Don’t touch it. Yet He resides with you and just as all children do, we want to handle it. A responsible parent keeps a loaded gun in a safe or lock box, away from the prying eyes of children.
The divine gifts are wielded by the Holy Spirit and demonstrated thru us to the glory of God. One must remember that being a conduit of God does not mean we wield the power. It is a privilege to be used of God and should be greeted with humility. We have done nothing.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
