Do Not Fear

Our world is upside down being controlled by fear. Fear of sickness, fear of financial loss, fear of storms, fear to live life as they knew it. People fear that the world is coming to an end and they won’t be ready. Frankly we are simply overwhelmed with fear and if we are not careful one can slip into the realms of fear as well. It is time to call out to Jesus, take hold of the promises and claim them as our own.

“Yes, you came when I called; you told me, Do not fear.” Lamentations 3:57 NLT

Higher Ground
by Johnson Oatman, Jr. 1898

(Verse 2)

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.


Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith on Canaan’s tableland;
A higher plane than I have found,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground

(Verse 4)

I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.


I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

  1. Hi Shawna, thank you for your email, and the beautiful picture u painted, it is very beautiful. Yes, we are in a scary time but GOD is still on the throne and He remembers His own. There is one scripture that has been speaking to me for a long time…Psalm 46: 10 Be still and know that I am God….He there for us if we will be still and consider Him.
    Much love
