No Fear

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

– Psalm 46:1-3 (NIV)


I imagine myself

standing on a mountain


when the ground begins to shake

and rocks start to split


the noise is deafening

and it’s hard to stay standing


I watch as mountains around me

crumble and fall into the sea


I stay standing

and I do not fear


my senses are heightened

my heart beats fast


but I do not fear


All is chaos

except inside of me


That is trust


A refusal to fear

because of who You are, God


That is the fearlessness I desire

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].

– Isaiah 41:10 (AMP)


Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.

– 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NLT)
