“But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”

– Isaiah 43:1

The thing that kills people in a battle is not swords and spears. It’s panic; it’s fear. It’s running away. But you’re tougher than that. You may feel like you’re about to give up – like you’re going to collapse – just keep fighting five seconds longer. I want you to know something … you might be afraid, but I want you to know the enemy is afraid, too. He is afraid because his future is sealed. All he has left in life is to make life worse for you. But you are going to win that fight because the banner of love, the name of the Lord, the name of Jesus is a strong name. It is a strong name and it is a name that will have victory over your battle.


Thank you, God, for your name. Give me the strength to face fear and to win the battle.


Do you trust in your banner of love from God?

  3. Jesus took the wrath of God upon Himself when He died on the cross for us. God is strong, but he is not wrathful or “very dangerous”. What is dangerous is not accepting Christ and leaving yourself open to the devil’s attacks. Who would want to love a God who is wrathful and very dangerous? God is love, according to the Bible. I am usually with you, but you are wrong on this. We are under the New Covenant, not the Old Covenant. Jesus paid it all with His blood.

  4. Also, your creed downplays the majesty of Jesus when it calls him merely our “friend”. Jesus Christ is our Savior. Big difference.

    1. Hi, Karen!

      You’re totally right! Jesus is our mighty, powerful, and dangerously good Savior. But we also get to know Him as our friend — how lucky we are!
