When life tosses you about like the raging sea
When the road you walk is perilously rough
When the darkness is such that you cannot see
Fear not, my child, for I am always with you

When wars threaten to overtake and defeat you
When the enemies’ snares are all over your path
When their boastings sound so scary and true
Fear not, my child, for I will fight for you

I knew you long before you came to be
I knew that these challenges will test your faith
I knew that in me you’ll have the victory
So fear not my child, and stand your ground

    • Reminds me of a popular song: Waymaker, miracle worker, light in the darkness, My God, that is who You are…. Bless you, Chidi!

    • Why indeed, my dear? But fear can be so irrational and it can get overwhelming sometimes. That is why God constantly assures His children of His presence and power and admonishes them not to be afraid. Enjoy God’s favour always, Chibuzor, in Jesus’ name.

  1. Yes, because our God is an awesome God… He has given us victory, we need not to be afraid of any situation because he is aware of everything… We give him all the glory

    • Amen. If only we can remember that in the face of trials… But He upholds us despite our often limited view of Him. Bless you, Anderline!

  2. The Bible says that “His Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path….” Therefore I see no reason why any child of God should fear cus he has shone his light on our way and is taking the lead for us to follow. Even in the midst of our challenges, He still shows himself mightier than our troubles…. He is Jehovah and every mountain levels before him.. So this poem should serve as an encouragement and reminder to every Christian that His love remaineth forever and that his mighty hand is strong behind us even in the worst of situations, so we shall surely come out victorious. He that is with us is greater than he that is in the world and also greater than all our troubles… So “fear not, my child” is what the Lord is saying to somebody today!!!!!! Nice one Ma

  3. Jehova Nissi is his name (the lord is our banner) if he is with u it means u are safe dats why u should not be afraid.thank u ma

  4. It is very true that God has something to tell us in his word that addresses every situation we pass through, it makes me realize that I’m not alone, that God is with me. I’m really blessed.

    • Glory to God! Thanks a million, Rita! I pray it strengthens the heart of believers who read it in Jesus’ name.

  5. The title captured my attention, thanks for the “word” it has lifted a soul. Job 41:2 says “I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee”.

  6. Its like this poem was specially written for me, because am going through a lot that recently I don’t know my left from my right and I keep asking God questions day in day out. Thank you for this piece. God bless you ma.

    • No, He never does! He is a faithful God! Thanks for calling on me, Carlie! Grace upon grace on your ministry in Jesus’ name.

  7. Fear Not, My Child!

    when your dreams seem to fade away
    when poverty titillates and titivates before your mirror
    when hope seems to be hopeless
    when the atmosphere changes her face without your consent
    fear not, my child!

    Isaiah 43:1 says, ” 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”.

    Though, it is written that we should not be afraid of anything but the issue i want to raise here is that of a late Christian brother i met sometime ago who was cautioned not to go out one very night for vigil due to the rampant armed robbery cases in his area. instead of listening to them, he gave them bible verses saying that a Christian should not be afraid of anything. To cut the story short, he was eventually killed that night.
    The fact that we are covered by the blood of Jesus doesn’t mean that when we see danger, we should put our hands in it.

    • Very good point, Deacon, very good! When the devil tzold Jesus to jump down from a height that the Scriptures promise that God will send angels to catch Him, Jesus responded that the Scriptures also say that you should not tempt the Lord your God.

  8. When God is for us, who can be against us? NOBODY.. fear not, for he is with us and his mercy endures forever…

  9. This write up reminds me of two songs by Don Meon.. Give thanks to the holy one… and God will make a way where there seems to be no way… So with this, I can’t be afraid.. God is with me ..
    # fear not friends, God is with us

  10. your titles are always captivating and eye-catching…very nice…i really love the poem…His love is unending

    • Thank you, my dear! It’s wisdom from above. God alone deserves the glory for it. Have a blessed new week, Chiamaka!

  11. God really made so much emphasis on “fear not” for it to sink deeply in our heads so in times of difficulties and challenges we must fear not. am beginning to see it as a command and not just a statement .. Nice work

    • “fear not. am beginning to see it as a command and not just a statement.” I love that. Bless you, Henrietta!

  12. Nice poem. The last stanza struck me. It threw me back to what the Lord said to Prophet Jeremiah when the prophet was quite younger, “before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee……” The prophet wanted to avoid God’s assignment by all means with the ‘concrete’ excuse that he was a child. You know, it struck me with this feeling that God’s gat my back. Halleluiah! So therefore no vacancy for fear. Thank you ma, you are such a blessing. God punish the devil. Well done

  13. Nice one ma! this is a very wonderful piece, especially in this period of economic recession. A quick look at this piece will remind us that the lord HV not forsaken us. all we need to do is to have faith in God and he will see us through. thank u ma!

  14. Surely, there is no need to fear for our God is there. Thanks for healing our hearts with your posts ma.

  15. The lord is my Sheperd, I shall not want….. This poem has encouraged me, it has made me understand that no matter what am going through even in my darkest night he is there with me , his words to me are FEAR NOT MY CHILD because he is with me he prepares a table before me in the presence of ma enemy, his rod and his staff they comfort me, why should I be afraid? He is with me just like he was with the children of isreal in the dessert, this poem is really encouraging

  16. This poem is very nice. We need to have faith in God and always be strong in times of challenges because he will always be there to set us free

  17. I know my God is alive so I have no fear. Oh Lord, please do not leave me, even when am at my weakest.

  18. I loved this. As humans, fear one way or another creeps in, but with such great assurance God has given us, we have absolutely nothing to fear

  19. When their boastings sound so scary and true, I will not fear. Fear has been a weapon Satan keeps enslaving many Christians with. I pray God sees us through. We are overcomers IJN.

  20. This poem speaks a thousand words to one who has just lost someone or something. You lose your job, you become so scared of feeding and every other thing that comes with not having a stable source of income. You lose a loved one, the fears are endless. But “fear not!”, He always says. Thank you very much ma for this piece.

  21. I love this. Even in the most trying times, God still shows us that he is faithful. That his word is yea and amen, and that they never return to him unfulfilled.

  22. What a great poem! What assuring words of the Father’s loving care. Thank Ma for this inspirational poem.

  23. Peter had fear in him and began to sink. God is always telling us not to fear that he is always with us.

    The moment we begin to fear, our enemies begin to penetrate.

    So, we should always trust in God no matter what.

  24. very soothing. the poem is a reminder of God’s Unassailable attention towards every difficulty we find ourselves in.
    all we need is to be patient and wait 4 his time, which is never longer than it seems.

  25. Oh! how fear cripples
    Its whisper is only of defeat
    But only with Godly struggles
    Will we achieve it all

    May God continually strengthen us and give us the grace to push through in perilous times. Bless you ma.

  26. Prayerfulness is not an event; it is a way of being in relationship with God. “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.” — ‎Isaiah 41:11

  27. I will fear not, not because I have the power but because I believe in Him. Nice choice of encouraging words Aunty

  28. Why fear when he is by our side. Why fear when he rules everything all forces and powers fall at his feet. A great God he is in the time of the storm. Thank you ma for reminding us of his promises. A really motivational one.

  29. The thought of God towards me is the thought of good and not evil, to give an expected end. So why should I be scared?

  30. I have no reason to fear because God is always by my side. His will for me is of good and not evil and so, I need not to fear.

  31. Wonderful! While reading this poem, I felt like a princess, whose father is whispering to her ear not to FEAR. And I know am a daughter of Zion, I shall fear not. This is great. God bless you, MA.

  32. Wow, this post is inspiring because it shows God’s sovereignty over all things which is why he said we should fear not. We should always remember that temptations will come but since God stands by us, we would overcome. In fact each victory would help us, some others to win

  33. This poem serves as an encouragement and reminder to every Christian that God’s love remains forever and His mighty hand is strong behind us even in the worst of situations, so we shall surely come out victorious. God bless you ma dis poem is very motivating

  34. Very encouraging, as Christians we should have the mind set that we are in the protective hands of God always and forever

  35. When wars threaten to overtake and defeat you
    When the enemies’ snares are all over your path
    When their boastings sound so scary and true
    Fear not, my child, for I will fight for you

    This really struck a chord in my heart, thank you! The Lord is always with me as long as i abide by his standards and requirements recorded in the bible.

  36. Life can be really depressing and hard, trust me! Sometimes it could sap your will power to live and makes you think”Why me?” But your poems serve to recall to our minds that the Lord would always be with us and he cares for us and in time would create a way out of any trying situation.

  37. This poem teaches that
    – we should not be afraid of troubles and temptations. they are inevitable but we will overcome them later.
    – we should not be afraid of challenges. they are to test our faith

  38. Am really short of words. God is so wonderful. His love is incomparable. Even if we don’t deserve his Love, he still loves and cares about us and gives us hope in our time of distress. i wanna take this time to congratulate our mummy whom God has used to inspire us vwith these motivational words.

  39. Wow!!! This is encouraging. Thanks to Almighty God who renders hope to the hopeless, this write-up is motivating.

  40. Even when life gives us 100 reasons to cry and be dismayed,we should not be afraid because God is always with us. He said in His word that”He would never leave us nor forsake us”

  41. Not recognizing the presence of God in one’s life, feels really scary and lonely.
    Whoever has God, has it all.
    May God continue to direct and guard our parts, while calling us back whenever we go or try to go astray. Amen.

  42. What can one do without God? I know my day is blessed – with this poem..God, always be there for me – in my happy and difficult moment.

  43. Amen! For i know he is always with me, even in my tears. I could hear his voice assuring me all is well. God bless you ma, for making these wordr ever fresh in my heart

  44. Ma I enjoy going through your poems, this is because they give me words of encouragement when i am down, they make me believe that God is ever with me and whoever has God has it all. Thank you ma!

  45. God’s love for His children is reflected through word and His faithfulness in fulfilling it. It is His desire that we stand courageous and fearless.

  46. I wonder what why on earth we should fear again after reading this assurance from God. Thank you so much ma for this message u passed to us

  47. One with God is majority and as such, one need not be afraid of whatever controversy or troubles that may befall them. All things are possible with God and there is nothing we cannot do. Realising the power bestowed on u by God is wonderful. You find out that you are untouchable, imvinsible to evil and enemies.

  48. Fear, just like worry, changes nothing. Confidence and total trust in God is key. Thank you Ma for this post, I’ll hold on to it like gold.

  49. The words of the lord is truth and endures forever and in his words do I hold my faith the lord’s words is my strength and my strong tower. I will fear nothing because in him I put my trust because he has called to me not to be afraid and just to trust him. Lord recognize your word to me today through Aunty Edith and I accept it, I embrace it with all my heart, shield me from the dangers of the world. Amen

  50. Fear not! Fear not!. He is our father and he would never let go of us.. He would protect is from all evil. Why should I fear when the Lord is not at sleep?

  51. The lord is my shepherd and my protector,I shall fear not any evil .He knew me before I was born and am sure that He will not allow any harm to come upon me,so I shall fear not.

  52.

Thank u ma for this wonderful post.may u remain bless ma

  53. When God is with us, nothing can throw us down. That’s why we should not fear. Great poem on its own, very encouraging. We should be at peace every time for He says “fear not”.

  54. These words are very encouraging. We really need to be reminded of God’s promises, that one should not fear. He knew us before we came to exist. He brings us forth be and guides us. Fear is never necessary. Blessed.

  55. Hearty words there. God knows we would face whatever we would face, and Grace is available to overcome. Only abide in Him and faint not.

  56. It is important to remove fear from our hearts. Fear of the unknown, fear of adversaries and enemies should never exist . God has given us charge over all evil. And gas given us the authority to seal things on earth and in heaven…it is up to us to utilize this privilege and make sure that the enemies who attack us regret that move.

  57. Why should I be afraid when I know who my father is..
    I can’t fear any thing because he will always protect me from my enemies
    My God my lover..

  58. God is amazing, when you walk with him, fear wouldn’t be an obstacle. You’d be so courageous to face the challenges of life, as a matter of fact, they won’t be so challenging

  61. Though the road be perilous, he is always there. In times of fainting, he would guide me with his hand, and lead me to heaven.

  62. perfect! God is indeed a mighty and changeless one we should always believe in him even when we are having hard times or difficult situations we should not fear or give up because he is always there to deliver us. whatever circumtances we are going through in life is aware and knows that we cannot be overcomed by it but only preparing us for something greater that is why he said we nshould fear not. ma are really a blessin to humanity and God continue to enrich you with more wisdom

  63. God is more than a Father to us. This poem really blessed me cos it reminds me that though tough times may rage, He’s just behind me whispering comforting words.
    His whispers dispels all forms of fear and doubt.
    God bless you richly MA.

  67. He said, “before you were born, I know you” so no matter how tough life is and no matter the trials and tribulations, I will not fear because I have a father who’s bigger than all my problems.

  68. Thank you ma for the nourishing and strength filled poem. Trust in God for he will not forsake his own people and trusting in him brings the strength that you will use to overcome every of your challenges in this life.
    [Fear not, my child, for I will fight for you
    I knew you long before you came to be
    I knew that these challenges will test your faith] I know he will save us from our different challenges amen.

  69. In Psalms 23:4, it says: yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. This is the kind of confidence I have in God and nothing can make me waver.

  70. Christianity is a life, floods, fire and so many beautiful things will come but we must understand that Christianity is not a love garden where we expect to see flowers all the time.

  71. Fear not since God is by your side. He has given us the dominion and power to conquer Satan. Whenever you call on him he answers, he is always there for us do not be afraid of anything. God never fail those who have faith and trust in him. Thank you ma for this motivational post

  73. This post is really strengthening. When the Lord is for us, who can be against us? From the beginning, he has been protecting his people. We can stand our ground in any situation if we have Jesus in our lives. He will always give us victory in every situation; With HIM who strengthens us, we can do all things. There is no cause to fear.

  74. Being afraid or scared often comes when one doesn’t trust. They both work hand in hand. So now God is telling us not to fear. We can only do this by trusting God with our whole heart.
    And let’s have at the back of our mind not to fear because God is with us at all times

  75. God is still God, no matter what life turns out to be.
    Psalm 91 says “he that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty”. I stand solidly on this declaration.

  76. 2timothy 1 Vs 7 for God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self discipline

  77. Fear not my Child. No matter the situation you are in presently, it may seem like God is not aware but he knows and he is the reason you have not lost everything.

  78. Thank u ma for this beautiful reminder that i am protected and loved by the almighty God.some times i forget that my father in heaven will always be their for me.

  79. Really encouraging. I shall not fear because I trust him enough to always save me. I trust him enough to deliver from my captors. I trust home enough to provide, shield and love me. I trust him so,so so much. And so, I shall not fear and like David said, even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, Lord I fear not for your victorious arms is wrapped around me like swaddling linens.

  80. This is the anchor scripture of life. 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.

  81. “I knew you long before you came to be, I knew that these challenges would test your faith, but in me you would find victory”, that’s powerful ma’am, may God Keep blessing you.

  82. I sincerely delight in the Bible verse that tells us to fear not because God will never leave us nor forsake us.

  83. “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for thou art with me”. I believe so much in this passage.
