Fear Not Verse of the Day – Genesis 46:3 – Uncertainty

And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:

Fear of Uncertainty

When my husband and I moved up north, I had lots of uncertainties. Will this be a good move? Is this God’s will for my family? Will this lead us astray from God? Are we going to survive the cold winter? Are we going to be okay? A lot of questions, mostly what-ifs, bothered my mind. And every time, since my husband and I got saved, our default action when faced with confusion, uncertainty and hardship are the scriptures and prayer.

Some people might say, “Oh! But the Bible does not answer your questions clearly. It only adds to the confusion.” Maybe, not just how our human brains want the answer to be presented. Take this verse, for example, Jacob felt uncertain to move his entire clan to Egypt. Although, he was certain that he would want to see his son, Joseph. Furthermore, he was uncertain if he had made the right decision to uproot his entire family from the land where they had prospered to a new land where they will be sojourners. But God has another plan for Israel’s family. And God assured him to not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will make you into a great nation. I myself will go down with you to Egypt, (v.3-4 ESV). The only thing that is clear is that God wants us to trust in Him for He plans everything in our life for our good.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, in all life’s uncertainties we call unto your Holy Name. You are in control of everything and nothing surprises you. We ask, Lord, that you guide us in every decision we make, whether big or small. Grant us, Holy Spirit, the gift of discernment to know the right actions and decisions to make when we are uncertain. Knowing you will guide us towards Jesus Christ, our Saviour. In whose name we pray, Amen.
