Because He Lives… All Fear Is Gone

Battling fear and uncertainty has the potential to possess you, to steal your joy, and make you feel like your losing your mind. I love this verse, because we are reminded that “God” alone is to be the stronghold of our life! We all struggle and need the hope of Jesus Christ. As I read this verse, I was convicted, because I have fallen into a trap of feeling fearful often. I do not want anything to be the stronghold of my life, especially not fear! Satan uses fear to wreak havoc on our minds and souls. I am seeking to replace any stronghold of fear in my life, with God! God alone is the stronghold of my life! When I keep God as the stronghold of my soul, all fear is gone. God always has a way of leading me to the perfect words from His word to speak into my hearts and brokenness!

This past Sunday, I sat in church and we began singing the old hymn “Because He Lives”! As the words on the projector ahead read “Because He lives … ALL fear is gone!” The dam of my soul broke and the tears flowed like a never ending waterfall. God simply reminded me the most profound and basic truth; Because of Christ’s death & resurrection… I DO NOT have to live in fear! I can rest knowing that God has always been, will always be, and will forever be in control of everything that happens in this world and in my life!

If your struggling with fear today, you are not alone! Me too! However, we absolutely do not have to continue battling fear… We can live in peace, joy, and hope simply because Christ arose in victory over this world’s greatest enemy!

“Because He Lives”

God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;

He came to love, heal and forgive;

He lived and died to buy my pardon

An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow

Because He lives, all fear is gone;

Because I know He holds the future

And life is worth the living

Just because He lives!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby

And feel the pride and joy he gives;

But greater still the calm assurance:

This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow

Because He lives, all fear is gone;

Because I know He holds the future

And life is worth the living

Just because He lives!

And then one day, I’ll cross the river

I’ll fight life’s final war with pain;

And then, as death gives way to victory

I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know He lives!
