Most of Paul’s letters begin the same way: “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Beloved, His grace is His favor that is poured out upon His children even when we do not deserve it. It is possible for us to boldly proclaim, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?” (Heb. 13:6). If the Lord is our helper, He will never leave us nor forsake us. He will enable us to do what we need to do, to say what we need to say, and to be what we need to be. That’s what grace is all about. If people oppose us, we should see them as instruments in God’s hands to refine us.
Are you afraid of suffering? God’s grace is sufficient for you. Are you afraid of growing old? God’s grace is sufficient for you. Are you afraid of dying? God’s grace is sufficient for you. Beloved, no matter what your fear might be, God’s grace is there for you; empowering you to be free from fear, to overcome, and be victorious. Because God’s grace is at work in our lives, there is nothing to fear. He will be with us and His grace will be working on our behalf. Jesus has overcome the world on our behalf. Through Him, we can overcome the world as well. Look at how God’s grace helped the apostle Paul in the midst of hardship.
“And now, behold, bound by the Spirit, I am on my way to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit solemnly testifies to me in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me. But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:22-24).
Paul had no fear of suffering because God’s amazing grace had set him free from fear. He was ready to die for the sake of Messiah Jesus. It’s possible for us to have this same strength from the Holy Spirit; empowering us to go through any situation we may face without fear.
