Matthew 10:26 “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”
Therefore, do not be afraid of them. Why? Because Jesus has been treated the same. He has been ridiculed and hated and called names and persecuted and killed. Therefore, do not be afraid. In the end, it will all be known. How you’ve been wronged. How hard it has been. How unfair you have been treated. The lies and accusations, the words spoken against you. They will all be revealed. You will be vindicated. “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” Romans 12:19.
Those who do evil are afraid of the truth, afraid of the light. “Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.” John 3:19. But those that walk in the truth need not fear it when it is proclaimed from the rooftops. The enemy will try to keep the children of light in the darkness. He uses our mistakes, our failures, our sins to keep us in fear. He reminds us daily of what we have said and done. Are you afraid of the truth today? Do not be afraid of the truth. I like the way Chuck Swindoll put it in a recent blog, “You can count on this—the past ended one second ago. From this point onward, you can be clean.” And we know the One that makes us clean. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
Therefore, do not be afraid of them, do not be afraid of … You fill in the rest.
