Jeremiah 42:11 Do not fear the king of Babylon, of whom you are afraid. Do not fear him, declares the LORD, for I am with you, to save you and to deliver you from his hand.
More on fear! Enemies come in all shapes and sizes. Some are big, some are small, some are sweet and some are thoroughly horrible. But the universal response of those who trust in the God of Israel should be not to fear. However big or nasty, however small and apparently insignificant, the people who come against us, or whom we come up against, are nothing compared to the Lord our God. We and God are always a majority! The Lord our God has already promised to deliver us from the hand of our enemies.
