Is it a coincidence that a variation of the phrase “fear not” is written 365 times in the Holy Book?
The answer found in Proverbs 16:4— the Lord has made everything for its own purpose, says an emphatic NO. This includes the Bible, by the way. We see the breakdown in 2 Timothy 3:16— All scripture is God-breathed (given by divine inspiration) and is profitable for the following. Instruction for conviction (of sin), for correction (of error and restoration to obedience), for training in righteousness (learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately— behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage); so that his people may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
In His infinite wisdom, God laid out a plan spanning generations to make the truth known to us. Paul said it this way, they know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities— his eternal power and divine nature. So, they have no excuse for not knowing God (Rom. 1:20).
So, you see, God always had you in mind, unveiling his good intentions each day. Freshly baked (daily) bread with every sunrise. You might say, how about the extra day in the leap year? To that He says, be still and know that I am God. If I have you covered for 365 days, what’s an additional day?
That’s my spiel for today y’all.
Your call to action is Fear not. Do not be afraid. Take courage. (Trust that) I am here!
Have a blessed week!
