As we spend a little time together today, I would like to share a couple of very favorite Bible verses with you, which are found in Psalm 112:7-8, which reads… “He does not fear bad news, nor live in dread of what may happen; for he is settled in his mind that Jehovah will take care of him. 8) That is why he is not afraid but can calmly face his foes.”
I don’t know about you…but those two verses instantly speak “hope” to me! You know…I remember many times in my life, when I used to allow fear and dread, to take over my mind and heart; to the place, where I couldn’t sleep at night or sometimes even function throughout my day…that is, until God allowed these two verses to spring up within my heart.
Just think…when we come to a place in our lives, where we truly know that God will take care of us; then these thoughts alone actually causes “fear and dread” to stop powerless within their tracks; but when we feed into “fear and dread,” by attaching ourselves to a problem…we soon find that we have also attached ourselves to the symptoms of the problem.
I guess the question we need to ask ourselves is this…do we truly believe in God and the power He holds within Himself? If we don’t; then we are only going to find ourselves walking down a path of negative thinking…completely controlled by Satan.
Today, if we want to experience a true and lasting peace within our lives; then first, we need to know without a doubt; that our God will always be there to care for us. Once we truly come to this realization; that is when “fear and dread” will become a thing of the past.
