No Fear Here

by | Feb 28, 2023 | Fear, Obedience, Storms

“Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and staff protect and comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4 NLT)

“For He will rescue me from every trap and protect me from deadly disease.” (Psalm 91:3 NLT)

I got a disturbing diagnosis last week. To say I wasn’t happy is an understatement. Emotions ran wild for awhile. Yesterday as I was reading my Bible, I was reading Psalm 23 as I do every morning. Verse 4 jumped out at me. God said, “read that again.” So I did. He said, “See? Didn’t I keep you from panicking? Didn’t I keep you calm? I am here and always will be. There is no need for fear or panic.”

As I looked back over my life, I can see where God carried me over rough spots. He kept his hands on me, keeping me calm during the storms of life. Then I went to Psalm 91. I read this daily too. Again, God stopped me at verse 3 and said, “Here is another example. Read it carefully.” 

So I did. Again, I could see Him taking care of me. God so loved me that He sent Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. How can I ever repay that debt? There is only one way, to live my life for Him. To obey His commandments and be the best me I possibly can be.

That’s what God wants, our obedience and love. That’s not asking a lot, is it? Just like any loving parent, obedience and love. So I encourage you today to listen to our Heavenly Father and give Him your obedience and love.

Have a blessed day everyone.
