WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE AFRAID?
“But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I praise God for what he has promised. I trust God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?” Psalm 56:3-4 NLT
There are many times in our lives that we face trials and challenging situations that can be very overwhelming and can cause us to be afraid. The psalmist made it clear in this chapter like many other chapters he wrote that the only way to overcome fear when we are troubled by the situations around us is to trust in the Lord and to remember His promises towards us. How easy should this or can this be? Many of us believers tend to take up fear and allow it to dominate our hearts instead of u simply trusting in the Lord, that He alone can deliver us from every problem we face, no matter how big and difficult it might look!
Remember His promises in Isaiah 43:2- “when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze”.
So whatever situation you may be facing today, remember not to allow fear to takeover. Simply put your trust in the Lord and keep His promises to your heart!
Lord, I choose to trust You over every situation in my life and I thank you for your promises and I know that I am an overcomer in Jesus name. Amen.
