We Will Not Fear

There’s a lot going to be afraid of these days. It’s enough to make a person want to hide or at least go live on a deserted island someplace pleasant.

What is your response to this low-grade fear? You know, not the fear where you’re running for your life – but the fear that seems to be ever present. Might be eating, drinking or another “drug” of choice. It might be denial. It might be movies, video games or surfing the internet.

Another option might be to turn to scripture. The Bible is full of stories of people living in fear. But the easiest place to turn would be the book of Psalms. These prayers, poems and songs touch on all the emotions of the human spectrum. The authors lead us through fear, anger, despair, hopelessness; as well as joy, amazement, gratitude and praise. Psalm 46 begins: God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.

Not sure where to find the Psalms? Take a Bible and open it to about the middle, you should find yourself right in the Psalms.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 am as we gather to praise and thank God together. It’s good for us to be together and remind one another that "we will not fear." 

"Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things will be yours." — Swedish proverb

Grace be with you,
