...have no fear.
Every day there is another announcement or report of some impending disaster, some threatening situation that is certain to adversely affect us if we don't act now, if we don't change this or that. Rumors abound which are meant to hurt us emotionally, spiritually, and physically. We are sent emails and tweets and read statuses that could freeze the blood in our veins if not for the comfort we have in the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.
"He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD." Psalm 112:7
No matter what goes on around us, God is in control. No matter who tries to hurt us or destroy our joy, God lives within us. No matter who rejects us, God accepts us. No matter who hates us, God loves us. No matter who betrays us, God is faithful. No matter what changes come to us, God is steadfast and unchangeable. No matter what government is against us, God is for us. What shall we fear?
