Psalm 23:4 (NKJV)
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
When the rug is pulled from under your feet and everything you once knew to be ‘it’ – ‘isn’t’ anymore, naturally, fear sets in.
A fear of the unknown – of nothing in your life being within your control, now that is hard to comprehend.
When we don’t know how the next bill is going to be paid, or even how we will feed our families for the rest of the month, there is something so beautiful about that vulnerability that thrusts you into the arms of the Father.
We must remind ourselves that fear does not come from God, fear is a liar and it comes with the intention of stealing our joy.
2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.
