Day 175 – Don’t Be Afraid
25Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. 26For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Proverbs 3:25-26
‘…attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings… for they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.’ Proverbs 4:20-22
Everything that has to do with life and all you need to successfully deal with life’s challenges is found in the word of God. You might wonder what is meant in the scripture by ‘Be not afraid of sudden fear’. When this scripture gains ground in your heart, becomes part of you, and your mind-set is ordered according to this scripture; when you meet a sudden fear in life the first thing that will come to mind is that as a child of God you should not be afraid. This is what is meant by the statement ‘they that find the word of God find life.’ Because you have discovered this passage and imbibed it into your heart, when the calamities come fear will not grip you.
The same thing goes for Psalms 56:9 (and in fact all scripture!) When you sense an attack of the enemy, “when I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me” comes to mind. With this scripture, you approach the throne of God confident of a solution. This is how to live by the word of God. Living above fear even in the midst of life’s battles. May God bless you, may you find understanding as you study the word of God and apply in into your life. Amen.
