Fear No Evil

Psalm 23:4, NIV: Even 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.
Have you ever wondered if you have walked through the valley of the shadow of
death? Perhaps you have. Perhaps you have had troubled times but are not certain
you would go so far as to say you have walked through times where death seemed
looming--almost imminent. David knew what it was like to be surrounded by an
enemy that sought to take his life. But he knew His God watched over him like a
shepherd over sheep. The knowledge that God’s protection was always present gave
David peace and contentment. “Your rod and your staff, they comfort me” he said.
God watches over us during the day, and He keeps watch over us by night. And
even in our times when death is looming, and tragedy imminent, we do not need to
fear evil--for God will take us through the most dangerous, and darkest of
valleys--and faithfully bring us to the other side.
