In Times of Fear
by Randy Chambers, 2009-06-26
Psalm 56:10-11, NIV: In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD ,
whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
In uncertain times--times of loss, fear, or trouble--we have a refuge. He is, as
He was to David, our Rock and Salvation. Indeed--what can anyone do to us?
Years ago when my daughter was a small child, Psalm 56:10-11 became her comfort in
her times of fear. A friend had put the verses on a bookmark for her to remind her
of her Heavenly Father's constant protection. My daughter went as far as to make up
a song out of the verses. And so it was, that in this first passage she memorized,
that she found peace. The same peace we all have so long as we set our eyes upon He
who is forever, and always will be, our Rock.
