But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? Psalms 56:3-4 NLT
We live in a world today where fear is always present. There are so many things that ignite fear in the hearts and minds of people that a branch of science is dedicated to study fear; they study unreasonable fear. Arithmophobia is the fear of numbers; that is an example of unreasonable fear. If you are fearful of speeding cars, most, if not all people will understand that fear because a speeding car can be a deadly weapon.
But what do you do when there is fear of tomorrow? You see, we can make sense of our today because can see our today but the unknown of our tomorrows bring fear. The Psalmist acknowledged that fear comes to everyone. It’s not a question of if, it’s when. He knew what he would do when fear came knocking at his door. His answer was to trust in God. He recognized that he can feel safe and secure in the knowledge that God has his life in His hands.
2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” A sound mind is important because you need to think clearly when fear raises its ugly head in your life. A sound mind understands that even when the situation looks hopeless, we don’t necessarily need to press the panic button. A sound mind knows that God is in control. He covers and protects during the storms of life. When you don’t know what tomorrow holds, don’t fear; trust the God who knows what your tomorrow brings and He will work things out for your good
Thought for Today: Friend, fix your eyes on the God who holds your tomorrow.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
