“The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.” (Psalm 121:5-6)
What is there to fear? Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Come into the Lord’s presence and do not be afraid of what is in the world. Come to the One who created the world. Know His goodness and see that He who made you knows all that is needed. Be guided by the truth of His Word and know that He watches over you and will keep you according to His purpose.
Lord, the world is often a scary place. I fear the things that are around me. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would not falter nor slip because of the fear the world brings. Grant that I would become bold in the faith You have given me and stand fast knowing You are always with me. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth, for You are truth and the way You have established is life.
Lord Jesus, You have come to save, to rescue and to lead those who would come through You to eternity. Yes, there are things that are around me that I fear. Yes, there are things to be afraid of, but who will prevail over You? You are the One who commands and it is so. When You said it is finished, You declared that nothing in all of creation is able to separate us from You. Grant my heart to know the truth of this comforting word. Amen.
