Psalm 56:3 (NIV), “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”
Fear can alter the way we think and act. It can cause us to take our eyes off of God, and focus on whatever it is that is causing us to be fearful. There are so many reasons to be afraid, but when fear tries to consume us, we can choose to trust in God instead.
I like this verse because the Psalmist made a decision that every time He was afraid, he would trust God. He planned ahead so that he could be victorious over fear. That inspires me to do the same. I hope it inspires you too.
Life is forever changing and that alone can evoke feelings of fear and insecurity. Even when we think we have things under control, the unexpected can happen and quickly change the course of things. We should make plans for our lives, but we must trust God for the final outcome.
I pray that you will walk in confidence knowing that God will keep you safe. Whenever fear tries to trouble your heart, I pray that He will give you peace. Keep trusting in Him and find comfort in His love. He’s working things out for you.
