Fear not.

Proverbs 3:25-26 (new living translation)

You need not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked,

for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

Psalm 46:1-3 (Amplified version)

GOD IS our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas,

Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

The above verse was read in family devotions this morning and I found it very encouraging.

    The Lord is our security…I need to remember that when I’m tempted to fear. There are, indeed, mountains being shaken in the world today: the mountains of finance, governments, insurrections, weather patterns, etc. Our enemy, satan, uses the media to stir up fear in the population, to the point where men’s hearts will fail them for fear (Luke 21:26).

    Thanks, Noel, for bringing these verses to my attention, again.
