The Lord is my Helper, I shall not be afraid.
What a statement! Just as I write it, my mind is filled with potential fears.
Fears of losing those I love, fears of falling ill, fears of financial strain and fears of failure.
But… the Lord is my Helper, Whom (or what) shall I fear?
The Bible is full of statements that seem to contradict our human experience.
Yet, He shows up time and again proving His Word is true
And on this Rock, we stand.
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I give thanks to Him with my song. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.” Psalm 28:7
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:1
