Freedom from Fear

How is it possible to not fear bad news?  I just read today’s newspaper from top to bottom—bad news everywhere. The nations are in conflict. Racial tension is high. Politics has found a new low. Financial institutions cannot be trusted. Can it be that I am called to not fear?  How can that be possible? Yet the Psalmist said of God’s people,

They do not fear bad news, they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. Psalm 112:7 NLT

When I confidently trust God in my circumstances fear has no power over me. Trusting Him frees my heart to reflect the light of God rather than the darkness of the world.

Light shines in the darkness for the godly.  They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.  Psalm 112:4

That is good news!  Join me this week in freedom from fear, empowered to live a generous, compassionate and righteous life.
