I am so thankful for the Word of God and the power that it has in my life. If you aren't careful, you could find yourself overcome by fear as you look around our world, nation, or even your own city and see what is going on. Face it, the news is full of negative reports, contradicting stories, and political scandal. Racial tension is on the rise, and Christian values are under attack. With the swirl caused by biased media reports, and viral social media posts.......we could find ourselves feeling defeated and hopeless.
I am so thankful that as a Believer in Jesus Christ my hope does not rest on the shoulders of world leaders, nor on positive news reports.....my hope rests in Christ alone.
Psalm 91 is an amazing portion of scripture and one that causes peace to rest in our hearts as Christians.
91:4-6, 10 says, "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.....no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent."
What a wonderful promise from the Word of God! Even when we feel that things are out of control and chaotic.....which is often!....we have hope through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!! Now that is something to shout about!!
So the next time you are watching the news and you find your heart rate starting to rise.....take a deep breath and open your Word to Psalm 91. The Lord is our refuge!!!
