Psalm 56:3  “But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.” (NLT)

Why does the Bible include 366 commands to Fear Not? Why are we told so often to stop being afraid? Because God is bigger than whatever causes us fear. Nothing we ever face is capable of getting between us and God’s love for us. (See Romans 8:35 and following.)

King David gives us perspective. David knew fear. He also knew God. He knew which was bigger, stronger, faster. He knew who to turn to when the hair stood up on his neck and his heart pounded.

“But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.”

He ran to his rock, his refuge, his hiding place. 

He remembered what God had done for him before.

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book,” (verse 8).

God’s watch-care included a book of sorrows. 

David trusted God because God was trustworthy. God knew all about where had been and what he had experienced. He knew the wins and the losses. This gave Dave confidence.

“I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?” (Verse 11).

1. Some experiences are fearful.
2. God is bigger than whatever we fear.
3. God knows all about our sorrows.
4. We overcome fear when we look back with gratitude.
5. We lean forward in confidence because God is more than enough for whatever we face.

I will put my trust in God.

Our Father, I will put my trust in you. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
