Isaiah 26:3-4 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
When do you feel scared? When are worries most likely to get to you? When is it that you become the most afraid? I am sure several of you had numerous answers. On the other hand, I would also imagine most of them fall into an area of either insecurity or unbelief.
Most people do not experience fear standing on the sidewalk of their local town. However, if you lived in Los Angeles, California and an earthquake began to shake the ground you were standing on you might be a little worried. Or if it was at night and you found yourself in a less than desirable or unfamiliar part of town you might find that you are a bit frightened. What changed? Was it the sidewalk? No. It was the situations you found yourself in. Situations or conditions which were out of your control.
One of the nice things about trusting in God is that you can know without a shadow of doubt nothing is out of His control. He never takes a break from watching over you. If you truly trust Him, He will be with you through all your fears. In fact, if we truly trust in Him, He will take away many of them.
In Proverbs 3:5-6 it says: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
