3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me? Psalm 56:3-4
The Lord is our light and our salvation. He is our rock and our fortress. He is our sword and our shield. We have nothing to fear. Often times in life as we walk with Christ we can face circumstances and situations which will test us and stretch us. If we simply focus on the situation without seeing it through the eyes of the Lord, we can become filled with fear.
But when we view all things from God’s perspective we see He is simply in control. He can work in any situation and circumstance and use it for our good and our glory. He chose us before the foundation of the world and He has designed and ordered our every step. Nothing is a surprise to Him and nothing with Him happens by accident or chance. Everything is on purpose for an eternal purpose. He has simply put us on this earth to bring glory and honor to His name. May we fix our eyes upon the Lord Jesus Christ and prepare our hearts for His soon coming.
