We Don’t Have to be Afraid

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.” Psalm 46:1-3 King James Version

Yesterday, the maintenance people came to fix something in my home. My six weeks old puppy, Prince, looked up at me with trust in his eyes as if he was asking me to protect him from these people. O that you and I would look up at our Heavenly Father with trust in our eyes just as my puppy looked up at me knowing that our Heavenly Father will protect us.

Our Scripture verses tell us that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” When we call to Him for help, He is there. We don’t have to be afraid of anything because He will protect us. He answers us immediately and goes to work in our behalf.

The question every Christian should ask himself or herself is “Am I willing to do what God asks me to do immediately or do I put it off until it is convenient for me?” How we must hurt Him and break His heart when we don’t do what He asks us to do. He does so much for us and He asks so little of us. Do you respond immediately when God asks you do something or do you put it off until it is convenient for you?

Heavenly Father, thank You so much for protecting us from the attacks of satan and the world. Thank You for being faithful to us. May we be found faithful to You. I love You, Heavenly Father, and I appreciate all that You have done for me and all that You do for me every day of my life. Amen.
