I fear God, and next to God I chiefly fear him who fears Him not. --Saadia Ben Joseph
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
When I think of fear I think about darkness; the dark turn around a corner, the dark step of the unknown, the dark step of a dreaded trip to the doctor. But David says in Psalm 27, the LORD is his light, his salvation, his strength of his life! With the Lord David says, He fears nothing not even the dark!
Lord, help us today to view life in light of Your Word, to not fear the dark times of life, to gain strength from your Word as we walk in the darkness of this world!
