Redemption From Fear

Re:Verse reading—Psalm 27 (day four)

I have a friend who is deployed.  He is in a war zone…one of the hotspots of the world.  He is a warrior like King David.  When he reads Psalm 27:1-3, it is with different eyes than mine.  Can we really have confidence that God is with us…even in the battles of life?  Absolutely! David did not just write Psalms out of the experiences of his life…these words were inspired by the Holy Spirit.  They are the words of God.

So…when God makes a promise, can we trust Him to keep it?  Most assuredly…YES!  God keeps His promises…it is His character and He will never act contrary to His character.  Can we have courage when life gets difficult?  When Scripture says “fear not”, can we really stand firm in our faith?  Yes and Yes.  “He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.” (Psalm 91:4)  He redeems us from fear.

One thought on “Redemption From Fear”

  1. We all can trust God and really have confidence that God is with us and will be always with us, the believers, even in the battles of life. God is faithful to His believers. God has not abandoned us when we asked for His intervention even though he could delay His responses and I am confident that He will not abandon us whenever we need and seek Him.

    Jesus’ death on the cross has redeemed us from sin, from fear or worries. We, believers, are under His care and protection forever!
