Discarding Fear

Today's reading: Psalm 56:1-13

David spent a lot years on the run from a murderous-minded king Saul. So he was well acquainted with danger and uncertainty and the feelings of fear that accompany these things. Yet rather than focusing on his circumstances and allowing himself to be consumed by his fear, (which would have been easy to do) David turns to, and leans fully on, God, telling God that he trusts Him and His word completely.

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?” (vs. 3-4)

Is it your habit to reach out to, and lean on, God when you feel afraid? How does talking with God and spending time in His Word help you overcome fear? Tami
