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 difficult situations. Yet rather than focusing on his circumstances and allowing himself to be consumed by his fear, David 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 combat and overcome fear? When you find yourself feeling fearful, do you have a verse or passage that helps you refocus your thoughts on trusting God? Tami
