Encouragement for the Day

12:38 PM

You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
Psalm 91:5-8

As I was reading in my Bible yesterday, I read these verses and something hit me. In these verses, we are told that we won’t fear the terror of night, the arrows, the pestilence, or the plague. However, it doesn’t say that those things won’t be present in our lives.

Sometimes we are so worried or scared about things that we can’t sleep, yet God is there to help us calm our fear. Sometimes it seems like people are out to get us, yet God is ready to give us the peace that surpasses all understanding. Sometimes we feel like we can’t get over an illness, maybe you even know you’re not going to, that is when the God of all comfort is ready to comfort you.

Remember even if you are in the middle of a hard, scary, or sticky time, God is right there with you
