“In my distress I prayed to the LORD, and the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?”
Psalms 118:5-6 (NLT)
How many fears do we suffer with today? Having suffered with a variety of phobias, I have had to deal with fear all my life. Today’s passage illustrates a great realization that have made a vast difference in my life. It is this, the fact that the Lord is here. The Psalmist wrote, “In my distress I prayed to the LORD, and the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is for me, so I will have no fear.” The presence of our living, all knowing, all powerful God can bring peace to the most severe situations. He is the God of the now. He is here and He cares. Peter wrote, “Casting all your cares on Him, for He cares for you!” God’s presence brings everything into prospective. His presence switches our thinking from monstrous evildoers to “mere men.” We can say with the Psalmist, “What can mere people do to me?” Today, reframe your fears. Put it in perspective. Look at your fears in the light of His presence and power.
Father, free me from my fears. Help me today to realize that You are here. I cast all my worries on You because You care for me!
