VERSE: Proverbs 3:25-26 – “Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.”
What amazing peace we gain from this verse. Even though life may hit us with surprises, Jesus is never surprised by anything that comes our way. In fact, all things in our life have been sifted through His loving, nail-scarred hands. We are not to fear the obstacles that suddenly fall into our path or the things that trouble the wicked, because the LORD is on our side and we can be confident that He is in control. We can confidently face each trial and overcome each obstacle knowing that Jesus is bigger than our trial and stronger than our obstacles. We can know that God will not allow us to be snared or tricked, but will see us through everything that comes into our lives. Trust Jesus today! Remember, Jesus loves you. You are loved.
Prayer: LORD, you know the things that trouble my heart. You are aware of the things that cause me to worry and be stressed. Write this verse upon my heart. Fill my mind with the truth that You will not allow anything to trap me and that You are always in control! In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
