The Problem of Fear
Someone has once said that there are 365 “fear not” statements in the Bible … one for every day of the year! That’s good news because you and I have a natural tendency to fear when the circumstances look black and bleak. But the Bible tells every Christian that the Lord is with you in every scary situation in life. David said, Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, because you are with me.” Hey, you really can relax in His strong arms. He will protect you and see you through the worst of trials and problems. Five of the greatest words in the Bible are these: “And it came to pass.” It didn’t come to stay. So be encouraged. You are going to come out of the dark valley of the shadow of death into a brighter day. Jesus will lead you every step of the way. Now that’s real hope.
