"So we say with confidence, The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals to do me?" NIV
"So that we can boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me." KJV
We live in such a frightening and unstable world. It seems reasonable that fear is on the rise and running rampant, even for Christians. But, as Christians, we have this sure hope: Our God is forever watching over us, going with us through all things, and taking care of any circumstance that Satan means for our harm. There is no reason for us to fear anyone, be it world leaders, people in authority, or the people next door, because the Lord is our Helper and is on call 24/7 and for eternity.
Heavenly Father, how thankful we are that we serve a God who is constantly watching out for us and helping us get through this life. Help us to exercise our faith to conquer the fears that come on us because of the way the world is. We pray this in the name of our Lord Jesus, Amen.
