When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me? Psalm 56:3-4
When we are afraid, when we want to talk to someone, or seek council to whom do we turn? Would it be God or a trusted person?
Our answer will reveal to us our relationship with the Lord.
Fear is a powerful feeling and not easy to handle. I experienced a great fear recently when I was asked to do a stress-echo cardiogram. My husband and daughter tried to encourage me and help me through this time, but I knew there was no one who could help me overcome the helplessness and fear I felt. I had only one option open to me and that was to trust the Lord. That day I realise that He is all I need, in that situation and always.He is all we need in any and every situation .
