I squeeze this verse for comfort.
Fear’s a menace to my mind.
I’m no stranger to its power;
Fierce, it lies me down half-bind.
I’m no stranger to My Savior,
whose right hand upholds me tight.
As I grope for hope, half-doubting,
trusted Love remakes me light.
“Why are you downcast, O my soul? … Put your hope in God” Psalm 42:11
Talked to your soul, lately? David needed to remind himself that his loving, Sovereign God was with him.
God wants you to know He’s with you too:
I’m with you on the operating table.
I’m with you in court.
I’m with you on the freeway.
As you write a book, confront a friend, attend a funeral, joggle jobs, bite your nails, kick your laundry under the bed… “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matt. 28:20
