When I am Afraid I will Trust in You
Don’t panic. I’m with you.
There’s no need to fear for I’m your God.
I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you.
I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.
ISAIAH 41:10 (THE MESSAGE)
Satan is always trying to weaken our faith by fear. He knows that fear is the great enemy of faith and that faith is the great secret of help. If he can get us fearing, he will stop our trusting and hinder the very blessing we need.
When Satan tells you therefore, that some ill is going to come, you may quietly look in his face and tell him he is a liar, that instead of ill, goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of you life. And then turn to your blessed Lord and say, “When I am afraid, I will trust in you.” (Psalm 56:3)
A. B. SIMPSON
Surely goodness and love
will follow all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
PSALM 23:6 (NIV)
