Psalm 27:1–3 (NLT) — 1 The Lord is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? 2 When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. 3 Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident.

David feared God more than he feared man and that is why his confidence in the Lord remained so stable.

Proverbs 19:23 (NLT) — 23 Fear of the Lord leads to life, bringing security and protection from harm.

What is the point in trembling and being afraid of the future, be it a few minutes or a few years into the future, when God is on your side? Is there really anything to worry about with Father God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit on your side? What is it that the enemy could do  to make them stumble and not be able to rescue you? What is there in life that is too difficult for the Lord to handle?

Franklin Delano Roosevelts popular saying of, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” makes perfect sense when your trust is in the Lord. The Lord says it this way to us > Isaiah 41:13 (NLT) — 13 For I hold you by your right hand— I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.

When I cross a busy street with my granddaughters I hold their hands and never once have they refused to cross because they were afraid. Our lives are like busy streets full of potential danger; however we don’t have to fear because God has our hand and he will navigate us through to the other side. Like David we should be reminding ourselves daily that God is our light, our GPS, and our salvation > getting us safely through to our destination.

Thank you for your prayers. My  trip was wonderfully satisfying and I am back safe and sound as they say.
