Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
Through all of the chaos and calamities and disasters and crimes and wars, the prevailing message is: "It's a scary world."
But if we would listen more closely, there is one voice that pierces through the noise, saying, "Fear not."
Fear not, because He is sovereign enough to calm the storms and quell the waves. Fear not, because He is powerful enough to protect and deliver us from evil. Fear not, because He is loving enough to hold our hand and stand beside us through it all.
Fear not, because God is. Sovereign. Powerful. Loving. He is peace.
