Whenever I face adversity, whether it is physical, emotional, financial or spiritual, the one thing that enables me to overcome the fearful thoughts associated with it is the awareness of the Lord’s presence. His faithfulness in every situation makes the difference between anxiety and courage. No matter what the outcome might be, I know that He will always surround me with His love and grace. Nothing can cause me to lose my confidence in Him in the midst of troubling circumstances except my doubts and disbelief. He has always been there for me and knowing that He will never leave me nor forsake me is all I need to face any difficulty.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
“What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”
