Psalm 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
There is no doubt that there will be times when we are afraid. Getting scared is a given. It will happen. What we do when we are so scared is what matters. We need to make a decision. We will trust in the Lord. The minute the fear hits us; seizes us, we make a decision. We do not know what to do. We are afraid. We tell the Lord that but then we trust the Lord. We decide that we are unable to deal with this fear, but we will trust Him.
He has promised to keep us in perfect peace if we keep our hearts and minds centered on Him. We are told to take all of our anxiousness and lay it at His feet. We ask Him to meet the need. We thank Him for meeting the need. Then we leave with peace.
So we will be afraid but we decide that when we are worried, we will take it to the Lord. We will trust Him. We will believe that He loves us and will take care of us.
So fears will come, and you decide now that you will trust. Trust the Lord. Think on Him. Think about who He is and what He can do. Then rest that He loves you and will take care of you!
