God Comforts the Fearful

"What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee." (Psalm 56:3)

Like many people, Maggie was afraid of the dark. She was afraid of the scary things she couldn't see in the dark. Maggie shared a bedroom with her sister Kathi, and she made Kathi promise not to go to sleep until after she had fallen asleep so that Kathi could protect her from all of the "scary things" in the room.

For the times that Maggie's fears were very strong, her mother told her to quote Bible verses and pray. Maggie's mom said that the Lord promised in His Word that He would calm all of Maggie's fears. Psalms 56:3 says, "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee." Maggie's mom explained that God did not want her to be afraid; instead He wanted her to trust Him with all her fears. Maggie followed her mom's advice and began to see how the Lord was more powerful than anything real or imagined. As she quoted verses, she was reminded of God's control over everything. As a result, she started being less and less afraid of the dark.

The Lord promises us in His Word that He will comfort us when we are afraid. Isaiah 41:10 says, "Fear thou not, for I am with thee: be not dismayed for I am thy God." Whether it is something small, like being afraid of the dark, or something large, the Lord asks us to trust Him to comfort us in the midst of our fears.

God's Word is able to comfort His children when they are afraid.

My Response:
» Do I ask for God's comfort when I am afraid? Do I trust Him to be with me even during painful or scary times?
