The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Psalm 34:7
The next time you are tempted to give in to fear, stop and remember this verse! Imagine how differently you’ll feel when you realize that you are not alone and that the God of the universe has placed heavenly protection around you! Take note of the word “encamps.” That means He’s here to stay, 24/7. It’s not a phone call or a visit. He makes His dwelling in and around you! Walking in this one simple belief will go a long way to helping you become the fearless child of God that you were created to be!
For reflection: Do I see God as “out there somewhere” or always with me? How does His nearness impact my feelings of fear?
Lord, I trust your word and I thank you that you are with and around me. When I wake up in the morning, you are there. And when I sleep at night, you are watching over me. Thank you for your presence and the freedom from fear that it brings. There’s always hope because you’re always with me.
