Verse of the Week

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3 (ESV)

What does this verse mean to us?

Well, this Bible verse is pretty straight forward. It’s comes from the book of Psalms, in which there are a lot of good prayers. When we say this verse to God, we are telling Him that, instead of being afraid, we will trust in Him to protect us.

The verse after this even says “What can man do to me?”. In other words, if we put our trust and faith in God, we have absolutely nothing to be afraid of. If God is on our side, there is no force in heaven or on earth that can stand against us.

However, it is only natural for us to feel afraid from time to time. There are scary things in this world, and sometimes we are going to be afraid. But as we will see, God tells us in other parts of the Bible that these fears are not of Him, but instead they are placed in our minds by the devil.

When we feel afraid, we must acknowledge that the fears inside of us come from the enemy, and we should pray to God to take the fears away. Once again, if we trust in God, we have nothing to be afraid of.

Let’s start the week off with a prayer.

“Dear God,

Thank you for your Holy Word. Thank you that you have promised to protect us and keep us safe no matter what. Help us to trust in you and to remember that, when you are on our side, no one can stand against us. Amen.”

-J. Edwards Holt
