Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes
the wicked, for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your
foot from being snared.
-- Proverbs 3:25-26
What guards your heart from fear? Only one protector is sure and
faithful; his name is the Yahweh -- he alone is the LORD. He is our
confidence and protector. As Paul said so powerfully long ago,
prayer and the Holy Spirit are our assurance of God's deliverance.
Either we will be delivered from death to serve God powerfully or
we will be delivered through death to share with him in eternity.
We will not be snared when our fate and future remain in God's
Almighty Deliverer, please give me courage to live for you with
passion, no matter the cost. I trust in you to deliver me. In
Jesus' name I confidently pray. Amen.
