Sometimes our fears can bring us down to the low of lows. When fear has gripped our lives we are often rendered helpless. Fear can and often does paralyze us in daily living. Most of us in our lifetimes will experience this kind of fear. The writer of Proverbs reassures each of us today. All we have to do is to trust in the Lord and we will be safe. The next time you feel fear creeping into your life, stop, pray, and trust God to watch over you and keep you safe. What a great promise from His Word!



1. When was the last time you were afraid?

2. Describe how that made you feel.

3. Why is this verse so reassuring for you?



God will always be there for us when we put our trust in Him.

Hey David, Great reminder. I tell athletes that they will not make the ESPN top 10 if they are fearful of making a mistake. Fear prevents us from going for it. However, the one thing we can control every time we step out on the field is our effort. Instead of focusing on the mistake that may occur, we should put all of our efforts into giving 100%. I imagine that I am not alone in saying that all to often, I allow life to take my eyes off of the prize. Christ is worthy, so le'ts all strive to use our God given talents and abilityes to give him our best. And remember, when we do fail our Lord and Saviour is there to pick us up and put us back into the game.

Team Christ, Matt Barkley
