Fears and Victory

Written by Christianity and the Confusion on December 27th, 2009

   Since the fall of man evil, selfish men have brought misery upon the world. Though the ages they have enslaved many by force or fear. Through fear they can control people and enslave them. Today the story is the same and we often feel hopeless. We pray for, work for and fight for change, only to be faced with more of the same. Maybe things really are changing for the better and we do not see it because of evil men shirring up fear. It really does not matter if these fears are real or imaginary, the affect is the same. I do not wish to address any particular issue which might provoke such fears; instead I want to focus on how we handle these fears. I have put together this video of Psalms 37 which I have found to be a real help. If I were to pick out one passage it would be this, for it speaks of how God always takes care of those who put their full trust in Him.

The steps of a man are established by the LORD,
And He delights in his way.
When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong,
Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.
I have been young and now I am old,
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
Or his descendants begging bread.
All day long he is gracious and lends,
And his descendants are a blessing.
