Do not be afraid… do not be afraid… for I am with you.

Did a problem keep you awake last night? I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill. I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me (Psalm 3:4-5).
Is a fear nagging at your mind? Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God (I will praise His word), in God I have put my trust; I will not fear (Psalm 56:3-4).
Are you battling weakness in spirit? You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:1).
What a blessed thought! We can trust God and cast all our cares on to Him! We can pray at night, for He hears us in the darkness. We can trust Him when fearful, for He resides above all circumstances. And when we’re weak, He provides daily strength for our daily needs. Today, rely on Him—and relax in Him.
Blessed are those who realize the uncertainties of this life are a reminder to prepare for the certainties to come.
