Today, I had to write Psalm 56:3 on little index cards six times. And this was the second week in a row I’ve had to do that. Do you think God might be saying something to me?
Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.
That is the verse our kids at Highpoint are learning this month, and they needed the index cards for an activity this week and last week. Although, I’m starting to think I was the one who needed the index cards more. Fear is my biggest struggle. The enemy knows that, and he is constantly trying to sabotage my God-given joy with it. I’ve tried all sorts of things to cure it. (In case you were wondering, Google doesn’t work. More research doesn’t work. Telling yourself to forget about it doesn’t work.) The only thing I’ve found that conquers fear is Scripture, and that’s exactly why I think I had to write Psalm 56:3 not once, but twelve times in the past week. When I am afraid, I will trust in you.
And why do I trust in Him? But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. Acts 2:24
I read this verse last night and I wanted to shout and scream and yell it at the top of my lungs. IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR DEATH TO KEEP ITS HOLD ON HIM!!! So, take that, enemy! You lose. You will always lose and my Savior will ALWAYS win!!! Maybe I’m the only person who fights fear daily, but if anyone else is out there I hope this verse helps you fight the battle today. If you get a chance, listen to Todd Agnew’s “Glorious Day.” That song is one of my favorites, and I think it speaks to the victory we can claim in Jesus Christ.
