When I hear of things like the Bird Flu and the West Nile Virus I don't get scared. When terrorist attacks (such as 9-11) hit our country, I don't panic while riding on an airplane. Why? Because of chapters in the Bible like Psalm 91. Isn't God in control of our days? Doesn't he have the power to end my life in a heartbeat or sustain my life for the next 50 years? What is there then to fear? So what if I contract the Bird Flu? So what if I am hit by a bus on my way to work tomorrow? Ultimately, God is in control, and he is watching out for the well-being of those who look to him as their refuge and their fortress. Does that mean I will never face difficulty? No way! It just means that I know God is protecting me along the way. And when things get challenging, I can look to him for my strength.
You are here: / / What is there to fear? (Psalm 91)
