Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident. NIV
David wrote this Psalm. Earlier in the project, I looked at the first verse of this chapter. But now, as I continue working through the “fear not” listings in my King James concordance, I’ve found myself back in this beautiful passage.
As I think about this verse in the context of the story of Jehoshaphat, it is truly a message of comfort.
I don’t expect that my little suburban existence will entail an army of flesh-and-blood soldiers besieging me, but sometimes it feels as though the worries that I face are like armies at war against me.
At those times, I will focus on the message of this verse, and I will be confident in God.
That’s what I will think about today.
