“If we were never left in the dark, had 24-hr. security, and lived in Fort Knox – Would we be scared? I thought not.” – #ToddCPittman
Yep, I Said It!
…and so did Psalm 27:1 (NLT) – (1) The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?
“Sometimes we’ve got to step up our game in not only believing but speaking boldly about our fearlessness! David was a bold man and knew how to do some back in the day holy boasting when it came to the Lord’s protection. When David asked why should he be afraid and why should he tremble, he wasn’t looking for answers – they were rhetorical questions. He was doing what we need to do. He was expressing his confidence in having no fear! It’s like this – when we walk in the dark without light we fear we might trip and fall. When we are faced with a sudden lack of income and community-wide health disparities we fear the inability to make it day by day and terminal illnesses. And when we feel like our problems are hitting us in every direction we fear vulnerability with no one to turn to. Well here’s the deal, stuff is going to happen! Another storm is going to come! And when it does we can shrink and cower, we can curse folk out, we can send invitations to our pity party, or we can be like David and believe with boldness and without fear that our God will continue to light our path through the storm, fight our battles when we are feeling weak, and remain the impenetrable fortress of protection that always wins in the end!” – #ToddCPittman
