When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet. Do not be afraid of sudden terror, Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; For the Lord will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught.
- Proverbs 3:24-26
Let this scripture wash over you today and encourage you.
If we allow it, it can be easy to get caught up on the sudden terrors that strike the world day by day. The enemy is working an agenda to instill fear into as many hearts as possible.
However, as God’s children and vessels of His Spirit, we don’t need to be afraid. God is not nervous… Instead, we can fight the enemy's agenda of fear by having confidence in God and the promises He’s made us!
Jesus has also given us His supernatural peace that transcends human understanding. We don’t have the spirit of fear, but we have the mind of Christ! This supernatural peace is what enables us to have peace through things that people who don’t know Christ would not. No matter what may be happening around the world, God has never left you. He is here to stay!
Today, reflect on the amazing truth of this scripture. When fear tries to flood into your mind and drown out the voice of truth, immediately remind yourself of God’s promises and what He has spoken over you!
He is your shepherd, your defender, your protector, your strength, your joy and your peace. When you lie down to sleep tonight, He will be there to watch over you.
Let the Lord be your confidence today, and He will keep your foot from being caught.
Prayer: Lord, help me to never give in to fear that tries to flood its way in. I choose to cast down thoughts and refocus my mind on you. I know there is no reason to be afraid, for you are with me! I thank you that I will sleep peacefully tonight as I put my confidence in you.
