Whom Shall I Fear?
Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes turning our worries and fears over to God. Wondering, worrying and becoming fearful of what the future holds or what others think of us as we confront our chronic illness is a place we just can’t live!
We must remember the Scriptures and remind our hearts the Lord God alone is our light and our salvation!
Psalm 27: 1-3 (KJV) “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.”
What the Verse Means
With God on our side as Believers in Jesus Christ, we can defeat fear and have confidence.
