4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
Psalm 34:4-7 NIV
These are not just sweet words for us to read and pass over. They are promises for us! God does answer and He does deliver on His word.
We might seem to have the weight of the world on our shoulders, but He’s the one in charge of the cosmos. Let Him carry the burden. Rest in His words of truth.
Gracious God, let us trust in Your word in ways we have never trusted before. Help us to set aside the worries and fears that are trying to keep us from Your promises of goodness so we can run this race with endurance!
