What is it you are most afraid of? Take that thought, that obstacle, that fear, and compare it to the God of the Bible. When put that ‘thing’ alongside the One who rules all things, how small is that thought or object? Suddenly, what you thought was the worst thing that could ever happen has now turned into an opportunity for you to draw closer to God.
This does not mean that when looking to the God of the Bible all your fears and problems will fly away, though they may, however, what this practice does do is teach our souls to constantly be reminded that there is a Lord above all other lords. Yes, your situation is bleak, but God is greater. Yes, it appears like there is no light at the end of your tunnel but Jesus is the Light of the world. We need to get used to talking to ourselves, even at the expense of people thinking we are odd. Say to your soul, “If God be for me then who can be against me?”
For a time, this one promise embraced by faith will shut the mouths of the world, the flesh, and the devil, but be on guard soldier, because this walk of faith will require you to keep drawing from the Rock of Christ, and as you do so all his promises to each of His pilgrims are Yes, and Amen.
By faith, keep walking and keep looking to Him who is your helper.
