No Fear of Bad News…

This verse from Psalm 112 verse 7, “He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.” is one more reminder to me that God’s grace reaches far to embrace me. This is especially relevant today because I have lived it in dread of bad news.

Yes, of course, I have reminded myself that what concerns me is in God’s hands. All He does or doesn’t do is driven by love. I even leaned into the old hymn that insists on the Holiness of God even though the eye of sinful man His Glory may not see.

As I prepare to sleep tonight, I am going to wrestle with this verse by reading the phrases in reverse order.

I am trusting in the Lord; therefore,

My heart is steadfast,

And I have no fear of bad news.

 

How do you cope with the fear of bad news?

    It seems to me more and more as time passes that when we refer to ‘BAD NEWS’ that we’re eating from that tree again. The one about the knowledge of good and evil. I think that having spent the better part of a fairly long life in the Lord, and having the experience of seeing how he manipulates “bad news” for GOOD in His Kingdom, those thoughts fade a bit. I love the way He does that….

    Jody, I have a sign in my office that says
    A friend is someone who hears your song and when you you forget it sings it back to you.
    Thank you for being that friend. Roselyn
