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?
