Victory as we overcome fear

Recently I read in the book of Psalms: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea” (46:1, 2).

The Psalmist’s calm assurance of protection was comforting as I prayed about how to overcome fears about personal concerns and also issues in my community and the world. The idea of God as a refuge—a place of safety and a source of strength as we work toward resolving things in our lives—makes a huge difference. Instead of feeling as though human effort is our only resource, we have divine intelligence, strength, purity, and goodness on our side.
