“He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is assured; he will not fear. In the end he will look

Psalm 112:7-8

“He will not fear bad news.” As soon as I heard the news I (1) did not stop and pray to the Lord who tells us not to worry about anything, but to pray (Philippians 4:6) hence my heart was not assured and therefore (2) I indeed feared the bad news. Later, as I repented for my lack of trust my heart reminded me that He was holding our son in His hands as He holds all circumstances.

  1. There is a song by Hillsong United “Desert Song”
    The chorus is: “All of my life, in every season, YOU are still GOD – I have a reason to sing! I have a reason to worship!”
    Today’s post put those words right on my lips and in my heart! I am so thankful to know that He holds all things together in His very capable hands. Thank you Amanda for sharing your story!
    I have been struggling to get Psalm 112 memorized – I am going to keep at it!
    Prayers for a blessed beginning to this new year!
