Bible reading: I Samuel 17:32-37

While eating lunch, I felt sharp pain in my mouth. X-rays showed a cyst growing underneath a tooth. An oral surgeon said I had to have the cyst, molar, and a wisdom tooth removed. The cyst would then be sent to a lab for a biopsy.

What if I had cancer? My father and grandmother both died of cancer. I could be next. Despite my fear, I decided to not worry. Instead, I chose to focus on God’s promise to never let go of me, no matter the circumstance. Each time fearful thoughts entered my mind, I asked God for peace in my heart. The more I prayed, the less scared I felt.

Today’s reading is an illustration of having confidence in God when facing a frightening situation. David volunteered to fight Goliath. David’s faith came from remembering how God helped him in the past. As a result, David knew God would help him again, and he bravely faced the giant.

What are you afraid of today? Whatever the situation, turn it over to God. Remember God’s command to not be afraid and His promise to be present in the middle of every problem. By doing this, I was able to face having surgery and patiently wait for the test results. Thankfully, I did not have cancer.

“When I am afraid, I will trust in you.” (Psalm 56:3, NIV)

Lord, thank you for giving me the confidence to not be afraid. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
