Chapter Summary

How to Deal with Fear

Both Psalms 2 and 4 mention finding peaceful sleep in hard times through God’s grace. This one points out that even when we are trembling from either anger or fear, we need not sin, but can by meditation hide ourselves in God and be safe. Have you ever tried this method for getting to sleep, especially when you are stressed or worried?

Day 130

Gentle Lord, I know You are by my side, waking and sleeping, and I am learning to trust and lean on You no matter how I feel.
