I used to watch TV shows growing up, such as “She-ra” and look at those characters in awe of how brave and fearless they were. Fast forward a few decades and now my Heroines are more like Esther or Deborah, (to name a few) from the Bible.
We all have a desire to be fearless and yet when I look at others I admire; those people seem to overcome fear and be courageous in the situations they face. At the time, I imagine Esther or maybe even Deborah having a few thoughts, just before life changing events occurred of “what if” but hindsight is a great thing; especially since I can read what the Bible says, regarding these people and how God used them to change Nations.
This Psalm is beautiful because it shows that fearing God more, than fearing anything in this life, brings a peace. To trust God completely to take care of us, in all situations, shows that we can conquer our fears – even of death.
God is the Lord Almighty and I respect and love Him as my Heavenly Father but as an all-knowing; all-powerful God – I know that it is on the basis of my faith, that I can rest secure in Him. Knowing that His promises never to fail me and as long as I continue to trust in Him – I will be the heroine in my World.
