Psalm 23:4 ” Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

What has a greater hold on your life and takes up a bigger space in your heart, fear or faith?  When you find yourself in a deep, dark place, do you seek solace and consolation in the Lord…or do you allow fear and doubt to reign instead?  By placing our trust in God and facing down our fears, He will lead us safety through the valley,  no matter how dark or threatening it may appear. Our Christian walk is a long series of trust-building exercises that strengthen our faith, and reinforce our confidence in God.  So that when we find ourselves in that valley and hear God say, “Fear not!”  … we’ll remember what He’s done, and place our trust in Him because of it . Our faith is built up one dilemma at a time…one dark valley at a time.  And each time we choose faith over fear…fear loses some of its grip on us.
