The psalmist says of God’s people, ‘They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.’ (Psalm 112:7-8 http://bit.ly/2ELNDkb) It’s good to note: we’re not promised that there will be no bad news, or that we won’t have enemies. As the game of life plays out, you can expect both bad news and enemies.
The comforting truth is that we needn’t fear these things, because we’re already on the winning team. The match might be long. We might be unfairly benched or red-carded or punched in the scrum – but we already know Who has won – and we’re with Him.
