This morning, I consider the beautiful promises from Psalm 112. In particular, I love how we read “even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous” and how “surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear. . . ”
The psalm doesn’t say we won’t have darkness, bad news or things that attempt to shake up. Instead, we learn that we have light in the darkness; we have peace during the bad news. We have security and no fear in the midst of trouble.
We will have trouble. We will have bad news. But we have light, security, peace, and steadfast hearts because of God– no matter what happens to us.
