In Psalm 112:7-8, we receive a picture of an extraordinarily mature person. We read, “He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. His heart is steady; he will not be afraid.” What a peaceful heart! What a way to live! I think about this verse because of what one must believe about God to enjoy this firm, steady heart that fears nothing–even whatever bad news will come. It’s the deepest kind of surrender.
