I am so thankful that I have had great Sunday School teachers in my lifetime! Some have challenged me to dig deeper and go further. This is one of those lessons that was taught to me in 1984. Finding Christ in each verse of Psalm 119 has been such a blessing, each time I read it!

Make me to go in the path of Jesus, for therein do I delight! Amen and amen!! When you go hiking, you take a path without knowing exactly what is around the bend. It is much that way with being a believer. We walk the righteous pathway but instead of be “anxious” for what lies ahead, we have a Shepherd who leads us and a Holy Spirit who reminds us of Bible verses that will help us along the way. There’s no need to be anxious. Phil. 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

When the riots began, I wasn’t afraid at first. It’s when they came to the City I work in that I became anxious. I allowed this to fester without turning to the Lord. My anxiousness then became fear.

My favorite verses that I turn to when I am afraid is: Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. But there are many more. My anxiousness and fear revealed to me that I was not going back to the Scriptures to heal my fearful heart! Once I did this, the fears subsided! Here are a few more that help:

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Ps. 34:4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Deut. 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

These are just a few verses that remind us not to be afraid because we serve a risen Saviour and He will bring all of this to an end in the not too distant future. Rapture can happen at any moment, Christian. Don’t let it catch you unaware and afraid. Build your faith and build your Bible knowledge. Peace follows when we allow the Holy Spirit to encourage us in times such as these.

This reminded me of the beautiful hymn, In Times Like These. Read through these precious verses and be encouraged:

In times like these, we need a Savior
In times like these, we need an anchor
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

This Rock is Jesus, Yes, He’s the one
This Rock is Jesus, The only One
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

In times like these oh be not idle
In times like these we need the bible
Be very sure, be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

That Rock is Jesus, Yes, He’s the one
That Rock is Jesus, The only One
Be very sure, oh you’ve gotta be sure
That your anchor holds, and it grips the Solid Rock
Your anchor it holds, and it grips the Solid Rock

In times like these, I have a Savior
In times like these, I have an anchor
I’m very sure, I’m very sure
My anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock

That Rock is Jesus, Yes, He’s the one
That Rock is Jesus, The only One
Be very sure, oh you’ve gotta be sure
That your anchor it holds, and it grips the Solid Rock

Grip onto the Solid Rock, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Hang on like your life depends on it because it does.
