I will trust and not be afraid.
Have you ever been upgraded from Coach to First Class on a flight? It happened to me once. Corinthian Leather seats, crystal service, linen napkins, spoiled-rotten attention. Nice.
Dwight Moody used to say he was headed to heaven First Class: his ticket was stamped, “I will trust and not be afraid.”
Inundated with news of rampant crime and frozen by fear of life-threatening health issues, can we get our heavenly ticket stamped First Class? Yes! Feed your faith, and your fear will starve.
Feast on these faith-feeding snacks.
“In God I have put my trust; I will not fear” (Ps 27:1).
“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you” (Is 41:10).
Upgrade to First Class.
