The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.
The Bible says that in God there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). That means there is nothing to be feared lurking somewhere in His motives or purposes. His loving nature has our best interest in mind.

Encouragement Changes Everything
Lives are changed-from the simple to the dramatic-through the miracle of encouragement.
Encouragement is an essential nutrient of growing a positive attitude and improving life, and providing that encouragement benefits both the giver and the receiver(s). The world’s foremost leadership expert, John Maxwell, offers practical advice on how to effectively provide the kind of encouragement that transforms individuals, families, churches, and work teams into happier, healthier, more affirming networks. Encouragement Changes Everything focuses on the importance of valuing and growing relationships. This is the perfect gift for people to share and enjoy in either personal or professional contexts.

Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?
