Smith: what if

Sunday, June 21, 2015
Even though I walk
    through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
    —Psalm 23:4 (NIV)
    Our lives are full of supposes. Suppose this should happen, or suppose that should happen; what could we do; how could we bear it? But, if we are living in the “high tower” of the dwelling place of God, all these supposes will drop out of our lives. We shall be “quiet from the fear of evil,” for no threatenings of evil can penetrate into the “high tower” of God. Even when walking through the valley of the shadow of death, the psalmist could say, “I will fear no evil”; and, if we are dwelling in God, we can say so too.
    ... Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911), God of All Comfort, ch. 8 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 23:4-6; Matt. 6:27; Luke 12:25-26; Phil. 4:6-7; 1 Pet. 5:6-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, take away all anxiety.
