Facing the Unknown

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1

There are times that fear grips us all. I remember being a young boy and thinking that something lived under my bed at night. It was gone every morning, but I was sure I heard it moving around, licking its lips during the dark hours. It didn’t matter that I was twice the size of most kids my age; the monster under my bed was always bigger. I wasn’t getting out of that bed after the lights went off even if the house was on fire.

Now that I am older, I know that what I was afraid of was the unknown. My mind made whatever noises that were heard a creature of great proportions. I have heard that fatigue makes cowards of us all, but so does fear, and nothing can paralyze us more than the fear of the unknown.

That’s why it is good we serve a God who knows all things. He is omniscient—all knowing. God knows what this year will hold, and that He holds us in His hand should bring peace to believers. A wise man once said, “Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway.” Before you start searching the Bible for this quote, I should probably admit it came from John Wayne. But this point is made all throughout Scripture. Psalm 27 reminds us that God is our light and our salvation. As He lights the path for each of us in 2021, may we boldly step forward despite our fears and refuse to let the booger under the bed keep us from the peace that comes from knowing and trusting Him.

In Him,

Bentley Hill
