Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Acts 12: 1-11, 2Timothy 4:6-8 & Psalm 34
God delivered St. Peter and St. Paul from all their fears, giving them courage to face many trials and traumas, and to joyfully keep proclaiming the good news, healing the sick, casting out darkness. As St. Paul said as he waited in prison for his inevitable execution, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race and I have kept the faith.” Am I prepared to have God similarly deliver me from all my fears? Lord God, deliver me from all my worries, anxieties and fears.
I sought the Lord and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. (Psalm 34: 4)
