Wednesday Daily Devotional By Pastor David Okoye (Ambassadors Diet 20th July, 2016) – Don’t Patronize Fear

Share this story:

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and
thy staff they comfort me.” Psalms 23:5 

The Faith level of the
Palmist has never ceased to amaze or inspire me.

He knew what it meant
to be persecuted. He was betrayed by those dearest to him including his
very own son. He had to live in caves at a time and even disguise
himself as a mad man just so he could survive.
But, he still trusted in the Lord.

David lived in the time when the
people of God didn’t have the bible so accessible to them to be
encouraged or the Spirit of God in them to comfort and strengthen them,
and yet, he trusted in the Lord.

In our opening text, we see
something very important in David’s testimony. He said “Yea, though I
walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for
thou art with me…
” The word ‘shadow’ implies a reflected image of
someone or something so, when a shadow is seen, it means that the object
itself is close by. 

So when David used the tenses ‘walk through the
valley of the shadow of death
‘, you can tell he referred to a seemingly
deadly situation. 

David literally said that even if he perceived death
lurking in the corner, he would have no fear because he knew that God
was with him. What an assurance of protection and victory! Note that for
the new creation, we do not just have God with us, but we have God in
us. With God in you there is no place for fear in your life.

I do not patronize fear. The greater one dwells in me, therefore I am safe from all harm. 


2 Timothy 1:7; Colossians 3:3
