How to Combat Negative Reports
Do you find yourself struggling to combat negative reports? Is fear trying to get a foothold in your life each time you hear what’s happening around the world? If so, here are five scriptures that you can use to combat that fear and stir up your faith. Let these be the beginning of a deeper study into what the Word says about God’s protection:
1.“The Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!” –Psalm 91:2, AMPC
2.“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence.” –2 Samuel 22:2-3
3.“The Lord says, ‘I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.’” –Psalm 91:14-16
4.“For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.” –Psalm 34:7
5."Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." -Isaiah 41:10
Let the Holy Spirit minister peace to you through these scriptures. Remind yourself that you serve a powerful God who loves you. As you meditate on them (and others!), obey God’s Word and the leading of the Holy Spirit, then trust that He will be faithful to protect you and your family.
