Looking at verse 9, what a beautiful promise is given here. If we do not rebel against the Lord but, instead, walk in obedience, we needn’t be afraid of what’s to come. The Lord walks with us. He protects us against evil. My heart aches at some of the things happening in our country right now, actions and choices made by many that do not honor God, as my mom would say, in any way, shape, or form. God will bring judgment on those who refuse to acknowledge Him. They will be “devoured” in His timing. We can pray, we can walk uprightly, we can set the better example. And we can do all that without fear, because we KNOW God is with us and HE holds the victory.
