Christian Can Rejoice Even When Facing Bad News

I have been feeling kind of bleak this morning in terms of the election results. My candidate is not doing as well as I thought he would. But I found good news in Psalm 112. For those who fear the Lord they can be happy and look up—even when facing bad news. I will highlight the verses that stood out to me (from the NLT).

v. 1. Happy are those who fear the LORD.

v. 4. When darkness overtakes the godly light will come bursting in.

v. 6. Such people [the righteous] will not be overcome by evil circumstances.

v. 7. They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them.

v. 8. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.

My Conclusion

I don’t have to fear bad news.

I will not be overcome by evil circumstances.

I will face my foes triumphantly.
