Such People

Psalm 112:6-8

“Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered. They do not fear bad news, they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.”

I finished the my study through the book Steadfast Love, by Lauren Chandler, and this is one of this verses she uses in the last chapter. I think I’ve read this verse before but it hit me in a new way. I want to be such a person, someone who isn’t overcome by evil, who doesn’t fear bad news, who confidently trusts the Lord to care for me, and fearlessly face my foes with confidence. I want to be the one who stands firm when the world around her shakes. The human part will always be frightened but the Holy Spirit inside me will conquer that human fear. This is who I want to be, and this person, “will be long remembered”.

I have this picture of Wonder Woman in my head when I read this verse. Standing strong, able to take on whatever comes my way. All because I have the only God as my armor and strength. Through Him I can do all things. I can be ‘such people‘.
