I sought the Lord, and he
answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
Fear sneaks into my heart
without permission. It paints a picture of
helplessness and hopelessness. It steals my peace
and my concentration. What am I fearful about? I’m
concerned about the safety of my family or the
health of loved ones. I panic at the loss of a job
or a broken relationship. Fear turns my focus inward
and reveals a heart that sometimes finds it hard to
When these fears and worries strike,
how good it is to read David’s prayer in Psalm 34:
“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered
me from all my fears” (v. 4). And how does God
deliver us from our fears? When we “look to him” (v.
5), when we focus on Him, our fears fade; we trust
Him to be in control. Then David mentions a
different type of fear—not a fear that paralyzes,
but a deep respect and awe of the One who surrounds
us and delivers us (v. 7). We can take refuge in Him
because He is good (v. 8).
This awe of His
goodness helps put our fears into perspective. When
we remember who God is and how much He loves us, we
can relax into His peace. “Those who fear him lack
nothing” (v. 9), concludes David. How wonderful to
discover that in the fear of the Lord we can be
delivered from our fears.
Lord, I’m aware
of my worries and fears, and I place them in Your
hands. Give me peace as I face the day.
Ask God to free you from your fears.
INSIGHT: In the Old
Testament, references to the nature of life after
death are obscure. Therefore, the Israelites often
struggled to reconcile the injustices of life, since
they believed what happened beyond the grave was
uncertain. Another belief that influenced Jewish
thinking about the afterlife was the principle of
retribution that taught God blessed the righteous
and judged the wicked—but only in this life. Three
psalms focus on this concept. Psalm 34 explains the
basic principle. Psalm 37 offers counsel to one who
suffers without understanding. And in Psalm 73, the
psalmist himself wrestles with the problem of
injustice but sees an eternal solution.

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
