thought for the day

Psalm 112:6-8

Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
    they will be remembered forever.
They will have no fear of bad news;
    their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
    in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.

Verse 7 struck me this morning, ‘they will have no fear of bad news’. It does not say that God’s people will not have bad news, but that it will not fear them. There will be hard times, times or trouble, of pain but those rooted in God will not be overtaken or consummed by it. God’s people have an achor on which to hold while the storm rages.
