Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this I will be confident.
Each new day brings with it the threat of war somewhere in the world. Many countries have seldom known peace. Even in America, there are people who live in fear for the future as we escalate the creation of new nuclear instruments of destruction. If this world is our only source of faith, then we are in serious trouble.
Thankfully, our destiny is not tied to this world, but to the eternal domain of our God. We need fear nothing, since we have the assurance of an eternal home of peace and sanity. There is great comfort in knowing that the Lord is still in control. This world may come to an untimely end, but the heavens shall endure forever. Praise God!
Maker of all good things, be the source of sanity in a world gone mad. In the face of nuclear terror, be our support and strength. Keep us safely in Your care, both this day a nd evermore. Amen.
