In God We Trust. What Can People Do to Us?

This is the bible verse that came out of the Holy Bible daily devotion for today. Hope it can be a blessing to you :)

Let's not fear anything or anyone other than the Lord, our God our Creator. You may have:
1. Enemy outside, in the sense of people who scheme and plot against you, badmouth or continuously put great effort to bring discredit to you)

Or

2. Enemy inside. The greatest enemy of ourselves in a lifetime. There can be voices roaming inside that say you aren't worthy to be loved, you aren't deserving to be successful, or that you are stupid and can't be respected, etc. Put it simply: All trash talk. 

Yes, your mind can trash talk to you, just like mine can, and the whole universe of mind can. Know the truth: God's words bring peace, joy, and a sense of warmth. If God's words rebuke you, you'll feel stabbed/ashamed for a while because God's words bring light to reveal your error, which brings a following repentance/apology to God. But you will never lose that peace. 

Fight the lies with the truth, which is God's words. Do not be deceived by 'enemies'. May the verse bring peace and encouragement to your current fear :)


When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? (Psalm 56:3-4 NIV)

我惧怕的时候要倚靠你。 我倚靠上帝,我要赞美他的话; 我倚靠上帝,必不惧怕。 血气之辈能把我怎么样呢? (诗篇 56:3-4 CUNPSS-上帝)

惧怕 fear
倚靠 lean on
赞美 praise
血气 mortal
辈儿 a lifetime
