"I sought the LORD, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears."
Our 2-year old was up for awhile last night, scared of the dark, his room, whatever.
Sara is a wonder-worker for getting our kids through this: "you just have to get them to think about something else." But it takes time, lots of hugs, and just the right words/stories.
Who can deliver us from fear besides God?
Fear is a part of our psychology that depends upon God for stability, just as our physical bodies (heartbeat, liver, etc.) depend upon Him.
God is the great sustainer of every part of our being. Praise Him for His mercy.
