Psalm 56:3-4 (NIV)
When I am afraid, I will trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
Fear comes, what do you do?
Trust in the Lord. Read his word. Give Him praise.
Now what happens?
You affirm, "I will not be afraid" because you have just figured out that compared to fearing God, what can man do to you?
