I know a lot of us live in a culture of fear and uncertainty. I believe the media plays in part to a level of paranoia some people have. And for those who are getting spiritually attacked, it can make one fearful or discouraged. Here are some scriptures for encouragement – that we ought to not have anxiety. God is our Protector.

With a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless;

But Your eyes are on the haughty, that You may bring them down.
