More Accurate, But Still Comforting



Musings of a Minister's Wife actually counted and posted the entire list, with links.

It's more like 80.

But that's still a lot.

So cut the fear, already.

  1. I love that.

    This is one of my all time favorite stories, from 2 Kings 6:
    15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?

    16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

    17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

    The Lord was protecting his people...in fact "they that be with us are MORE than they that be with them". Our own blindness keeps us from seeing our allies sometimes.

  2. Now I'm feeling outmatched, because I've got nothing profound to reply with...

  3. Well then here's another. :)

    I love this too:

    Doctrine and Covenants Section 6
    34 Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail.
    36 Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.

    Every single thought :)

  4. By the way, I believe in God sends angels to help his children.

    Both the heavenly and the mortal kind. :)

  7. The importance of something in the Bible is not related to the number of times it is mentioned. It is considered most important if it is followed by the words, "God said to do this or He will kill you".

    BTW, that is also how we can tell what is really important in real life. 20 pages of warning instructions that come with a chain saw. None needed for an electrical outlet.
