"The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be
When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;
though war breaks out against me, even then will I be confident.
One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His
The Lord is our light and our salvation. Although we are besieged by the enemy, the Lord will not leave us alone to fight our own battles. He is our shield and armor, a very strong help in times of needs. He is the light at the very end of the tunnel. He is the spring after the wintry weather of our soul. He gives us hope when everything else in us is drained. And He gives us His Spirit so that we can continue the fight until the final battle is won and we will meet Him face to face in His kingdom.There we will dwell with Him in eternal bliss.

"But the eyes of the Lord are on those
who fear Him,
On those whose hope is in His unfailing
To deliver them from death and keep
them alive in famine.
We wait in hope for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
In Him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in His Holy Name.
May your unfailing love rest
upon us, O Lord, even as we put
our hope in You."
Psalm 33: 18- 22
In these times of economic uncertainties of depression and recession where the high and the mighty have collapsed; when even the very rich and powerful nations of the world crumbled to their knees, the children of God are shielded from all these misfortunes. We only have to cling to God's faithful promises and He will give us His divine providence in due time. We will be sustained by the love, goodness and mercy of our Lord. We just have to trust Him that He will always provide for all our needs in their appointed time. God is faithful and true and is never remiss in His promises. So instead of resorting to panic, fear and anxiety for the unknown, let us trust in the unfailing love of God to deliver us from all the misfortunes that is the lot of worldly men.

"This is what the Lord says: 'Cursed is the one
who trusts in man, who depends in flesh for
his strength and whose heart turns away from
He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he
will not see prosperity when it comes.
He will dwell in the parched places of the
desert, in a salt land where no one lives.
But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in Him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes, its leaves
are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit."
Jeremiah 17: 5- 8
Cursed is he who trust in the strength of men. He is doomed to failure in whatever he does. He will start a task and will not see it finished. But the man who trusts in the Lord is blessed by God. The Lord will bless all that his hands will do. Prosperity, peace and joy shall never be far from the man whose trust is in the Lord. The Lord is his strength and shelter in times of troubles.
