No Need To Fear

by Anita Mondragon

I have been in self quarantine for a week or more and watching a lot of TV. The other day I was watching Lord of the Rings-Two Towers. When the evil armies were attacking Helms Deep, it looked as though evil was going to triumph over good,but then, out of no where, Gandalf and his armies come to the rescue and vanquished the evil foe! That’s when I remembered the following verses… It renewed my thinking to recall that the Lord is at my side…always! There is no need to fear!

Watching the news these last few days, I have found myself quoting the following chapter in Psalm aloud. Remember these words…fear not. Be at peace. “It will NOT come near you!”-Anita

The Message (MSG)


91 1-13 You who sit down in the High God’s presence,
spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow,
Say this: “God, you’re my refuge.
I trust in you and I’m safe!”
That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps,
shields you from deadly hazards.
His huge outstretched arms protect you—
under them you’re perfectly safe;
his arms fend off all harm.
Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night,
not flying arrows in the day,
Not disease that prowls through the darkness,
not disaster that erupts at high noon.
Even though others succumb all around,
drop like flies right and left,
no harm will even graze you.
You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance,
watch the wicked turn into corpses.
Yes, because God’s your refuge,
the High God your very own home,
Evil can’t get close to you,
harm can’t get through the door.
He ordered his angels
to guard you wherever you go.
If you stumble, they’ll catch you;
their job is to keep you from falling.
You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes,
and kick young lions and serpents from the path.

14-16 “If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God,
“I’ll get you out of any trouble.
I’ll give you the best of care
if you’ll only get to know and trust me.
Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times;
I’ll rescue you…
