“He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD. His heart is steady; he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his adversaries” (Ps 112:7-8).

This sacred Psalm keeps churning out awesome benefits of righteousness. So far we’ve seen these nine: inner fulfilment, earthly dominion, backdated blessings, postdated blessings, household wealth, timely wisdom, responsible generosity, assured victory and an enduring legacy! Today’s is equally exciting–the blessing of a stable, steady heart. We don’t have to worry about whether inflation will rise, stocks will fall, our party wins, war will break out or that the world will end. Our trust in Yahweh–the omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient One is enough to insure our hearts against any eventuality in the near or distant future, in this or the next life. Whatever the future holds, the Alpha and Omega is there and ready (Rev 1:8). And that’s why no enemy, event or news unsettles our hearts!
