Even at Night

in Doubt/Fear Faith/Trust

Hey this is Ron Moore with the Bible Minute.

Do you ever have nights when you can't sleep? I certainly do. You toss and turn, and your mind begins to race. Then fear shows up. In today's passage the writer knows about the fear of night, but he has learned a calming secret. Here it is in Psalm 16:6-8.

"I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken."

When our eyes are on our challenges, self-counsel takes over and this allows fear to walk in unchecked. However, even when we are alone, "even at night," the heart focused on Jesus gives comforting and encouraging instruction.
