God keeps a father secure when worry and doubt threaten his well-being
Worry, fear, and doubt are Satan’s favorite seeds to sow. In fact, they are the most effective tools he uses to create weakness in your faith walk because they paralyze you in your working for God’s kingdom. When you are faced with worry and doubt about your circumstances, take them to the Lord; He has promised never to leave you nor forsake you, and He will give you the confidence to handle whatever Satan puts in front of you. The Lord is your protector, and in Him you have everything you need to live securely and confidently. Remember, God will keep you in perfect peace when your mind is stayed on Him (Isaiah 26:3).
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
