Psalm 112:7 Are You Afraid of Bad News?

Psalm 112:7 (NKJV)
He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
Psalm 112:7 (ESV) He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.

In life we will all receive bad news, the question is, what do you do with that bad news? Do you let it consume your thoughts? Do you let it dictate your actions? Do you become fearful or even paranoid? I submit to you today, that although bad news may sting, know that when God closes one door, He has another one waiting for you. So, trust God that you will be healed and joyful no matter the outcome. That is why a steadfast heart will not be afraid of bad news because a steadfast heart knows that their God promised good to them. Therefore, trust in the process and know that bad news is ultimately good news. God can turn bad into good. I encourage you to not let bad news negatively take over you. I pray that whatever bad news you have received, you continue to wait patiently and not anxiously or fearfully for the storm to pass over so you can receive your miracle.
