cast out fear


Every parent alive knows of the experience of being the security and safety that a scared child needs.

When they are scared, children will usually go to an adult, often a parent, who will hold their hand, offer reassuring words or pick them up and wrap their arms of protection and assurance around their little bodies.

It is so easy to be that stronghold, that place of safety, for a child.

We, as parents, are big, and they are small. We are their protectors, their defenders. The security that we provide casts out the fears of childhood.

It is our job, as parents, to ensure that our children are safe, that they are comforted. But it is also our job to ensure that our children know that we are not their only stronghold, even that we are not their best, or most reliable stronghold.

Even if my father and mother abandoned me,
the Lord would take me in.”

Psalm 27:10

In Psalm 27 David writes of his trust in the Lord. The trust of a child in his father, the trust for a God who has saved him, held him, kept him from danger in the past.
