(The righteous) will not fear evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Psalm 112:7
News junkies constitute a whole class of people in our media-saturated culture. It seems sometimes 99.9 percent of the news coming at us daily is bad. But God’s promise to His covenant people is that they don’t have to fear evil tidings. That doesn’t mean they are exempt from dread phone calls or other alarming information. However, God’s covenant people don’t have to exist in a perpetual state of anxiety. Down deep inside they trust in God, and know He works all things for good and His glory in their lives.
