“Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.”
Years ago, I was in Africa where we stayed in tents out on the open range. Now, when night falls in Africa, bizarre sounds come out of the jungle. It sounds like something out of a movie, except it’s real.
Darkness can be a frightening thing because we can’t see what’s out there. The psalmist addressed this in verses 5 and 6 of Psalm 91: “Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday” (NLT).
