    When I am encompass by fear, the Lord is my protector. He will shield and protect me always. I can rest in peace in his name. To God be the glory!

    This whole chapter amazing! Keys to safety and faith in protection are: salvation, strength, whom?, They stumbled, pavilion - resting place, confident, rock, Lord took me up, secret pavilion, hide me, and finally: "wait".

    The commonality to faith in GOD IS TO WAIT THROUGH ALL OF LIFE. Follow the steps of peace road or don't move.

    The Peace is in God's word and Spirit.
