Matthew 10:28 comes to mind when we look at verse 11; and verse 13 also shows salvation of the soul spiritually overrides any fears of man in this world.
Verse 8 needs some explanation. The book here seems to reference something more specific than that of the Book of Life. It may be the same thing or something similar to the Book of Remembrance in Malachi 3:6-18. God surely knows all things and in fact every word we speak we are held accountable for in Judgment Day. ( Matthew 12:36). We are reminded here and with apparently another 99 verses in the Word about sorrow in the lives of believers (see Isaiah 53:3 for the life of Christ as it truly was rather than some sentimental story).
Finally, it should be noticed from verses 3 and 11 that TRUST is an important aspect to true belief in Christ. It is more than mental assent or knowing about Christ. It is trusting our lives to Him; our possessions; our relationships; our vocations; our ALL. It is helpful through this not to place trust ultimately in anything or anyone else; especially ourselves. As Psalm 23 states even through the shadow of death He shall guide us. His Word is true ( 2 Cor 1:18-20; Rev. 3:14). Let us put our trust in Him today and always.
Jesus is the Perfect One to accomplish all that was needed for our salvation. Perfect humanity to fulfill the Law, to shed His blood for our atonement, to die in our place; perfect divinity to bear all of our sins and absorb all of the wrath of God for our sinfulness, to defeat the devil and death, to raise himself up on the third day, and to receive back the glory He had before the incarnation in union with the Father and the Holy Spirit. I don't think we can every fully comprehend the amazing mystery of the incarnation of God in Jesus. But we can know that being human, He connects with us. And being God He connects us to the Godhead. So, we are very loved and privileged to have been drawn to Him by the Father, united to Him by the Spirit, and thoroughly redeemed to God by Him.
May our country's leadership call on the Lord for wisdom and courage to turn to your Word. May we pray with boldness and fervor that will glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Chronicles 7:14, 15

After the Lord has taken you through thick and thin you can only be confident that He will be with you in any harassment of the enemy as you continue to depend on Him and abiding in His truth. He will surely deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living. Thank you Lord Jesus.
