Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.

Psalm 23:4

At the time of writing, we are all, globally and nationally, under the shadow of coronavirus, and the prospects look bleak. Yet as Christians our natural fears of this unknown and currently incurable ‘killer virus’, can be tempered with the knowledge that we are not facing it alone! In this, as during those personal ‘low’ times – when the shadow of bereavement, illness, financial difficulty or depression seems to overwhelm us – we can share David’s confident assertion that, I will fear no evil for you are with me. How reassuring to have his rod and staff to comfort us.
