At one time or another, everyone has had some reason to feel afraid: rejection, sickness, war, poverty, loss, death-you name it. There are many circumstances that can trigger this emotion. This little book shows you how to banish fear and enjoy peace by studying Psalm 23, the most well-known Psalm in the Bible. John DeVries picks seven reasons "not to be afraid" from each of the six verses. As you apply these reasons to the fears that particularly trouble you, God can give you a new freedom from fear, and with that freedom, a new peace: "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:7). We must remember what Jesus said in John 14:27: "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled . . . and do not be afraid."
