"Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that fly by day;"
Why does this passage list the terror by night first, followed by the arrows by day? I looked at this and ask God to help me with this passage.
Could it be that the night sets the stage for the day? The thoughts that plague our minds, then worries of the day or playing certain tapes in our minds, over and over again. When the night comes, those thoughts permeate in our spirits and minds, so when we arise, the arrows are results of our thoughts.
Father, let our thoughts be of you when we retire to bed, allowing the Holy Spirit to hover and cover us in His Wonderful Love. Allow us to wake up with the sweet savor of Your peace, and let it follow us and protect us from the arrows of others, as well as from ourselves.
