Saturated In God's Word

A Christian who is saturated with the Word is likely to have a calm, wholesome outlook on life; to be kept steady in the path of God's will in neither joy or sorrow, wealth or poverty;  he is likely to be a pleasant companion, not voluble in aimless talk;  and he will not be overly disturbed by world conditions
Elizabeth Elliot's father

She doesn't worry about what is happening in society.  She knows God's Word predicts evil getting worse as the end nears, but she remembers Who is in control and all things work together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.
Romans 8:28

If she loses all her wealth, she knows that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills and promises to provide for her.

If she loses her health, she knows that God loves her, will bring good out of it, and will sustain her on her sickbed.

If evil men advance and cause terror in the land, she knows that sin and evil are always present while we live on this earth but God still reigns.  He will have the final say.

Saturate yourself in God's Word.  Saturate your children in God's Word.  Know the Bible so well that when lies are told, you will not believe them.  Match everything you believe to God's Word.  It is truth.  Believe the many promises He gives to those who love Him.  Rest in Him knowing that He is a good God and is preparing a mansion for us.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed,
and though the mountains be carried in the midst of the sea.
Psalms 46:1,2
