“Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson has never been afraid to talk about her faith and her relationship with God. The 20-year-old inspirational speaker has proven that many times by sharing uplifting words and Bible verses with her more than three million followers on social media.

Now, she has decided to share her truth once again. This time, through a verse that “has been speaking so loudly” to her ever since she returned home from Somalia late last year.

The Bible verse, which Sadie captioned in an Instagram post, reads: “Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; Ephesians‬ ‭5:19‬.”

“Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord;” ‭‭EPHESIANS‬ ‭5:19‬ ‭ Pricilla Shirer encouraged passion to reread Ephesians and it has been speaking so loudly to every area of my life as a believer. Tonight I was able to share a message to a group of woman of how as daughters we can find our confidence in who our dad is. This verse of speaking Psalms hit me today. I never took this verse as seriously as the power in it. Sometimes we don’t feel like we have the words to say when we are staring at the face of fear, staring at the face of our enemies, staring at the face of our battles the Lord spoke this word in a dream recently and it reminded me of the what i carry and what He equips me with. . . WHEN the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy he better hear you talking to your daddy. You don’t feel like you know the words to say…. SURE YOU DO He has already given them to you. THAT is your weapon. When I was in Mogadishu, Somalia back in October I felt as though I was staring at the face of fear. For someone who has dealt with fear, anxiety, and panic attacks I had to really be on guard to not allow the enemy to use that from stopping what God had purposed for the trip. One of the nights there i woke up and began to feel a panic attack creeping in and the feeling of fear surrounding. I leaned over and grabbed my mom and the first words I gasp out was READ PSALMS 91. My mom began to declare the words of WHO OUR GOD IS and WHAT OUR GOD CAN DO. That He is OUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH. That we WILL NOT FEAR THE TERROR OF THE NIGHT. that we are hiding under the feathers of His mighty wing. That He hears our cry. As we began to say who our father was the fear left the room and a peace invaded. The enemy was on the move to kill, steal, and destroy what God has purposed for that trip, but when He got right up close and the words and power of who our God is came in and canceled the assignment of fear that the enemy tried to throw at me. I am a fearless daughter, because my Father is my refuge. This daughter has found her confidence in her father. #fcaiam2018

If you recall, Sadie and her mother, Korie, traveled to Mogadishu, Somalia, in October 2017 to help deliver food to 50,000 people during a severe drought. They left for home mere hours before a deadly bomb explosion in the country’s capital killed more than 300 people. In her post, Sadie tells how she experienced “fear,” “anxiety” and “panic attacks,” during the mother-daughter’s three-day mission trip.

“I felt as though I was staring at the face of fear. I had to really be on guard to not allow the enemy to use that from stopping what God had purposed for the trip,” she wrote, before explaining how Ephesians 5:19 helped revitalize her confidence in her Lord, which came to her in a dream.

“One of the nights there I woke up and began to feel a panic attack creeping in and the feeling of fear surrounding,” she wrote. “I leaned over and grabbed my mom and the first words I gasp out was, ‘Read Psalms 91.’ My mom began to declare the words of who our God is and what our God can do. That He is our refuge and strength. That we will not fear the terror of the night. That we are hiding under the feathers of His mighty wing. That He hears our cry.

“As we began to say who our father was, the fear left the room and a peace invaded,” she continued. “The enemy was on the move to kill, steal and destroy what God has purposed for that trip, but when he got right up close, the words and power of who our God is came in and canceled the assignment of fear that the enemy tried to throw at me. I am a fearless daughter, because my Father is my refuge. This daughter has found her confidence in her Father.”
