I am so glad that we serve a loving God. A God that loves us with a love that never ends. A God that loved us so much that He allowed His son to die on our behalf. Not only die but suffer the terrible death of the cross. Through Christ we run into the arms of our Heavenly Father.
Whether we are surrounded by storms or calamities, He is available to us. We can run into His arms with our concerns, fears and troubles and lay them at His feet. Once we have Christ in our life, we NEVER have to face anything alone again. As we walk in His ways and abide in His word, He will keep us on the right path. He will lead us where we need to go and how we need to get there. If we step outside His path for us, He gently leads us back inline through His word and His Spirit.
There is NOTHING that can separate us from Him. As long as we have breath we can turn to Him. When we die, we needn't fear. He is there to greet us and welcome us home. In other words, we are NEVER alone! My heart hurts for those who have never known His love and compassion firsthand. There is nothing else that comes anywhere close!
Today I am reminded that as we turn to God we receive protection, blessings and His favor in our lives. We don't have to worry about what man says or does when we are walking in obedience to the ONE who loves us. He not only offers us protection but will fight our battles for us. PSALM 37:39-40 NIV says it so beautifully,39 "THE SALVATION OF THE RIGHTEOUS COMES FROM THE LORD; HE IS THEIR STRONGHOLD IN TIME OF TROUBLE.40 THE LORD HELPS THEM AND DELIVERS THEM; HE DELIVERS THEM FROM THE WICKED AND SAVES THEM, BECAUSE THEY TAKE REFUGE IN HIM."
So whatever you are currently facing, run to the ONE who knows you better and loves you more than anyone else possibly could." He is our stronghold in time of trouble! Put your trust in Him and watch as He delivers and saves you. HE truly is our refuge!"
Psalm 37:7 NIV 7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
