Psalm 62:5-7 NLT “Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.”
Have you ever tried to touch something that was just out of reach? When I read this, I pictured the enemy trying to get to me but I was just out of reach. I turn and look at Father, he smiles and I hear him say, “Told you I wouldn’t let him touch you! The only way that he can get to you is if you move away from my side.”
Another Psalm comes to mind, the 91st; If I live in the secret place, I’ll remain stable and secure under the shadow of the Almighty, where no enemy can stand.
Right in the middle of uncertainty-He’s my stability. In the middle of turmoil-my peace. In sickness-healer. In weakness-strength. In trouble-help. Darkness-light! Can I get a witness?
So many of you are facing things you just don’t know how to handle but God would say to you, “Look up! Your deliverer has come. He was not just a baby in a manger, He’s alive today and lives to make intercession for you. He petitions me daily on your behalf, what is there to fear? Have I not said to come to me when you’re weary and heavy and I will give you rest? Not the kind you know, but MY rest! When your eyes are on me, the things of this earth grow dim because the light of my presence is enough to show you the way through. I am your Deliverer. Your strong tower. Your help. Come. I will show you the way.”
What sweet assurance that even if things look bad, You always have me in the palm of Your hand if I only trust in You. Father, everyday, may I remember Your words. You are faithful to keep me out of the enemies hands. I rest by the still water because You restore my soul. In Jesus’ name. Amen
