He watches over us. I find myself this Thanksgiving extremely thankful for this truth.
There were times this year when the grip of fear almost suffocated me. No matter how much I searched and dug for Truth, it was a battle to believe. To believe He is working all things for good. To believe even if my greatest fear comes true, it will be alright. Yet, I knew He is faithful so I kept seeking. Oh friends, He won’t leave you alone with these questions, fears, and doubts when you continue to seek Him. As we pray, read Truth and worship, the Lord reassures our fragile hearts and minds He is watching over us. He has been from the beginning and He will until He returns again.
“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” Psalms 91:1-2
For those that go to the Lord for safety and trust Him, they will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty. We as believers in Christ are secure and rest in the shadow of God Almighty. There will be struggles. Job, Paul and even Jesus himself suffered. But, we are in the shadow of the Almighty. This truth has been a game changer for me lately. Our ultimate security is found in relationship with the Lord. Nothing can match knowing we are safe in the arms of God. He is good. He is faithful. He is watching over those that love Him.
I am fearing less today. I am braver today. But, only because I believe He is who He says He is.
He is our shelter.
He is our secure.
He is our rest.
He is our refuge.
He is our fortress.
He is our confidence.
He is our protection.
He is our salvation.
For this I am thankful! Our faith in God Almighty will carry us through all the dangers and fears of life.
“The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” Psalms 91:14-16
Jump into His arms! He’s got you!
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10
God, this Thanksgiving I am grateful that you are watching over us. We are safe in Your arms. May we always run to you for safety and trust you.
