Your Help Comes from the Lord!
Imagine that you decide to take a walk. The sky is blue, the sun is shining, and the birds are singing. All is well! Then, all of a sudden, it starts raining...it just mists at first, but then it starts to pour. And of course, you don’t have an umbrella because there was no rain in the forecast in last night’s news. What would your first reaction be? Probably, you’d run to find shelter as soon as possible to avoid getting totally soaked!
Sometimes, a parallel can be made with our lives. Everything is going well and then suddenly, rain starts falling and the storm begins to rumble. It may be because you lose trust in someone, experience disappointment or disillusionment, or you’re laid off from a job you really need, etc. When storms like these arise, we must take shelter in a safe place.
Today, take refuge in the arms of the Creator of the whole universe. (see the Bible, Psalm 121:2) He created the stars, fashioned the Earth, and set the seas’ limits. Consider this: He formed the mountains, even the highest peaks, the ones that impress us the most!
It’s this very God who is your strength! He is the One Who carries and restores you. Your help is in Him. He is the surest of shelters. He neither slumbers nor sleeps...He is your keeper. (see the Bible, Psalm 121:4-5)
Your hope is in Him. Your strength is in Him.
