Note: I am hoping to pick up The Daily again. It may not be every single day, however, I will definitely contribute more often!
I have been on an emotional roller coaster lately, and a couple weeks ago, God gave me this Scripture. I read it and thought, wow, and then forgot about it. Then, yesterday, I fell apart early on and by the end of the day had been overwhelmed with hurt and felt like throwing in the towel…
But, then… God reminded me that He is HERE!
O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to You for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for You are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in Your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of Your wings! – Psalm 61:1-4
He IS our safe refuge. He DOES hear us. We ARE safe beneath the shelter of His wings.
Yes, I will face trials and troubles in this life, and yes, I may feel overwhelmed at times. However, I know that I know that I KNOW my God loves me and will NEVER leave me or forsake me–no matter how dark and dreary it gets!
Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you. – Deuteronomy 31:6
I hope that this encourages you as much as it did me. Never forget that God loves you and cares for you right in the middle of the lowest of your muck and the high points as well!
Daddy God, forgive me for wallowing in a sea of self pity and forgetting that I am the daughter of the Most High. Forgive me for forgetting that You are with me and that WITH YOU, I CAN face any storm and that You, the Creator of the Universe will be with me every step of the way. I love You, Lord. Thank You for loving me! In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
