Psalm 68:18-20, 28, 35 (NASB)
19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden,
The God who is our salvation. Selah.
20 God is to us a God of deliverances;
And to God the Lord belong escapes from death.
28 Your God has commanded your strength;
Show Yourself strong, O God, who have acted on our behalf.
35 O God, You are awesome from Your sanctuary.
The God of Israel Himself gives strength and power to the people.
Blessed be God!
I continually find that life is much bigger than I am. I can find myself overwhelmed by the concerns and demands that can come. It is to easy to linger in the context of fear, doubt and weariness.
I always am reminded and find comfort in the Truth (His Word)that God, my Heavenly Father is with me, for me, and most importantly in me, to work around me, always being my best Solution for every deficiency I have; every need I have.
There is much comfort in knowing HE is always there and I can never ask for too much or too often.
Psalm 71:3 Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come;
You have given commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.
Insert your needs and concerns into these unfailing Words from God, and find the supply, wisdom, help and peace He always gives.
“The God of all comfort” is near,
The LORD, My Keeper Part II…
So, what does HE know that uniquely qualifies Him to be my keeper?
“My wrongs are not hidden from You.” Psalm 69:5,6
“All My desire is before You.” Psalm 38:9
“All my adversaries are before You” Psalm 69:19b
“My times are in Your hands” Psalm 31:15
“You know the path I walk.” Psalm 142:3
And, as Psalm 139 declares, He knows when I sit, stand, when I lie down, every thought, even before a word is on my tongue. Wow, wouldn’t our intelligence agencies love to have that kind of “technology”. If they could, terrorism and many other dark things emanating from the hearts of humanity could be averted.
But, being rightly related to Holy God makes this kind of personal oversight and security available to us in this life… the kind of help to “Keep Us”, even from the sinister strategies and “covert” plots of our enemy, the devil, who is the father of terror, the author of fear. The LORD has even dispatched HIS “helpers”, Special Ops, to a staging area near us, our own personal, spiritual CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit), if you will.
Psalm 34:7 (NASB)
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.
Don’t miss the privilege / opportunity of such loving, divine, sovereign care…belonging to all who are HIS via the Saving Life of Jesus Christ. In Him…
