He is our refuge

I am so glad that we serve a loving God. A God that loves us with a love that never ends. A God that loved us so much that He allowed His son to die on our behalf. Not only die but suffer the terrible death of the cross. Through Christ we run into the arms of our Heavenly Father.

Whether we are surrounded by storms or calamities, He is available to us. We can run into His arms with our concerns, fears and troubles and lay them at His feet. Once we have Christ in our life, we NEVER have to face anything alone again. As we walk in His ways and abide in His word, He will keep us on the right path. He will lead us where we need to go and how we need to get there. If we step outside His path for us, He gently leads us back inline through His word and His Spirit.

There is NOTHING that can separate us from Him. As long as we have breath we can turn to Him. When we die, we needn’t fear. He is there to greet us and welcome us home. In other words, we are NEVER alone! My heart hurts for those  who have never known His love and compassion firsthand.  There is nothing else that comes anywhere close!

Today I am reminded that as we turn to God we receive protection, blessings and His favor in our lives. We don’t have to worry about what man says or does when we are walking in obedience to the ONE who loves us. He not only offers us protection but will fight our battles for us.  Psalm 37:39-40 NIV  says it so beautifully,39 “The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; He is their stronghold in time of trouble.40 The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.”

So whatever you are currently facing, run to the ONE who knows you better and loves you more than anyone else possibly could. He is our stronghold in time of trouble! Put your trust in Him and watch as He delivers and saves you. HE truly is our refuge!

Psalm 37:7 NIV 7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Those who hope will soar!

We believers in Christ have so much to be thankful for. There is no one like our God! When we turn to Him, He  meets all our needs. His promises are forever and His word is true. One of the most beautiful promises we have can be found in Isaiah 40:29-31 NIV 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary,and young men stumble and fall;31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

In a day and age where most of us are far too busy for our own good we have ONE we can run to. We don’t have to try and recharge our own batteries with positive thinking and bogus crystals!  We have the real deal..we serve a living God that never lets us out of His sight!  Not only that but all He asks is that we turn to Him and He will replace our weariness with strength and replace our weakness with His power. Our hope is NOT in vain. Our hope is in Jehovah Jireh, our Lord and provider.

We must learn to put our trust and dependency on the ONE who is able to make a difference. Too many run to and fro to this friend or that friend, to their Pastor or neigbour, or to a relative wanting quick  answers and easy solutions instead of seeking the lover of their soul. Our Savior,healer, deliverer and comforter is waiting for us to turn to Him. Matthew 11:28-30 NIV 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Today, instead of turning on the t.v. or radio or picking up the phone for comfort, turn to Jesus. He longs to have fellowship with you. He loves you enough that He willingly laid down His life for you to be able to have a relationship with Him. Lay your troubles and your weariness at His feet and allow Him to wrap His arms of comfort around you as you spend time in His presence and in His word. As you put your trust in Him, He will renew your strength!

I have seen eagles here several times, but thi...

Isaiah 40:31 NIV But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
