Our Protector in the Storm
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. (Psalm 91:4–6)
The Lord our God is our ultimate source of protection and strength and our ever-present need in time of trouble. Earthly sources may claim to have all the answers for us, but these sources are subject to fail us in our desperate plea for help. But if we go to our one true source first and foremost, He will provide the path already paved before us. We take shelter under God’s wings and wait for Him in all our affairs.
Behold, I am your comforter and provider. Your ultimate source of protection in times of need. Fear not in My presence, for I have come so that you may have life. At times, it may seem as though you are walking a dark path, alone in a fallen world that once held you prisoner to your greatest strength and abilities. As you look around, the world draws you deeper into its desolate hole. Do not be fooled by this empty course that tries sinking you to the bottom. Instead, reach out high as you call out My name. Do not look to the side at your opposing forces but, rather, upward to the heavens where I am omnipresent to wrap you in My loving arms, never allowing harm to invade you. Trust in Me for protection and strength, for I am your provider in times of trouble and for all eternity. Remember to shift your focus, thoughts, and actions to My house, where I welcome them with open, extended arms, and find peace. I am always there, sheltering you from the storms of life.
Do not be afraid, Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, Israel. I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid. (Jeremiah 46:27)
Prayer for the Day
Father in heaven, thank You for being my hope and my shelter in my time of need. Please provide me with the strength to make it through the storms of life and help me to remain faithful to You, never giving up on Your plan for my life. I find rest under Your wing because I believe You love me and do what’s best for me as I call out to You in prayer. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.
