When I am afraid, I will put my trust and faith in You. Psalm 56:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Do you remember when you were afraid of the dark ( especially after watching a late night horror movie ) ? You insisted on leaving the light on as protection from the “ boogy man “.
We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who is the light of the world to comfort us and lead us through the dark scary times in our lives.
Do you remember how afraid you felt the first time you saw lightening and felt the ground tremble under your feet?
We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who is the solid rock that when terrible strong disasters strike out of no where He will be our strong hold to protect us through them .
Do you remember when we were children and were told to stay away from the streams and rivers during the spring thaw and the waters were raging ?
We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who places us upon the high places to safety when the floods of pains, disaster and sorrow come raging into our lives.
“Be thou a bright flame before me,|Be thou a guiding star above me,|Be thou a smooth path below me,|Be thou a kindly shepherd behind me,|Today – tonight – and for ever.” — Columba of Iona
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer ( The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with Your omnipotent love , assurance , comfort and strength through out all my many times of trouble. I extol You in the name of He calmed the storm for His disciples Jesus Christ . Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
