"I will lift up mine eyes
unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he
that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall
neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade
upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by
night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy
soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this
time forth, and even for evermore."
For those of us who are going through the devastation of all the
hurricanes we have had since the hurricane season started, and for those
of us who are going through the hurricanes of life, Jesus is our
We may not think or feel that He is protecting us, however He does protect
us. Sometimes, He protects us in ways that we donít even realize.
I have read stories about people saying that if we had left the house just
five minutes earlier, we would have been involved in that wreck.
No matter what the storm is in your life today, be it the storms of
nature, or the storms of anguish, desperation, confusion, turmoil,
loneliness, and heartbreak, Jesus Loves you very much and longs to comfort
you. However, you have to open your heart to Him and tell Him
everything that you are feeling. He knows everything, but He wants
us to tell Him.
Give the storms in your life to Jesus and allow Him to bring Peace,
Restoration, and Joy back into your heart and life.
