God protects His people!
Michele Morris here. Posting for Jodie Wolf.
I have a question for you. Is it just me, or does the world seem to be moving toward the “end times”? Fast.
There are so many horrible things happening out there. Wars, disease, natural disasters . . . well, I don’t have to go on, I’m sure you’ve heard it all. You can’t watch the television or read a newspaper without hearing, reading, or seeing the troubling things.
Today I felt prompted to share God’s news.
His Good News.
As I started to look up Bible verses, I began to realize there was a trend in what I read. See if you can see it in these few verses.
"It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8
"You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance." Psalm 32:7-8
"When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles." Psalm 34:17
So, do see it yet? Here’s a few more . . .
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14.27
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
"When I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee. In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can [mere] man do to me?" Psalm 56:3-4
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16.33
When you hear the news channel talk about how bad it is out there in the world, remember these verses.
God keeps His Word!
