If you are like me your home is your sweet shelter from the world. It is a safe place, a sanctuary from the chaos and danger that swirls around us.
But there is another place that is safer than anywhere else. This scripture tells it all for those of us looking for peace and safety that the world cannot give us……
DEUTERONOMY 33: 27 “THE ETERNAL GOD IS YOUR REFUGE, AND HIS EVERLASTING ARMS ARE UNDER YOU.”
A dear friend of mine turned me onto the above verse. She has it highlighted in her Bible and she has given it as an agape gift as a bookmark and even reprinted the verse so you could frame it.
Our world is upended right now with destruction and strife. Everything we knew and loved is being either torn down or cancelled. The ground is shaken by woke ideology and what was once solid and safe appears to be gone. The darkness is upon us in a big way right now, so where can we go to find the light we so desperately need?
RUN TODAY INTO GOD’S EVERLASTING ARMS.
There is something to be said for strong arms around us, holding us when we desperately need it. We all have experienced arms embracing us and holding us tight with love.
EXODUS 6: 6-7 “I WILL REDEEM YOU WITH AN OUTSTRETCHED ARM AND GREAT ACTS OF JUDGEMENT. I WILL TAKE YOU AS MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD.”
Only GOD’S arms can guide us, keep us safe and secure and make us feel steady. HIS arms are the ultimate security. GOD said this to JOB:
JOB 40: 9 “DO YOU HAVE AN ARM LIKE GOD’S?”
And the answer to that question is a definite no, not now and not ever!
GOD’S EVERLASTING ARMS ARE THERE FOR THE WEAK AND BROKEN.
HIS arms offer so much: salvation, refuge, love, security, safety and peace. All these things are found there and so much more!
When you are walking closely with GOD, HIS arms surround you daily. Once you have given your heart and soul to the LORD, HIS arms can carry you through anything you encounter. HIS arms are around you and under you, even above you, to carry you today dear one. As you read this, HE is carrying you through whatever trouble that is worrying you right now.
We all carry burdens and our crosses, some carry more than others. But the LORD’S arms are the same for everyone. Because GOD’S arms are long, they are enduring and they never fail to lift us up when we need it. When we come to the end of ourselves, HIS arms are the only place we can run to.
Because GOD’S promises are true and they never disappoint, we can count on HIS secure arms being around us into eternity…….
HOSEA 11: 3 “…….I TOOK THEM IN MY ARMS; BUT THEY DID NOT KNOW THAT I HEALED THEM.”
HOW OFTEN WE DO NOT EVEN KNOW THAT THROUGH OUR TROUBLES……..HE CARRIED US! Yes, we see it when we look back in hindsight…..but during our struggle, it is another matter. HIS promises are true and HE promises to carry us.
PSALM 98: 1 “HIS RIGHT HAND HAS WON A MIGHTY VICTORY; HIS HOLY ARM HAS SHOWN HIS SAVING POWER.”
Isn’t it wonderful to know you can rest in those victorious arms? HE alone is the victory we need, and HE alone sustains us in HIS powerful arms. Any doubt and any fear vanish in those glorious immovable arms of the LORD. Find rest there today loved ones!
PSALM 98: 1 “SING A NEW SONG TO THE LORD, FOR HE HAS PERFORMED WONDERS; HIS RIGHT HAND AND HOLY ARM HAVE WON HIM VICTORY.”
