The Lord Is There
Life has so many challenges that we face on a daily basis and each of us needs a time to get away from everything and everyone every now and then. Life has a way of weighing us down, and trying to escape the weight becomes difficult with each step we attempt to take. Not only do we feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders, but we also have to deal with trouble that comes our way. There is never a time when we have to look for trouble; trouble has a way of finding us, and when it does, we attempt to get out of the trouble that has now found us. When trouble finds us there are some things we can get out of by ourselves, and then there is some trouble that we need someone to help us out. It is good to know that when trouble arises we have The Lord on our side to help us, and to deliver us from those things that have come against us. The Scripture reminds us that, the Lord is our hiding place, He preserves us from trouble, He surrounds us with shouts of deliverance. I encourage you today to remember that The Lord is your hiding place, and He will keep you in the time of trouble. Remember that no matter what it is that you are facing The Lord is there for you, and He will hide you from all those things that try to come against you, and what He cannot hide you from, He will keep you in the midst of. Do not lose hope because of trouble and what it may look like right now, remember that The Lord will deliver you with shouts of deliverance, and when The Lord shouts deliverance in your situation you will be delivered. When trials and tribulations come your way keep your head up, and know that The Lord is by your side, surrounding you with shouts of deliverance, and when He shouts you will be free from everything that has tried to hold you down or back from your destiny. I am thankful to know that The Lord is my hiding place, and He keeps me from trouble and even in the midst of trouble, He will surround me with shouts of deliverance. Since I know that The Lord is my keeper and my deliverance I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for being my hiding place, thank you for keeping me in the midst of what life has thrown at me. Continue to surround me with your presence. In Jesus Name, Amen.
