He Has You Surrounded


To be able to behold the beauty of these mountains even from a distance can be breathtaking. God Himself has carved out wonders upon His earth and has given us an opportunity to share in them. As we behold the beauty of the mountains and the trees, we can also experience God's protection surrounding us. The Scripture reminds us that, just as the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is around his people from henceforth even forever. I encourage you today to experience all the beauty The Lord is surrounding you with. No matter where you go the hand of the Lord is on you, and He is walking with you every step of the way. Just as the mountains at times can fade in the background of a cloudy day, so can the hand of The Lord on your life fade out the trials of your day. Always remember that just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, The Lord is always surrounding you, not only with His beauty, but also with His protection. The Lord is surrounding you with His love, joy, and peace every step you take. When the day becomes difficult, remember The Lord is surrounding you. When people walk away from you, remember The Lord is surrounding you. When it looks and feels like you are all alone, remember The Lord is surrounding you. I am grateful for the beauty of the mountains around me, and the peace I find as I look at them, but I am thankful to God for The Lord surrounding me with His presence every day. Since I know that The Lord is always around about me I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"



Thank you Lord, for surrounding me with your beaty and protection. Thank you for always being there for me and keeping me safe from all hurt, harm, and danger. In Jesus Name Amen.
