Supreme Place of Safety

Today's Scripture

“Call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me,” - (Psalm 50:15, NIV).

Thoughts for Today

Deep in the Arabian Desert is a small fortress. It stands silently on the vast expanse of the ageless desert. Thomas Edward Lawrence, known as Lawrence of Arabia, often used it. Though unpretentious, it was most efficient. Its main commendation was its security. When under attack, often by superior forces, Lawrence would retreat there for safety.

While staying there, the resources of the fortress became his—the food and the water stored there were life-supporting. The strength of the fortress became the strength of its occupants. Old-time desert dwellers talked about how confident and secure Lawrence always felt when he was within the walls of the fortress.

Prayer is the believer’s greatest fortress. It is a place we can run to any time of the day or night. The strength and protection we receive in God’s presence are unmatched by this world. The name of Jesus and His blood are even more assuring than walls made of stone, iron or concrete.

In Matthew, Jesus provides tremendous insight on how to stand against the enemy’s attacks:

Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them, (Matthew 18:18-20, NIV).

He has provided a supreme place of safety for you. Whenever confusion, fear, or feelings of doubt assail your mind, turn to Him. Pray for His protection to surround you and ask Him to provide the strength you need to stand firm against any and all deception.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for providing me with the safety of Your strength, power and salvation. Because You’ve set up your kingdom in my heart, I call on Your power to defeat feelings of fear, doubt and confusion. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
