My Father and my Shield.....

LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. Psalm 16:5

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2

Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident. Psalm 27:3

I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13

There is protection in our Father's arms. Nothing can harm us against God's will. In fact, God planned every step you would take and every breath you would take before you were formed in the womb. Ever string of hair on your head is placed by design. Satan's desire to destroy you is nothing to God. He does not worry about it. God is never taken by surprise and He knew what problems you would have to face before you were born. He knows the beginning and the end because He is Omnipresent. In the book of Job, Satan needed permission from God before he attempted to harm Job. Listen, God has the authority over all creation and all that is within creation. He is the Creator. God is able and willing to protect those who are His own. Until you have finished the race, there is no power in heaven or earth that can take you out of this life and away from your Father's arms. Though you will not know when you finish the race, you know that God does and you can trust Him. you are safe in His arms.

The promise of keeping us safe is a promise you can rely on. In fact, you can rely on all of God's promises. He loves you. He can't lie. It is against His nature to tie. He is the truth. My friend when trouble comes your way, you can trust that your heavenly Father will bring you out safely. You will not die but you will live for His glory. Amen. Nothing should scare you, and definitely not sickness, disease, pain and lack. God has it all under control. He is the giver of life. He can repair you or He can build you all new. You are never too broken to be fixed. There is nothing that He cannot do. I don't care what you see, what the doctors say and what it looks like. You can trust God. This period of your life is for His glory. You can totally, peacefully and joyously rest in your Father's arms. He will not drop you and He will not let anything snatch you away and that is for sure. You can have joy through this pain. He is able!

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy. Jude 1:24
