In light of all that has been happening in our world over the last month, I chose today to address the fact that some of you may be challenged with fear and worry. It’s easy to say I will not fear or become worried, it’s another to live it. Sometimes we need each other to stand together with our shields up.
With terrorism, Ebola, financial crisis, crime of all kinds seemingly all around, you may have even wished you could go and find a place to hide with your family in some far away safe refuge. But where is that refuge?
Well, today, dear ladies, we may be very much separated by distance, but our hearts can be knitted together as one family under the Lordship of Jesus. Therefore, let us go together to the One who is our refuge. I don’t know how many ladies will open, read and act upon this devotional today, but I do know we are many in number. Close your eyes and picture us together coming before our Lord, the Father of all, the King of Kings to declare His Word. It will be healing to your mind and heart.
Today, together let us worship His Holy Name. (1 Chron. 16:29; Ps. 29:2)
Today, together let us declare, “My fortress, my refuge is my God. I shall not be moved from His abiding presence under His wings.” (Psalm 91)
Today, together let us declare, “I have not been given a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
Today, together let us declare, “My God is the one who goes ahead of me, He is with me, He will not fail me or forsake me. I shall not fear or be dismayed.” (Deut. 31:8)
And now, dear one, may the peace beyond all understanding guard your heart and mind. (Phil. 4:7)
