Shadow of the Almighty
As I reflected on 911 this morning, I remember people asking where God was on this day. The short answer is that God was right where He has always been, reigning and ruling from Most High. The truth is, long before and since that fateful day, there have been, and always will be 911 moments in our lives. The towers of our health, wealth, and emotional stability can, and often do, come under attack. When that occurs, we often ask God, where are you? The answer is always the same. I am here, "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isa. 41:10)."
For most emergencies, we know help is readily available by dialing 911. But there are also times when our towers collapse, and we must seek our heavenly first responder. Sadly, many try to manage those events on their own. But in a crisis, we can quickly forget our God is with us. Friends, God's protection, provision, and presence are always available when we seek Him. So, the next time a tower collapses in your life, call a different 911, call for God's divine assistance and assurance in Psalm 91:1. In this reassuring old Psalm, often referred to as the Soldier's Psalm, we are reminded that God is our refuge. Never Forget, "Whoever dwells in the shelter of the, Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
