“Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness, To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.” Psalm 33:18-19 Amplified
God is faithful to those who love Him. We can see Him do the impossible for the people who love Him throughout the Bible. We would be right to say that the Bible is one great ‘Love story’ – the unquenchable love God has for His children. Look at the numerous wars that God fought for His chosen people Israel. They had very few resources, their army was very small compared to their enemy’s armies. Yet God fought their battles for them and won them too.
We can also see how God saved Noah and his family even when the entire population of the earth was wiped out. The Lord chose Noah because he was faithful to Him. The prophets of God had to go through a lot of hardship – famine, persecution and great suffering but God brought them out of each experience. He even commanded the ravens to feed His prophet Elijah when he was alone by the brook at Cherith!
We keep hearing news about death due to the pandemic and disasters such as earthquakes, cyclones, floods or other calamity. Surrounded by all these circumstances it is natural for most people to fear for their own lives too.
God’s Word says He delivered His own from death and kept them alive in famine. His Word is always true. Keep holding on to the LORD and trust in His word and He will keep you safe from all harm.
Trust the Lord, He is the best source of security you will ever have.
“Dear Jesus, thank You for Your assurance that You are with me always. Thank You for keeping me safe and providing for my needs. Help me to grow closer to You and receive Your provision and protection everyday, Amen.”
