Just as every time I am made to stop, God opens my eyes to what He is doing in that moment. I realized that even though the wind was howling, God was keeping us safe and secure. It seems like this has been my life theme since 2020. As things have changed and surprised us over the last year and a half, God has continually showed us that He cares for us and is keeping us safe. Whether it was keeping us from becoming ill, providing our needs from day to day, or keeping us safe from storms (both figuratively and literally), God was faithful to show He cares for us.
Sometimes things happen that leave us feeling vulnerable and we do not feel His presence. What if we do become ill, or we cannot find things we need, or we get stuck out in the storm? Is it because He is distracted or that He doesn’t love us? Quite the opposite! It is times like these that we learn to lean on Him, learn what He wants to teach us, and learn to depend on Him more.
It is through illness that we realize He is our comfort and strength.
Through times when we feel lack or need, we learn that He is the provider of everything good.
During storms in our lives, when life is chaotic and we feel fear and helplessness, we learn that He is our hope and salvation.
His care for His children is constant because He does not change.
Next time you are sick, or in need, or are experiencing chaos in your life, I hope these verses will remind you that He will keep you safe through every storm.
