For He will hide me in His shelter in the day of trouble; He will conceal me under the cover of His tent; He will set me high on a rock. Now my head is lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the Lord.” Psalm 27:5-6 It is the power of the Holy Spirit and His grace that allows us function in difficult times.
Nothing can happen to us that God will not protect us from; He will also protect us from people who may be working against us. If in times of trouble, we are not able to rise above fear and anxiety, it is an indication that WE have let go of our Father’s hand and drifted off on our own trip! We need to come back to Him and leave our cares and worries in His loving hands and rest assured that our God loves us and will always take care of us. God our Father’s love, goes out to every child of His, even when we are wayward He continues to love and protect us.
