“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy. For you bless the godly, O Lord; you surround them with your shield of love.”
Insight: Charles Swindoll said, "When you suffer and lose, that does not mean you are being disobedient to God. In fact, it might mean you're right in the centre of His will. The path of obedience is often marked by times of suffering and loss." In these moments we can be comforted and rejoice in knowing that God loves us and is with us always, a safe harbor in the storm.
Prayer: Lord, you are my safe harbor during life’s storms, and I thank you for the joy that only you can give. Help me to be obedient in all that I do as I pursue the path that you have laid out before me. You are a strong and compassionate God and I love you. In Jesus name, Amen.
