The safest place in the world is the will of God!
After I preach this morning, I’m leaving on a ministry endeavor in another country today, so I will not be able to blog again until November 11. I, along with a couple of other men, will be ministering to pastors and conducting evangelistic crusades. Please pray for us when we come to mind, that the Lord will direct our steps, that we will be protected from harm, that the Word of God will penetrate the hearts of the pastors and encourage them, and that many will be born again during the evangelistic meetings.
Let me encourage you to go back and read my posts from October 24th through October 28th where I discuss the sequence of events before the return of Christ. These events may be happening sooner rather than later, and to be forewarned is to be forearmed!
I’ll leave you with God’s promise of protection:
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. (2) This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. (3) For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. (4) He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. (5) Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. (6) Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. (7) Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. (8) Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. (9) If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, (10) no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. (11) For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. (12) They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. (13) You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! (14) The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. (15) When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. (16) I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
