A Penny's Worth o Thought:Comfort in Your Time of Need

February 27, 2015, 8:54 AM

Stop and think about this:  God is never surprised or taken off guard by evil.  Evil never catches God by surprise.  He has seen it all before, he knows when it will happen and He has defeated it all.  No matter what ISIS or North Korea or the neighborhood bully does...God knew, God knows God is victorious.

"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me." Psalm 23:4

As a child of God, you are never alone!  Your Shepherd is with you all the time.  He never takes his eyes off of you.  He knows everything about you, everything you go through, and every need you will ever have.  He will never turn His back on you or even look away from you.  

As a Child of God, you never have to feel afraid.  Sometimes your Shepherd has to lead you through dark places to get you to the place He wants you to be.  He does not always lead you through the places you want to go or you think are easiest.  We would not chose to go through the shadow of the valley of death.  But, we must remember it is only a shadow that He leads you through.  As God leads you, He knows what is around every corner and he knows what is in the shadows.  He leads you, which means He goes before you and watches over you to protect you.  He also knows your fears and will never lead you through something he that you cannot handle.

There is nothing to fear because He protects you.  God is bigger than your fears, your enemies and your troubles.  The tougher things seem to get for you the closer God holds you.  Even when you can't see God or even feel Him know by faith that He is there...because He has promised and God is faithful.

You will experience the Love and comfort in far greater ways in your greatest need than you will in your greatest ease.

Trust God and His protection today.  Trust that He knows what is best.  Trust Him because He loves you as no one has ever done and find comfort in your time of need.
