Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

A VERY LOUD Horn

Psalm 34:4- “I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”

 

Each summer, our family made our trek to see our Grandparents and extended family back east. As it got closer to the time of the trip, I would grow more and more anxious about traveling over the Arizona mountains. I learned to pray for our safety in the days leading up to our vacation.

The one lane road over the Salt River Canyon (which was reconstructed and widened some years ago) had countless switchbacks and when another vehicle approached, coming from the opposite direction, Dad would need to pull to the side as far as possible in order to let the other car pass.

On one such trip, when Dad fell asleep at the wheel, a semi-trucker blew his horn to wake him just in the nick of time. It was then that I became a true believer in the importance of praying in all circumstances. 

All six of us had been sleeping, but God was watching over us and sent a huge eighteen-wheeler with a VERY LOUD horn to warn our father of impending danger.

Finding Refuge

Psalm 62:8- “Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.”

 

A family vacationing abroad was recently thrust into a situation of international intrigue. They felt alone and isolated, due in part that they did not speak the language of the host country.

They turned to the American embassy, seeking safety and shelter from pursuit of dangerous foreigners.

There are times when we, too, may feel things/people are coming against us. 

Where can we turn… to whom should we turn?

Psalm 62:8 reminds us that we can cry out to the Lord “at all times.” We can pour out our hearts to our heavenly father.

He wants us to find our refuge in Him.

You’re In Good Hands

My daughter and son-in-law own an insurance agency, so I find myself paying special attention to television advertising for various companies.

 
One I haven’t seen in a long time, is for a company with a logo about being in “Good Hands.”

 
There is no denying that being in “Good Hands” brings to mind images of safety.

 
We sang a song last week in our church which brought the same feelings—Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.

 
In this world of chaos and unrest, isn’t it comforting to know that we can experience safety? Secure in knowing we belong to the Almighty God…the creator…the sustainer?

 
He is in control.

 
Yes, he allows certain things. But He works out everything ultimately for His good purpose.

 

We can face life’s circumstances with His everlasting arms around us.
