Proverbs 8:29 “I was there when he set the limits of the seas, so they would not spread beyond their boundaries. And when he marked off the earth’s foundations,” Humans struggle with being told what to do. Everyone wants to be the Captain, to be in charge, to take orders…

Through faith he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith” (Hebrews 11:7, New English Translation). Several years ago, I moved…

The Message version of the Bible says, “You’ve kept track of my every toss and turn through the sleepless night. Each tear entered in your ledger, each ache written in your book” (Psalm 56:8). Your search for God reveals that He is right there with you. He hears and He sees all that has to do with you. The writer of this Psalm, King David, feared for his life at the hands of Saul and was hiding out with Ziphites when they told Saul where he was. David was in a desperate situation and God heard him. Be assured that He doesn’t ever leave you; even when it seems your world is turning upside down. Just call His name for He is right there with you.

Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for listening when I call upon You. I’m so glad I learned that You are as close as the mention of Your name. It’s good to know You are a strong tower we can run to when the enemy comes in like a flood.

    “When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by.” (Exodus 33:22 in the New International Version.) During a recent vacation in the mountains of North Carolina I observed clefts tucked away in the rocks. They looked like little porches where a bird or small animal could stay to weather out a storm. This portion of scripture let Moses know that God was going to shelter him in time of storm. 1 Corinthians 10:4 said, “That rock was Christ.” It’s not speaking of these clefts but it’s talking about our God being a refuge. As we were walking and observing God’s beautiful creation my mind went to this passage. These clefts are not man made; they are made by God alone. He formed them with His own hands. He shelters us from the storms of life when we belong to Him.
    Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the special shelters You have prepared for Your people. Though the storm rages on all around me, I’m protected by the cleft of the rock.

    When a person is endangered from an external source, law enforcement officers may place them in protective custody for safety reasons. I like to think this is what Jesus had in mind when He offered a prayer for my safety in a world where evil persists. I imagine Him placing an invisible shield around me. I am in His protective custody.
    “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one,” (John 17:15 from the Holy Bible, New King James).
    Prayer : Thank You Lord for a shield that surrounds me. I am in Your protective custody. Amen.
