Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Scripture

Psalm 18: 1-24 A Prayer for Justice

Verse 16 He reached down from heaven and rescued me; he drew me out of deep waters.

Observation

Verses 7-15 are scary! It describes what happens to the earth in God's anger. I am so grateful I have been adopted into God's family and am protected by Him!

The verse that really spoke to me today was verse 16. I often feel overwhelmed - like I am drowning. This verse reminded me that all I have to do is reach up - God is reaching down from heaven waiting to rescue me. I may not be rescued from the troubles I am facing but my rescue is in the safety I can have with God's protection.

Application

We need to continually look up because God is waiting to pull us into His protection. All around us are trials and evil but when we are focused on God we are held in His loving safety.

Prayer

Lord thank you for delighting in me and protecting me even when I am allowing the world to overwhelm me. Help me to overcome the troubles in my life and be able to focus more on the wonderful protection you give me.
