“Whither shall I go from Thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from Thy presence? If I ascend to heaven, thou art there! If I make my bed in Sheol, thou art there! If I take up the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there thy hand shall lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.”
These words of the psalmist talk of God’s total help by constantly offering to guide and protect. When you read them, you are reassured by their strength and beauty. They inspire you more when you realize that the author was writing in a time of conflict and danger. In biblical times, life was far more dangerous than it is now, but people with faith in God found constant help and inspiration to sustain them, just as they do, today.
God is your help and inspiration in your every need. Place yourself and those that you care about in God’s loving care. First thing in the morning, when you get up, entrust your day to God’s keeping. Before you go to sleep that night, again acknowledge God’s ever-abiding Spirit. From this attitude of calmness and poise will come new power, strength, and Divine realization. You will realize that God is truly taking care of that which you give to God’s charge. You will have the assurance, conviction, and realization that you, your life, and all that you care about are safe and secure in the Divine loving presence.
The realization that you live, move, and have your being in God brings you to a sense of peace and security. If you have been holding thoughts of fear for yourself or for those that you care about, you release those thoughts now. You acknowledge that you and your loved ones abide, eternally, in the protecting presence of God.
You cultivate the habit of saying NO to fear, and saying YES to God, in your daily living. All the seeming hazards of the world bring no fear or uneasiness, because your faith is centered in God’s abiding presence. Today, you put your whole trust in God, and God will keep you and those that you care about safe and secure. God will watch over you and shield you, and guide you, and bless you with wisdom and good judgment. God will bring you safely through every experience.
God’s presence is instantaneously available to you. You are established in a citadel of strength, for you are established in God which nothing can prevail against. God is indeed a help in time of trouble, a refuge, and the fortress for those who need God. God’s promise of help will always stand, for God always answers faithful prayers.
Jesus always said that God will be with God’s children wherever they may be. How heartening it is to know that no matter where you or your loved ones go, you are never separated from God whose Spirit covers the globe like a protecting mantle. Above, around, within, below is God’s protecting presence, and for each one who looks to God there is love, peace, courage, and life. Even if those who need help lack faith in themselves, others can pray for them and the Spirit of God will answer. Wherever there is faith and trust, there the angel of the Lord spreads the secret shelter of God’s wings.
God is always victorious. Prayer transforms the world. The power that is with you is mightier than anything that can happen to you.
