God Keeps His Own

Read Psalm 121

The powerful King of Aram had sent a portion of his army to capture Elisha.
By night, they came and surrounded the city
where Elisha and his servant were staying.

When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh, my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked.

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

And Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6:15-17, NIV)

God’s children are precious to Him.
He never leaves our safety to chance.
He guards us with the full power and authority of His sovereignty.
He may ask us to suffer and even die for Him.
But we remain secure in Him.
No one can snatch us out of His hands.

As I wait in the darkness, my God,
You are working out Your purpose.

Hymn: I Find All My Joy in You

Today in Your Care

Sovereign God,
You dwell in eternity,
unmoved by time.
Your promises,
Your purposes,
Your burning love are
always now,
always sure,
always undiminished.

I am in Your tender care.
Here in You,
nothing is forgotten,
nothing ignored,
nothing overlooked,
nothing left to chance.
Your purpose is never threatened.
You suffer no surprises and
no setbacks.
You are not bound
by the present or the past,
by norms or impossibilities.

Within me is
weakness, and
But You have hidden me in Yourself.
I am completely,
untouchably safe in You.
