It has been hot this week and I noticed there were lots of vehicles stranded by the side of the road between Virginia and Missouri. Some had flat tires, overheated engines or simply ran out of gas. There were signs posted all along the highways with instructions for ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE. I don't think there is anything worse than being stranded in an unfamiliar area with no one to call upon for help.
Many times we find ourselves in that same place spiritually. We become stranded on the highway of life lonely and no where to turn. We have a choice to make when we find ourselves in that place. Do we search within ourselves for the answers or do we call upon the ONE who has ALL the answers?
I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip, he who watches over you will not slumber;indeed , he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life (Psalm 121: 1-4; 7).
So you see, even when the enemy comes pounding at our doors fully equipped with his garbage, Jesus will take care of him when we make the choice to place our trust in the Lord. When depression sets in, our God will fill our minds with encouragement. When loneliness overwhelms our being, our God will pour His love into our hearts. He never sleeps. He is always watching over you and I.
I am thankful today for my roadside assistance provided by my Jesus in this hectic and stressful life. God is so awesome. He continues to bless us abundantly and His way far exceeds our plans. Thank you Lord for your protection, provision and love. I pray that I will always demonstrate the willingness to allow YOU to assist me when making decisions and choices.
Blessings and hugs to you today!
