With what’s going on around you do you feel like you’re surrounded?
Living in an increasingly unstable world has its real challenges. Dangers, terrorism, new viruses, economic struggles and broken families surround us on all sides. In the middle of these things that can crush our peace, it’s comforting to know that we can look to God, to surround us with His protection.
“As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people both now and forevermore” (Psalm 125). We hear about ‘surround sound’. This is ‘surround protection’!
When Elisha was surrounded by a strong army he told his servant, “Don’t be afraid, those who are with us are more than those who are with them” (2 Kings). The servant opened his eyes and saw the hills filled with horses and chariots of fire.
John reminds us, “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world”. 1 John 4
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2
God will protect us from trouble and surround us with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32
You’re surrounded! How’s that for a picker upper!!
