|'Child With Dove' by Jean-Baptiste Greuze (1725-1805)|
"...O that I had wings like a dove, for then would I fly away, and be at rest" (Psalm 55:6).
Have you ever felt like this?
When we are oppressed by evil people and/or spiritual enemies, or when trouble in the world around us brings us fear, anguish, and overwhelming anxiety, all too often we may wish to find a way of escape from our present troubles. This past week has been such a time for me.
This past week has been one of the worst weeks on record all the way around. Not only has it been incredibly long, but it has been full of battles on every front and I am weary. However, despite the fact that battles (especially spiritual battles) rage on all fronts, I am fully aware that escape from such situations is impossible. The real solution can be found only by seeking refuge in God.
"As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. Evening,
and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear
my voice. He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was
against me: or there were many with me" (Psalm 55:16-18).
As did David, you and I are at liberty to call upon God at any time...evening, morning, and noon...as we cast our burdens upon Him and look to Him to sustain us.
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1).
Have a beautiful and blessed week ahead!
All My Love,
