"One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord
And to meditate in His temple. For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle. In the secret place of His tent, He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock." Psalm 27:4-5 NIV
No matter the adversity, storms, and difficulties we face, we have a Lord who shepherds us in them, whose love endears us to him, and whose grace sustains, even in situations appearing dire and impossible. May we remember our Lord is faithful, maintaining in each circumstance endured. Our Lord intimately joins with us in pain and suffering, and in this, he is the source.
When others choose to lie, deceive and attack, our Lord's love is enough. When others choose to serve evil over good, grace is fully supplied. When others speak death, our Lord breathes rivers of life.
Our Lord's life was broken and crushed that we might live and know the goodness, truth, and authenticity of holy love. This love is manifested within the community and is displayed in genuine relationships. This love sustains you, I, and us in all the troubles we encounter in this world.
May we hold dear that you, I, and we as the beloved ones of the highest God have been amply supplied in the warmth, caring passion of our Lord’s divine love. This love becomes sufficient power to hold, embrace, strengthen and carry us in anything we face while on this earth.
Remind us Lord that we are secured in your assurance to be with us in the good and bad, in the ups and downs, and in all difficulties. As we draw near to you, you have promised to draw near to us. May we cease struggling, stop resisting, and come to you in weariness, exhaustion, and wondering. Thank you for pursuing, beckoning, comforting, leading, guiding me and each one reading these words in trials, storms, and adversity by your steadfast, merciful love.
