This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.
What a year it has been… Fires in Australia, conflict with North Korea. Covid 19, stay at home orders, the terrible death of George Floyd, oh and murder hornets. So, what can we depend on, when our loved ones are sick? When people are scared? When people protest and then people riot?
Psalms 91 tells us “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Lean into the Lord almighty. Step onto his shade, let Him protect and defend you. I had an older brother growing up, who was strong and fierce (in a good way). I always struggled to be in his shadow but there came a day when a bully, who was much bigger and stronger than me threated me, grabbed me by the throat. In the coolest way possible my BIG brother exercised his BIG shadow, and the guy NEVER dared lay a hand on me again. Psalms 91 tells us to dwell in God’s VERY big shadow. Let HIM protect you! HIS truth will be your shield. God doesn’t change, even in the craziness of 2020. God is way more protective of us than my Big brother was of me!! It is the love of God that will deliver us and set us high upon the ROCK. Hold on to that, and reach out to your loved ones this week, and check on them?
