In an instant, I was awakened out of a deep sleep. As my eyes opened, I heard these words: "What would you do if a tsunami hit Hawaii?" Undisturbed, I answered, "I would go to higher ground, but You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies. You save me from violent opponents." The Lord ha ..
God has said that He would place a hedge around us to protect us from all evil. He has even said He would protect our coming in and going out. Day and night God is our guard; He will not sleep or slumber as He surrounds us with His care. Never forget: We may feel like we are being surrounded ..
The dangers we face actually go beyond those reported to us in the news. Paul warns that attacks will come against us from sources that seem less dangerous but are just as debilitating. He says: "For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to ..
In times of danger or disaster, fear tries to seize us. It's fear that gives Satan power in our lives. Notice Hebrews 2:15: "...through death he [Jesus] might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject t ..

The Apostle Paul experienced more calamity and disaster in his life than we can begin to imagine. He was shipwrecked three times, once having to spend a day and a half in the sea. He was beaten three times. He faced danger not only in the city, but also in the country. He was attacked by robbers ..
Isaiah 40:11 demonstrates just how tenderhearted the Lord is toward His children: "He shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom" (NASV). Why does He carry His lambs in His bosom? Because our weakness melts His heart. He has bound Himself by a covenant to care for each lamb ..
