He Will  Strengthen  And Protect  You

When the storms  of life  are overwhelming,  we seek protection.     In this world,  there is every kind  of life’s storm  imaginable  —  everything  from tornadoes  —  job loss  —  sickness  —  accident  —  evil accusers  —  false prophets.     You name it.

These are situations  in which  we are totally helpless.     But,  God is not.     The apostle Paul  had this  to say  in 2 Thessalonians 3:1-3,

Finally,  brethren,  pray  for us  that the word  of the Lord  will spread rapidly  and be glorified,  just as it did also  with you;  and that we will be rescued  from perverse  and evil men;  for not all  have faith.     But  the Lord  is faithful,  and He will strengthen  and protect you  from the evil one.

Paul’s particular problem  at that moment  in his life  was “perverse  and evil men”  who did not  “have faith”.     In other epistles,  Paul mentions  many other problems  he had to face  over the years.     The end point  is that  no matter what  we have  to face,  “the Lord  is faithful,  and He will strengthen  and protect you  from the evil one”.

We tend  to forget that  in the middle  of our  overwhelming situations.     But,  it is good  to be reminded  of the LORD’s faithful  and everlasting love  that carries us through everything  we need  to face.

Ever glad  for our Savior’s sure faithfulness,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  it is good  and comforting  to remember  that You are working everything  for our good  in the end  of all things.     Thank You.”

Love,
Margaret
