Leaning On The Everlasting Arms
The eternal God is your dwelling place,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.—Deuteronomy 33:27
Many years ago, I remember visiting Pompeii, Italy. The immortalized statues of families cornered in homes embracing each other at the eruption of Mount Vesuvius (79 A.D.) is embossed on my mind forever. But isn't it interesting that in calamity an embrace is particularly comforting? In moments of great fear, we run into the protective arms of another. But the arms a believing man runs into are even more secure. They are descriptively called everlasting arms. And you can run to them at any time for safety, security, and assurance in the tragedies of your life.
DO THIS: Run to God, he's got big arms.
PRAY THIS: God, you are greater than all my troubles. Shelter me in your strength.
