In the city, the waters rise. We can’t tear our eyes from the images.
We call, we text, we pray.
In our homes, at work, we swim in our own tension, barely keeping our heads above water.
We are overpowered and under-equipped, and we know it.
So we run for shelter.
“The Lord sits enthroned over the engulfing waters,
the Lord sits enthroned as the eternal king.
The Lord gives his people strength;
the Lord grants his people security.” Psalm 29:10-11.
Whatever waters are engulfing you today, the only safe place is with the forever-King.
The King who can promises His stabilizing presence to His people, only because He allowed Himself to be engulfed in the flood of God’s wrath.
And now, we seek shelter from the punishment we deserve in the shelter of those wounds.
If He has granted us shelter from such a storm at great expense to Himself, He can be trusted in this storm. Here. Now.
Lord give us us strength in the midst of whatever storm we find ourselves in. As the waters rise, plant our feet on solid ground. On Christ. Thank you that You are King over the flood. There are no surprises with You. Give us grace to trust You more. We ask it in the strong and secure name of Jesus.
