26 Jun Safe with Daddy
Life may feel overwhelming at times. The demands of daily existence pile up and pressures seem to push down on us with unbearable weight. Where do you run when you are in this place? When the enemy is attacking you? As children of God we have a safe place to run to: The Name above every name.
Proverbs 18:10 (NKJV)
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
Just think about some of the names of God: Mighty God; Everlasting Father; Prince of Peace, Wisdom, Lion of Judah; Helper; Saviour; Deliverer; Provider; Light of the world.
What is the single most urgent need you face today? For every need or distress you may face today, there is a name of God that covers it. Are you afraid? He is your Prince of Peace. Do you need guidance? He is your Wisdom. Do you need rescue? He is your Deliverer. Do you need money or things? He is your Provider.
When the pressures of life start to get you down, you don’t have run into the arms of retail therapy, alcohol, binge watching TV, overeating, drugs or sleep to get relief. Run into the Name of your loving Heavenly Father! Cast your cares on Him for He cares for you. Trust Him to help you, guide you and give you strength. He is faithful and will never loosen His grip on you. Allow Him to hold and help you.
Let’s pray: Father God, thank you that You are my safe place to run into. I grab hold of Your Name today. Instead of trying to fix my life in my own strength I call on You. You are my Helper, my Deliverer, my Saviour, my Provider and my Friend. Thank you that I am safe in the strong tower of Your Name. Amen.
