“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth” (Psalm 145:18).

Scripture invites us to hide ourselves “in” our Heavenly Father when we are fearful, when we’re feeling the grips of sin, or when we’re under undue pressure. “You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah” (Psalm 32:7). The Lord is our reliable shelter. We find refuge in Him as a merciful and loving “Abba” Father. “God is our refuge and strength; always ready to help in times of trouble” (Psalm 46:1).

Wherever life takes you today—whatever trials or circumstances you face, good or bad— God is your Champion! He’s in your corner. He’s wiping the sweat from your brow and giving you the strength to endure the journey. HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT! Trust Him! Give it to Him and let it go. To all who believe, His grace abounds!

Guiding Points:

Call to Action: The Book of Psalms has some really amazing verses on God surrounding us with His love and protection. Let them encourage you today!

“Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in You alone” (Psalm 33:22).

“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him and rescues them” (Psalm 34:7).

“As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever” (Psalm 125:2).

Prayer: Father God, Your name is high and lifted! You are a mighty and wonderful God surrounding us with Your glory. We know that Your grace is sufficient for us in everything. We trust in You and cast all our cares at Your feet. In Your name, we pray, Amen!

Final Thought: “The Prayer of Protection: The light of God surrounds us; The love of God enfolds us; The power of God protects us; The Presence of God watches over us; Wherever we are, God is!” (James Dillet Freeman, 1940).

While there may be some uncertainty about next steps, God’s Word provides direction for the road ahead.

When we seek His face and lean into Him, He promises to be with us in every step of the journey (Matthew 6:33).
