When all around us gives way like sinking sand.
When all that we depended on and hoped for is threatened.
When our valid concerns morph into horrific fears.
When our dreams are dashed ... and sorrow pours in like a flood.
These are precisely the times when we need to focus on Jesus.
To choose to renew our perspective and reclaim our faith.
And allow His strength and His power to carry and sustain.
And ask for His will to be done.
Everything falls into its rightful place at the sound of His great name.
"I am your Strength and Shield. I plan out each day and have it ready for you, long before you arise from bed. I also provide the strength you need each step of the way. Instead of assessing your energy level and wondering about what's on the road ahead, concentrate on staying in touch with Me. My Power flows freely into you through our open communication. Refuse to waste energy worrying, and you will have strength to spare.
Whenever you start to feel afraid, remember that I am your Shield. But unlike inanimate armor, I am always alert and active. My Presence watches over you continually, protecting you from both known and unknown dangers. Entrust yourself to My watch-care, which is the best security system available. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go."
- Sarah Young, JESUS CALLING
"Salvation is found in no one else,
for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved"
- Acts 4:12.
