The Lord My Shepherd

I find it no conincidence that I post about warnings and the enemy starts. Yesterday evening a very dear friend of mine was robbed outside the grocery store. She is fine physically, but her purse was stolen (Coach bag at that) with her wallet, checkbook, cellphone, everything inside. Then today there was a group of young boys that I didn't recognize walking down my street, going between houses, just looking suspicious. I call the police and they "disappear" and at last check were nowhere to be found.

So I got my Word out and started to just claim me some promises from my Jehovah-raah. Maybe they'll help you today too.

"My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress. I will never be shaken." Ps 62:1-2 Think about those words. God is my fortress. The Creator of the galaxies is around me, protecting me, guarding me. Then I will never be shaken. When my car is broken into, I will never be shaken. When my friend is robbed, I will never be shaken. When suspicious people are lurking, I will never be shaken.

Now it may seem easy to say those words but believing it down in my heart...well that's another story. Fortunately, the Lord reminded me of my time with Him at the beach when He gave me Mark 5:36. (Jesus said) "Don't be afraid; just believe." So today I choose to believe. I choose not to sit locked up in my house in fear.

I choose to "say with confidence, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?'" Heb 13:6

Thank you Jehovah-raah for taking care of this lost sheep today. Thank you for surrounding me with your Presence and for being my Fortress. I choose to believe Your Word and not to live in fear. Thank you for protecting me and my family. I love you Father. You are worthy to be praised!!!
