Today's Devotional Thought

A Loving God
Are you in a period of your life where you feel desperate for Jesus?
Today's verse came to me during a point of my life when I was desperate for Jesus. A time when each day seemed dark and hopeless.
Yes, I said hopeless.
I know that as Christians we should live a life full of hope, joy and abundance, but the truth is that there are periods in our life when we get hit with circumstances that are tough, that are beyond our control and are painful. We struggle with how to make it through those days.
So what do we do?
We must go to the One who can help us through. We must go to his Word and search out verses that encourage us. We must find music that speaks to our souls and uplifts us.
Today's verse says so much and in it we discover that our God loves us, that he is that fortress we can run to, a safe haven, that he shields us and protects us. And, my friend, he will deliver us.
He promises that.
So be encouraged today that even in our dark periods we have a deliverer. We have someone who will pull us through and give us hope, give us joy, and give us an abundant life.
