I woke up the other night, full of fears. I can’t believe what’s happening to our world. It’s like the whole planet is turned upside down with tens of millions of people locked in their homes for weeks. The more I thought about Fulton, I was extremely afraid for him. Who’s going to take care of him when the world goes even more crazy? I heard a commentary dealing with nursing homes. It talked about how they are being flooded with very old and sick people. I’ve been having to fight these worries every day and yet, as I turn to God, I find Him faithful.
What does God say to our anxious hearts? “He makes wars to cease throughout the earth; He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; He burns the shields in the fire. “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted over the earth.” The LORD of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah.” Psalm 46:9-11
As for Fulton’s future, God says, “You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, the plague that stalks in darkness, or the calamity that destroys at noon. Though a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, no harm will come near you.” Psalm 91:5-7
How comforting is our God! I wonder what will happen next. Whatever it is, it won’t shake God. He is our refuge.
