Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalm 91:1
Many people around the world are looking for security and warmth today. They look for a place where they can hide, a place where they will not be affected by disaster, misery, hatred, jealousy or anger. I am happy that the Bible teaches us that God is our Refuge and that today Jesus is our Shelter where we are safe.
Jesus promised in Matthew 28:20: ‘And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’ The Bible teaches that we can hide with Jesus when we hear about horrible happenings such as floods, earthquakes, famines, wars, etc. Our life is with Him; whether dead or alive we are safe with Him. It is in Jesus Christ that we can have peace in our hearts. His love dispels every fear from our hearts.
Can you say for sure that your life is safe with God?
Jesus tells us in Luke 21:5-38 about the things to happen just before He returns to gather all those who believe in Him. Jesus says in the verses 25-28: ‘There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.’
Make sure you know today where you are going to when you pass away. Do not miss that wonderful place prepared for us, as we read in Revelation 21:4: ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’
