Names of God – Mon – 22-11-28

Aren’t family members wonderful? Oh, ok. I know that many people have some terrible people in their family. Let me rephrase. Aren’t good family members wonderful? I’m sure you agree.

Do you have anyone in your family who is dependable? You know, they’re always there when you need them. I can say that about my father, father-in-law and about many of the others in my family. One is my brother-in-law, Roger. Years ago, I faced a discouraging time in my job. We picked up the land line – see, I told you it was many years ago – We picked up the land line and called Roger and Mary. They told us to come on down. So, we drove 10 hours to spend a little time with family. I’ve seen Roger care for others in his family as well, including his parents and our father-in-law.

God is also always there when we need him. In fact, he is even better than that. He is present in  ways no human being can be. Psalms 46:1-3 says, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” (NIV)

Even in the worst disaster we can imagine or experience, God is ever present to help us.
