The Lord protects his people, and they can come to him in times of trouble. The Lord helps his people and saves them from the wicked because they run to him.
Do you remember the pictures of people running from the destruction after the attack on the World Trade Center? They were covered in dust and were literally running for their lives.
When trouble comes it is the very human response to run away. Your feet try to get you as far away from the difficulty as you possibly can. But when you become a follower of Jesus Christ your response is still to run when trouble comes, but not away from the trouble. When bad times come, Christians run to God!
If you just run away from the problems you will certainly find yourself running into more problems. There is no real peace in seeking comfort from the world. But when you run to Jesus you can rest in His arms, knowing for certain that nothing can touch you without His permission!
If you are in the middle of turmoil and trouble in your life right now, then stop trying to run away from your problems and turn your heart and mind to Jesus Christ and run to Him! It is there you will find rest and peace and comfort and calm. It is with Jesus that you will find a shelter from the storm and a place where your heart can rest!
"Jesus, show me how today to run to You! Put Your hand in the middle of my back and push me into Your arms! Settle my heart with the peace that comes from resting and leaning on You, my Lord and Savior! And may You be praised forever. Amen."
