Don’t worry, big daddies there
He's there. He cares
Whenever you are filled with worry or pain, anger or hurt, why not recite this poem. Drink in its meaning contemplate who it is that’s doing the talking.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. ..
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Psalm 34:4-10 New International Versions
He will deliver you from your fears.
One time I had some gangsters after me because I refused to allow them to try to bully me and steal from me. They said they were out to kill me. I walked through that small town with complete peace. Every time the gangsters tried something, something mysterious would happen to them and they got hurt not me. Eventually they gave up and left me alone.
He will send angels to camp around you.
You know, when I was tree planting we lived in tents in the forest for months at a time. Many times we had bear problems. Rookies would ask me if I was worried about bears coming into my tent at night while I was sleeping (it did happen quite frequently to others). My reply was: “Nah, I just pray to God to send angles to guard my tent at night and go to peaceful sleep knowing there is the best guardians right outside while I contentedly sleep away.” They thought I was nuts, but I am the one who had a peaceful nights sleep.
They will lack no good thing. In the past few years I have learned to put my complete trust in the Lord, no matter what. Consequently I have always had a comfortable place to live, a full belly (not pigging out mind you. That is gluttony and that is bad in Gods eyes.) and clothes on my back (not the latest trends but who cares what someone else thinks is cool, alls I care about is if it is functional).
Blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Every time I feel hurt by someone’s meanness (saying mean and cruel things to me just to hurt me so they can get their perverted pleasures) or when I am sad or worried, I just talk with my big daddy in Heaven. I feel comforted knowing that no matter what, He loves me, He cares for me and He cares about me.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Nissi (the Lord our banner- He who goes out in front of us in battle) for being the omniscient God who protects us in the no holds barred bloody battle between the evil one and us. Thank you for the times You send angels to protect us in times of danger. In the name of the warrior king, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day.
