Preserve me, O God, for the storm is raging

“Preserve me, O God, for in You I have put my trust.” ~ Psalm 16:1, NKJV

The Lord keeps you from all harm
    and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
    both now and forever.” ~ Psalm 121:7-8, NLT

“You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah” ~ Psalm 32:7, NKJV

I Know You Will Preserve Me, O God

Lord, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but You have promised to deliver us out of them all. There are wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, and floods. Violence in our streets, and despair in our hearts. Preserve me O God, for the storm is raging.

My way is not hidden from You. You are El Roi the God who sees me and knows all about it. You are the Creator of heaven and earth, the Everlasting God. You never grow weary, You never slumber. I am safe in Your arms.

And I am so thankful. Lord, You know I like to know what, when, where, how, and why — I am not Your spontaneous girl. So these uncertain days with an unknown future rattle me.

And yet … yet You are my Sure Place. You are my constant. You are my peace.

For You are faithful.

Preserve me, O God. Watch over me … my family. Keep us safe from the enemy assaults.

Preserve me, O God and I will tell of Your goodness all the days of my life. I will take Your light into the darkness, Your love and forgiveness into a hurting world.

I Am So Thankful for You, Lord

I will not be dismayed for You are my God. You will strengthen me all the days of my life. Bless You, Lord. I am so thankful for You.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen — let it be so
