Daily Devotional – 4/8/14 “Safe in His arms!”

You’re wondering why you can’t sleep at night, why you can’t get any comfort, why you can’t feel any love or why you can’t seem to find rest; well it might be because you’re in the wrong arms. Yea, I know his or her arms may make you feel good for a moment but baby, I’ve come to know this Man whose arms can rock me to sleep, make me feel loved and give me comfort on my worse day and He isn’t even in the same room. His arms pull me up when I’ve sunken to my lowest point. His arms catch me when I’m slipping down that mountainside I’ve been trying to climb. His arms reach over and grab me when I’ve stepped off the cliff of life. Oh, His arms wrap me up and protect me when man is doing me wrong. His arms provide protection when my storm is raging, sunscreen when the sun gets too hot and healing for the scars on my knees when folk knock me down. Oh, His arms … His arms … His arms make me feel safe. When all hell is breaking loose, there’s safety in His arms. When the death angel shows up, there’s comfort in His arms. When your heart is broken, there’s love in His arms. When man attacks you, there’s safety in His arms. A song says, “Because the Lord is my shepherd, I have everything I need. He lets me rest in the meadows grass and He leads me besides the quiet stream. He restores my failing health and helps me to do what honors Him the most; that’s why I’m safe, that’s why I’m safe, that’s why I’m safe … Safe in His arms. When the storm of life is raging and the billows roll; so glad He shall hide me safe in His arms” Grandma says there aren’t any better arms to be in. Momma says when you’ve tried everybody else try God. Pastor says can’t nobody do me like the Lord. The bible says in Deuteronomy 33:27, “The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you. He drives out the enemy before you; he cries out, ‘Destroy them!” Yes, I’ve found everything I need in His arms because there is where I am safe! When everything else has failed you, try Him. You may still have momma but she can’t do you like God can. You may still have daddy but even he can’t love you like God can! Grandma can pray but she can’t fix it like God can. Pastor can even preach but he can’t save you like God can. Oh, when you’re tired of searching, God’s arms are outstretched for you because Psalm 91:1 says, “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty,” and Psalm 119:114 says, “You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.” Safe in His arms!
