That is, the image of Jesus…. We’re praying today for those affected by the recent storm and those still in its path. God’s compassion is being displayed through the actions of many. Scripture tells of God’s mercy enduring forever, which Jesus showed continually; and He is the same yesterday, today, and forever….
“Let those who fear the Lord now say, ‘His mercy endures forever.'” Psalm 118:4
“Offer to God thanksgiving,
And pay your vows to the Most High.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Psalm 50:14-15
We know You are a shelter to those who believe. Firmly, in times of trouble, it’s to You that we cleave.
In the midst of a storm, You’re our shelter and shield. Safety is of the Lord, Your Word has revealed.
If a storm surrounds us, we call for it to cease. When faith takes some battering, we still have Your peace.
In the day of trouble, we’re to call on You, You’ve said. Whenever we may feel afraid, we’ll look, in faith, to You instead.
P. A. Oltrogge
