I remember tumbling, rolling, being tossed around in the waves of what felt like the angry sea…and then being rescued. Have you ever been rescued from a terrifying situation? Maybe you haven’t had a terrifying experience and experienced a form of rescuing like I just mentioned, but let’s face it: Life can really toss us here and there, placing us in need of a rescuing, right?
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United.
That memory I shared in the beginning happened when I was just 13 years old – a very long time ago, I assure you😊 And though it was years ago, I remember the terror, but even more vividly, I remember the rescuing.
God’s word is like that; it rescues us…from making bad choices, from the bad choices of others; it always rescues in times of our greatest need. His word is truly the life preserver for each and every one of us. It just takes us reaching out – opening it up – and acknowledging it and receiving it.
When someone gives you a gift, do you refuse it or do you extend your hand to take it?
A couple of nights ago, I was finishing up my Bible study – I hadn’t finished it in the morning but have been wanting to get in a nightly habit of taking in His Word as well as in the morning – and I received TWO rescues! Without going into detail about my current situation, thus giving the enemy more credit, suffice it to say I was feeling incredibly overwhelmed with suffering and sadness. It was in this overwhelming wave of struggle that He gave me these two rescuing verses:
Genesis 15:1 (paraphrased as I put my struggle in it) I am your shield, Kim, your exceedingly great reward [for all you are going thru]. And Matthew 10:26 [again paraphrased with my stuff in it] Therefore, do not fear them [the enemy’s schemes and lies] for there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and nothing hidden that will not be known.
Are you in need of a rescuing, my friend? His Word is waiting to just that for you!
