“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:”
~ Isaiah 59:1 kjv
The first verse in Isaiah 59 is one of my favorites regarding the power of prayer. When we pray we have to realize nothing is too hard for the Lord!
His Almighty Hand can handle it all!
His Almighty Ear can hear it all…every word
that that we utter in prayer!
“But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.” ~ Psalms 94:22
God’s also working on behalf of our best interest.
He’s on my team…
He’s my defender…
Even when all odds are against me or the battle seems sore…or things look utterly hopeless… He’s my refuge!
Let’s take a closer look at the meaning of “refuge“:
1. shelter or protection from danger, trouble, etc.: to take refuge from a storm
2. a place of shelter, protection, or safety
3. anything to which one has recourse for aid, relief, or escape
God is our Shelter, our Protector, our Helper, our Escape, our Relief.
He’s the one that can answer prayer!
Today start praying bigger prayers because your God is bigger than you really realize! Run to your refuge for strength, for safety, for help.
