I’m sitting in a hotel room resting from our attempts to get home from our mission trip to New Orleans. The highways are frozen over with ice and we can only travel at 25 to 30 miles per hour, which makes it two days so far, praise God.
While I was putting together tomorrow’s devotion I heard in my spirit these words, “stay safe." So I looked up Psalms 91 in the English Standard Version.
Psalm 91:1-16 (ESV)
1 "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 "I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 "For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
4 "He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 "You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day."
Our mission on this trip carried with it a message to encourage one another by building each other up in our most holy faith, praying in the power of the Holy Spirit. There are lots of believers praying for our safety, as we are praying for yours as well. Saints of God have sent us finances to help pay for hotel rooms and to buy tires for the vans, and I thank you so much for the help.
Tonight, Father, as we dwell in that place that is found only in You, we thank You as You deliver us home safely in Jesus's name. I pray for all of our families that are at home that these storms that have threaten them will be silenced! In Jesus's name. Amen and amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
