Good morning! My father is and always will be my hero! Growing up, he was always a constant in my life. He never missed a game and rarely ever missed a practice. Not only was he a great dad to me, he always took up time with my buddies that didn’t have a dad. Growing up, we had a set of concrete weights with a medal bar. Me and my brother would mess around with them in the yard. I remember load up the bar with 110 lbs. and trying to dead lift it. Man, we were getting it done! It was all I could do to pull that weight to my waist. Then my dad showed up and said, “I can pick that up with one hand over my head.” There was no way! So, he bent over and grabbed that long bar with 110 lbs of concrete weight. Then he let out a loud grunt and threw that weight over his head! At that point in my life, I pictured him as Super Man. You see, my dad, had the guns!💪 As a child, when I was with my dad, I feared nothing. I knew he was watching over me and I knew he would protect me no matter what. I was in the presence of Super Man.
While we are living life in a world of uncertainty, we tend to walk in fear. Businesses are closing their doors, people are losing their jobs, and you are wondering will I get the virus. Some many negative thoughts are running through own minds. The author of Psalm 91 speaks of a place of security that I want to share with you this morning. Psalm 91:1-4 says, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say if the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”
I want to encourage you today to sit down in the presence of the Mighty God, and hand Him your worries and fears. Say this; “God you are my refuge, I trust in you and I’m safe. Know this, he recuse us from hidden traps, shields us from deadly hazards. His huge outstretched arms protect you! Under them you are perfectly safe. Our Heavenly Father has the “Big Guns.” Fear Nothing while you are walking in the presence of God. Stay positive and turn your attention to the God of the universe! God bless!
