A Prayer for Assurance of God’s Safety
By Keri Eichberger 

“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.” Zephaniah 3:17

I’ve a concern of flying. If you recognize me, you recognize this. Nonetheless, it’s truly gotten leaps and bounds higher through the years as I’ve leaned nearer and nearer to the truths of God’s almighty energy and management and his love that all the time appears out for me. However I nonetheless should battle like loopy to cling to the Lord to permit his sovereign presence to infuse, calm, and luxury my shaky spirit every time I board any plane. And let me inform you, flying definitely isn’t the one state of affairs that unsteadies the sails of my soul.

Final summer season, for instance, I used to be getting ready for a flight throughout the nation to witness my niece get married. Days earlier than, my devotional scripture of the day was Zephaniah 3:17, which begins, “The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.” I knew this reality can be useful to carry close to on my flight, so I jotted it down and marked the verse as a post-it bookmark in my sizzling pink and favourite bible–a “should have” on all air journey. I later opened Zephaniah to mirror on the which means of the phrases as a way of unease started to swell whereas hovering larger and better above the clouds into the clear blue sky.

I wanted to know God was with me. I fastened my give attention to the nice black textual content and imagined my “mighty warrior” proper beside me, saving me, defending me, and surrounding me. I memorized the verse as I customized it time and again in my thoughts: Keri, the LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. With every repetition, the Lord allowed peace to stream and develop inside. I wouldn’t know I’d want the depth of this reality many times within the few days earlier than my return house. However I did. As a result of, amongst a few different unnamed incidents, I used to be confronted with yet one more sudden concern the next day.

On the marriage day, a limo bus picked up a number of of the visitors, myself and my household included, to supply transportation to the ceremony. It was an exquisite mountainous Colorado drive till the bus took a pointy flip onto a one-lane, windy, gravel highway to go a closing steep 2000 ft as much as the height the place the occasion would happen. You’d should have been there to know the extent of the extraordinary drop-offs and sharp turns the outsized automobile would maneuver forwards and backwards precisely eleven life-threatening (seeming) instances. However belief me, it was downright scary. Everybody felt it. And I keep in mind closing my eyes after surviving the primary flip, grateful for the verse I had burned in my mind for such an sudden time as this.

As soon as once more, I wanted to know God was with me. And once more, I pictured him subsequent to me. I noticed our mighty, mighty warrior wrapped round me and my family members, with safety that might you should definitely maintain every soul with peace it doesn’t matter what occurred. You would possibly suppose I’m an enormous wimp, or perhaps this story triggered reminiscences of fearful circumstances you’ve been positioned in. However I do know you have got fears, too.

Is there one thing right now that has you stirred up with fearful emotions or consumed with concern, leaving you determined for assurance of God’s almighty safety? What’s it? Are you scared of a close to or long-term consequence? Possibly coping with a prognosis, a dangerous process, or a liked one is. I understand how you’re feeling. And also you so badly need to know that God has this, has you. That he’ll look after you, shield you, or whoever it’s you’re involved for.

Can I remind you that the Lord is with you? That he’s oh so mightily answerable for each element. The Phrase tells us not even one sparrow will fall to the bottom outdoors of the Father’s care. And that we shouldn’t be afraid as a result of we’re of a lot extra worth than the sparrows (Matthew 10:29-31). He’s watching each transfer made round you, and he won’t let go of one in every of his youngsters for a break up second. You’re all the time, all the time, all the time within the Father’s excellent care. He is the mighty warrior who saves.

I pray this provides you consolation as you repeat this fear-fighting reality right now or tomorrow within the midst of your fragile moments and fears. The Lord holds you and hovers over you—you, me, and all of those that love him.

Let’s pray:

Father God, I’ve so many worries, cares, and issues. Many I don’t even acknowledge as they’ve turn out to be so widespread and threaded via every day of my life. And I’ve fears, too. Some small and a few actually large at instances that attempt to overtake me. However you’re my mighty Savior. At all times with me. Assist me do not forget that not one element of my life, or the lives of these I really like, is out of your sovereign love and management. I’m so grateful you have got me. Due to what the Bible tells me. I may be positive of your fixed safety. And I may be positive your good love won’t ever ever depart me. Oh, how blessed I’m by you. Might I stay assured in your unfailing Phrase. In your trustworthy title, Jesus, I pray, amen.
