Camping With the Angels

 

Psa 34:5  They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

Psa 34:6  This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

Psa 34:7  The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

     We serve a Wonderful God!!  It never ceases to amaze me how much He loves me and cares for me.  It also is amazing to me how such an  Awesome God really cares about me and what I go through.  Today, know that God really, really, really, really, loves you and cares about what burdens you carry, and the things that cause you sorrow!

The next verse in this chapter (Vs. 7) goes on to show one of the ways God “saved him out of all his troubles”.  Growing up, I was never the biggest kid in school, church, or the neighborhood where I played.  I am the youngest of 5 children!  Why does it matter that I was small growing up and the fact that I was the youngest of 5?  If you are the youngest you already know.  If you are not, then this explanation is for you:

I have 2 older brothers, and 2 older sisters.  While I was accused of being “babied” or “spoiled”, the sad reality was that I was the WWF wrestling victim growing up.  As my brothers watched the “very real” wrestling show, they would see new moves and submission holds that they had to try on me!  I often heard these words from my brothers, “Hey CW, come here.  I want to try out something.”  You don’t have to be smart to know that when I heard those words, I started running!  Then there is my big sister that would bully me…until I big enough to not let it happen (I finally reached that point last year…ha ha).  OK, so what am trying to say?

A life saving truth finally dawned on me; when I run, run to mom or dad.  It even occurred to me to make friends with the biggest, meanest guy at church or school.  This was my survival mechanism.  Spiritually, I already have the “friend that sticketh closer than a brother!”  I need to run to my Heavenly Father, he is All Powerful!  And He wrote verse 7 for a lot of people, but especially for me.  I need the Angel to camp round about me.  He will not only protect me, but deliver me.

Today, if you have not yet cried out to God, do it now.  He will send an Angel to protect and deliver you!  What is it in your life that you need deliverance and protection from?  Is anything too hard for God?

Jer 32:17  Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:

Jer 32:27  Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

So what are you waiting for?  Cry out to God, He Will save YOU!  He will send His Angel to help!
