On September 11, 2001, I busily did a Beth Moore Bible Study. In the study material she encouraged us to memorize Psalm 27:1 “The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?” I spent time that morning memorizing that Scripture.
Later that morning I went for a doctor’s appointment. It was there that I heard about airplanes flying into the World Trade Center. During that horrific disaster, I was buoyed by the assurance that God was my Protector. I also realized that He had led me to that Scripture ahead of time to assure me that He will take care of me. He knew I needed that Scripture for that day. How gracious and good God is!
Prayer point: Please pray for God to speak His peace that passes understanding to our troubled hearts.
Today’s Reading: 1 Peter 5:10-11
