“He rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards.”
Those words stood out to me in the verse below.
We have to leave what is DEAD and BURIED in it’s grave and stop digging through dried up bones trying to bring them to life. God has rescued me from the cemetery of things that he has deemed dead and yet I can find myself going back trying to fix or resuscitate dead relationships, dead ministries and dead friendships. If God closes a door stop beating on it, whatever is behind it is what he has saved you from.
Paul said, “Leaving that which is behind you and moving forward!” I think it’s better to leave the business of the dead to the dead and leave the past to the past… today all things are new in Christ ❤
Verse of the Day ~ March 22, 2018
You who sit down in the High God’s presence, spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow, Say this: “ GOD, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!” That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards. His huge outstretched arms protect you— under them you’re perfectly safe; his arms fend off all harm. Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, Not disease that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high noon. Even though others succumb all around, drop like flies right and left, no harm will even graze you. You’ll stand untouched, watch it all from a distance, watch the wicked turn into corpses. Yes, because GOD’s your refuge, the High God your very own home, Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go. If you stumble, they’ll catch you; their job is to keep you from falling. You’ll walk unharmed among lions and snakes, and kick young lions and serpents from the path.
