For Those Who Hurt
You may be feeling panic over an unforeseen calamity that is threatening to push you over the edge. Rather than fall into the pit of despair, stand upon the Rock. You need something solid to lean upon. Say with the psalmist David, The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge (Psalm 18:2). The Lord has promised to be there for you as your security and place of rest if you trust in Him. He will hold you up and sustain you, no matter what happens. He is able, for He alone is God!
