Last week, the world watched helplessly as religious fanatics attacked innocent civilians in Mumbai, India. The media reports that over 160 innocent people were killed while over 300 people were injured in carefully planned and sustained attacks on selected targets. The targets were mainly places of interest to foreign tourists like Americans and Europeans. It is also reported that some of the terrorists asked specifically for American and British visitors. This is an extremely sad and sorry story especially for those innocent lives suddenly cut short. Life is precious and should never be wasted. Please join me this morning to condemn this atrocity and to pray for the people of Mumbai and the rest of India, for those affected, directly or indirectly, by this wickedness. May God heal, comfort and restore all affected!
~ A word for your week ~ Pro 19:10
Beloved, our text this week tells us that the name of our good Lord is a strong tower and the righteous run into it and they are safe. This means that safety is only guaranteed when we make the name of the Lord our hiding place. It also means that it is only in the name of the Lord we have real safety. True safety is not in man-made structures and systems; they are vulnerable to failures and can be breached by man, as we saw in Mumbai. But when the name of the Lord is your safety net, who can breach your strong tower? This is why David says in Ps 27:1 that “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?” Depraved religious terrorists maybe running amok around the world but if the name of the Lord is your strong tower, then, you are safe!
~ Prophetic blast ~
As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that…
Your week shall be one of peace, ease and divine order!
The Lord shall guard you and all that belongs to you!
No weapon of man or the enemy formed against you shall prosper or succeed against you!
As you journey through life, may the Lord go before you to make straight every crooked place!
May your days be days following His leading and guidance!
You shall be blessed and distinguished among many!
Have a great week!
