><> I'd Rather Have Jesus and One Angel, than a Fully Armed Military Regiment! <><
Here's this month's Trail Mix. As we travel the Narrow Path [Matthew 7:13-14] we often grow weary and need spiritual nourishment to sustain us and keep us moving forward! I try to provide some nourishment monthly, and I pray this blesses, edifies and lifts your spirit!
Last night, I went to Burger King to get our dinner. I noticed the parking lot lights were not working, and it was eerily dark! As I left the car and headed to the door, a menacing looking young man, cam quickly out of the darkness toward me. Thinking he wanted to ask for some money, I hurried into the store. However, that didn't stop him, as he followed me into BK and walked around the store, as if he was casing it. Even the manager, after she knew he wasn't with me, became concerned, as they just had a customer beaten and robbed five days earlier!
The manager instructed the employees to keep an eye on her and me, as she walked me back out to the car. I couldn't help but notice the young man, still lurking in the darkness of the lot, like a hungry animal waiting to pounce.
I won't lie and say that I wasn't concerned, because when the short hairs on the back of my neck stand up and do everything but say the "Pledge of Allegiance" it is a sign from my spirit that something is a miss! Still, with Jesus, I always feel safe, and while I felt the guy glaring at me as he walked around the inside of the store, I just remembered this promise from Psalms 91:7-16, and claimed these words,
"A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come ear you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands, they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore, I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life, I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."
Hang tough for Jesus, children, He hung tough for us!
