Our Rescuer

Do you ever just need to be rescued?? I know I have had those days many many times. I have had to CLING to the cross, begging God to simply rescue me. 

Are you in that season right now? Do you need to know how God feels about you even when those around you tell you that you aren't worth it?? Do you need to remember that there is someone who is for you? That there is someone who not only loves to rescue his children, but has all power and authority to actually pull us out of our deepest darkest places and make a beautiful masterpiece out of our most broken pieces?! 
I think, the hardest faith journey is when the next moves are completely out of our control, when we have to have faith that God can change someone else, like our spouse. We don't get to surrender for them, or turn to the Lord for them, or repent, or recognize the truth FOR THEM!!! Isn't it so frustrating!!!??? My most fervent prayers to be rescued have usually come from a place of needing God to move in my husband as much as I need him to move in me. 
If you are in that place today, where you are having to have GREAT faith for God to do a work in someone that you love, take comfort in what the Lord says in Psalm 91. This message isn't just for that person that you are praying for....it is for YOU! He wants you to know that he is on your side, and he is fighting for you!
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”.........
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will reward him
    and show him my salvation.

Take comfort in this!! God hears your prayers! He loves to rescue his children. There is NOTHING that he can't protect you from. There is NOTHING he can't fix, NOTHING he doesn't see, and he LACKS NOTHING! All power is his and He always moves on your behalf with HONOR, LOVE, and A GENTLE HEART that is for your marriage, your family, and your great future that is full of his great purposes!!!
