Meditations for Those Facing Hurricane Irma

“Butterflies cover more ground, but bees gather more honey. That’s because the butterfly just flies over the flowers, whereas the bee lands on each one and stays there long enough to extract the nectar. That’s the difference between merely reading your Bible for a few hurried minutes, and taking time to meditate on what you are reading.”

In my study of Psalms, I found:

Psalms 139:7-12, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast….even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You.” New International Version

* * * * * * *

“There is no hiding from God…the heavens…the depths. The two vertical extremes. Wings of the dawn…far side of the sea. The two horizontal extremes: east and west (the sea is the Mediterranean)….Guide me…hold me fast. to indicate God’s solicitous supervision,…Just as the whole creation offers no hiding place (vv. 8-9), neither does the darkness of night…” New International Version Study Bible Notes

Cross reference verses:

Amos 9:2, “Though they dig down to the depths below, from there My hand will take them. Though they climb up to the heavens above, from there I will bring them down.” New International Version

* * * * * * *

Psalms 108:6, “Save us and help us with Your right hand, that those You love may be delivered.” New International Version

* * * * * * *

Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” New International Version

* * * * * * *

Psalms 23:1, 4, “The Lord is my shepherd; I lack nothing…Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” New International Version

* * * * * * *

“Rod. Instrument of authority…used also by shepherds for counting, guiding, rescuing and protecting sheep. Staff. Instrument of support.” New International Version Study Bible Notes

We pray for those in the path of Hurricane Irma. We know God has already sent the answer, see Daniel 10:12, 13.

Daniel 10:19, “He said, ‘O Man, greatly beloved, do not fear. Peace be unto you. Be strong and courageous!’ ” Modern English Version
