Matthew 9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be made whole.

You may not be able to depend on people to stay with you through the storm to comfort and help you in your time of distress. You might even lose some things or suffer damages in the process, however be of good courage. You have prepared in advance for the storm that has come upon you through prayer, fasting, studying the word, and obedience. Now, sit back and relax, knowing God is there to keep you and comfort you with His strength, power, provision, and never ending love!
Deuteronomy 31:6 (KJV)
6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Deuteronomy 31:8 (KJV)
8 And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.
24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.
25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
Security is defined in Webster as freedom from danger, safety, freedom from fear or anxiety, and freedom from want or deprivation. In the Word of God, we find many promises from God to fulfill all of these needs in our lives and more!
In his arms, we can feel protected and sure knowing that He will take care of us, for He has already given us the greatest gift; freedom from sin by His ultimate sacrifice of dying on the cross. In Psalms 91:1 it is declared “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. ” What a wonderful revelation it is to find that all we need is available through God, and can be obtained, according to His will and purpose, by simply asking in faith.
It is also declared that God is a refuge and fortress, a deliverer, a cover, and a shield and buckler for the just man. In Him we can find peace, provision, prosperity, and protection. Praise God for being our shelter in the storm and our strength from day to day for He is truly worthy to be praised!
Words To Stand On…
For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Walk It Out…
