I sat down at my desk this morning at dark-thirty o’clock. Seriously, no one is up at this hour but me. It’s part of my insomnia . . . which is a different blog for a different day.
When I sat down, it was with a very sad and heavy heart. I have been involved in a situation over the last several months–the details of which are not important for purposes of this blog. Suffice it to say, it’s not been pretty and I learned last night the situation has gone from bad to worse to complete deterioration. During these months, I have relied on Scripture verses like:
” God is my shield; he will defend me. He saves those whose hearts and lives are true and right.” (Psalm 7:10)
“He is my lawyer and defender, and he will rescue me from your power!” (I Samuel 24:15)
“Jehovah himself is caring for you! He is your defender.” (Psalm 121:5)
(All scripture from the Amplified Bible)
As I sat here, sorting through some papers, Aaron Shust’s song, “No One Higher” began playing on my computer. I had not turned on iTunes, I had not turned on Windows Media. I had not turned on Pandora. I hadn’t touched anything, yet this song began to play. And I realized that how the song started doesn’t really matter. What matters is this was God’s way of saying that He is still my defender, and there is no one higher or greater than He is. Selah.
