This card celebrates the sweet and abundant blessings we have in the Lord through the Lord Jesus Christ in whom all of God’s promises to provide for His children, now and for eternity, are yes and amen!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! But what does it mean to take refuge in the Lord? Refuge in the Lord is found only in the Lord Jesus Christ. “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12) Throughout Scripture, the Lord promises to deliver all who will call upon Him, all who will turn from their sins and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.”
I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.” (v4)
And for those who are the redeemed, this Psalm is a great reminder of the rich blessings that are ours in Christ: He delivers us from our fears, from condemnation, from the guilt and power of sin, from the wrath of the Father. Instead He daily loads us with the benefits of salvation, including adoption into the family of God, eternal life, an inheritance in heaven, sweet fellowship with the saints, and so much more!
LAYERS OF COLOR FAITH ART FRIDAY:
What a blessing it was to be asked by sweet Laura of Layers of Color Art Stamps to prepare a project and post for this week's Faith Art Friday blog feature. Laura and her entire design team are gifted artists who love the Lord and seek first His glory and the spread of His kingdom. If you haven't visited the Layers of Color blog, or their website, please consider this your invitation, and don't forget that each and every Friday is "Faith Art Friday" at Layers of Color.
You are in my prayers: May you also taste the goodness of the Lord in His provision of a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ!
