Psalm 91:9,10

"If you make the Most High your dwelling--even the Lord, who is my refuge--then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent." NIV

"Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." KJV

What do we do when there is chaos and destruction all around us? Do we respond in anger? Do we run in fear? Do we just freeze and do nothing? If we are living in and walking with the Lord, there is no reason to respond to upheaval with anger, fear, or immobility. We can bloom like the desert flower that finds it's way through the cracks in the dry crusty sand and grows healthy and beautiful. It stands in splendor and confidence that it is glorifying its' Creator in spite of the surrounding circumstances. How much more should we do the same?

Heavenly Father, help us to stand firm, in splendor and confidence when the adversities of life come near us. Fill us with Your Spirit so that we will bloom like the desert flower and bring glory to Your name. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Beautifully said, Dr. Bobbi. It's easy to trust God when everything is going well. Thank you for this encouragement to stand firm when things are not going so well. The desert flower picture is a great illustration.
