4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

“Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.”
God knows that we are only flesh and blood, and He also knows just how much we can take.
For this reason, when we cry out to Him in unfavorable circumstances, He pitieth us with mercy.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Today if ye will hear his voice.”Jesus is the Good Shepherd, and we are sheep of His pasture.
As a child of God, you can rest assured that the good Shepherd (Jesus Christ) will never leave your side.
He is with you now, you will be with you in the operation room, and He will be with you for a quick recovery and healing after surgery.
“For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endureth to all generations.”
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
Sometimes when we find ourselves in affliction, it can be our own doing. But even then, God has made grace available so that we can obtain mercy.
Also, as with Job, we may find ourselves in affliction not because of our sins. In this case, there is grace available so that we may find help in times of need.
“2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.”
May everything wonderful that God has done for you find expression in your life today. Amen
“For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.”
Don’t allow your feeling of fear, pain in your body, and the devil to cheat you out of God’s promises.
Confess God’s promises of mercy, love, deliverance, and favor over your life and health.
“The LORD is gracious and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”
