Peace Is Promised

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!”  That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards.  His huge outstretched arms protect you—under them you’re perfectly safe; his arms fend off all harm.  Fear nothing.

Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.  You’ll stand untouched.

Yes, because God’s your refuge…  Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. He ordered His angels to guard you wherever you go. If you stumble, they’ll catch you…

“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble.  I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me.  Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you…  I’ll give you a long life, and give you my salvation!”
