GOD PAUSE: I've been blessed over the years to hear and sit at the feet of powerful, godly preachers. And their messages and lives have had a huge impact on how I live today. I remember Dr. B. R. Lakin giving the illustration of Jesus holding us in his cupped hands, protecting and caring for us when the enemy slings his mud against us. I was reminded of that today when I read in Psalm 31:15 “My life, my every moment, my destiny --- it's all in your hands. So I know you can deliver me.” Dear Papa, you do hold me and my friend in your hands today. And every day. Every moment even. There's nothing the enemy can do to change that. What security we have in your loving care. Amen and amen.
