When we ignore our Father’s warnings, we forfeit the safety of His shore and plunge into the ocean of harm’s way: the undertow of over-commitment, the current of wrong choices, and the rising tide of moral danger. Perhaps that’s where you are right now. If so, there is hope. You only have to call out to God for help and He will pull you safely to shore. David cried out, “Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me” (Psalm 31:2) and “Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters” (Psalm 144:7).
“But, Sharon,” you might say, “you don’t know how far I’ve fallen. You don’t know what a mess I’ve made of my life.”
You are right. I don’t know. But God doesand there is no place that you can go where His arm is too short to reach down and save you. That’s a promise.
Call out to Him today. He’s waiting.
