The weather outside was threatening, and the alert on my cell phone warned about the possibility of flash floods. An unusual number of cars were parked in my neighborhood as parents and others gathered to pick up children at the school bus drop-off point. By the time the bus arrived, it had started to rain. Thatís when I observed a woman exit her car and retrieve an umbrella from the trunk. She walked towards a little girl and made sure the child was shielded from the rain until they returned to the vehicle. What a beautiful ďreal timeĒ picture of parental, protective care that reminded me of the care of our heavenly Father.
The prophet Isaiah forecast punishment for disobedience followed by brighter days for Godís people (Isaiah 40:1-8). The heavenly dispatch from the mountain (v. 9) assured the Israelites of Godís mighty presence and tender care. The good news, then and now, is that because of Godís power and ruling authority, anxious hearts need not fear (vv. 9-10). Included in the announcement was news about the Lordís protection, the kind of protection shepherds provide (v. 11): vulnerable young sheep would find safety in the Shepherdís arms; nursing ewes would be led gently.
In a world where circumstances arenít always easy, such images of safety and care compel us to look confidently to the Lord. Those who trust wholeheartedly in the Lord find security and renewed strength in Him (v. 31).
