Isaiah 25:4: For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy
in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast
of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
God is enough for what you lack. It is absolutely amazing that one God can be everything
to all people who will look to Him! God is the answer to every need in every hour
and in every case.
In helplessness, God is your strength. In a storm, God is your refuge. In the heat,
God is your shadow. Isaiah 25 reminds us that God*s supply is always sufficient
for whatever needs you may have. When you are poor, needy, defenseless, and your
supply is insufficient, you need strength. When the storms of life are blasting
you, you need refuge. When the scorching heat of today*s problems and concerns
is bearing down on you, you need shade. You can either look to something else or
someone else, or you can look to God. But who or what can you look to that can
supply every need, every time? Only God can do that! Everything and everyone else
will leave you empty, weak, vulnerable, and exposed.
We serve a God who is all things to all people who have the eyes to see Him. He
is the answer to your every need every time you have need.
For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress,
a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat. . . .*
