Pastor's Devotional


"Then the Lord will provide shade for Mount Zion and all who assemble there. He will provide a canopy of cloud during the day and smoke and flaming fire at night, covering the glorious land.It will be a shelter from daytime heat and a hiding place from storms and rain." (Isaiah 4:5-6)

In 1880 Vernon Charlesworth penned one of the most timeless hymns "A Shelter In The Time of Storm". Here is the first verse and the Refrain:

The Lord’s our Rock, in Him we hide,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
Secure whatever ill betide,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

Refrain: Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A weary land, a weary land;
Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

There are periods in our lives when we want to disconnect from ourselves. These are the days of struggle. It might be illness, the loss of a loved one, the loss of a pet, some bad report we get regarding our self or someone very near to us. These then are the times we need to get into our shelter...Jesus Christ. We need to purposely draw away with our Lord and allow Him to carry out His role as our great physician.

What battle are you facing today? What enemy has been battering your door seeking for you to capitulate and just quit on everything? The time has arrived for you to seek shelter from the storm. The wind, waves, tempest may be too strong for you, but Jesus is your shelter. Draw close to Him and feel His embrace. Allow Him to hold you in His mighty arms and keep the storm from tearing you apart. Stop trying to fight the storm alone and get under your shelter.
