Unfailing Love

Exodus 15:9-18

Larry Henshaw tells of a time his home was rocked by an earthquake. Daughters Debbie and Carol were locked in their bedroom when their beds slid in front of the door. They were trapped. They panicked and screamed for help. Larry spoke very calmly, “Don’t worry! You’re Henshaws and Henshaws keep cool in a crisis.” Carol’s little voice came from the other side of the door, “Daddy, I think we take after Mommy’s side of the family!”

Actually, we’re all from fear’s side of the family, at one time or another. We fear what people may say or think about us. We fear we won’t be able to make it at college, get married, have enough money for retirement, and we fear death, disease, and disaster!

The Israelites, at least for this time in their wilderness wanderings, were able to cast fear aside and praise the Lord for his greatness and faithfulness. Let our good Lord wrap you in his arms today and whisper into your ear his unfailing love.
