No storm will leave you unprotected.

He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me.
2 Samuel 22:20 New Living Translation


Between the towns of Salida and Cotopaxi in Colorado, there is a large cattle ranch in a valley located behind a forest. This cabin sits in the middle of sparse grassland. You seldom see anyone for miles. Then there is this cabin. No one lives there, but during a fierce winter storm, when ranchers are working to get food to their cattle in the snow, it is a place of shelter. It is protection from a sudden blizzard that can blind the path back to the ranch and threaten life.

Just as a rancher would brave any weather to save their cattle, so God promises that He will be your place of safety no matter what storms of life you face. He will always rescue you because He delights in you! That doesn’t mean all the hard times will disappear, but he promises to walk with you. He WILL lead you to safety through each one.

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.
Psalm 18:2 New Living Translation
