Eternally Safe

Take refuge in the One who created everything in love.

Isaiah 41:13

For I am the LORD, your God, who grasp your right hand; It is I who say to you, “Do not fear, I will help you.”

Sometimes it feels like God is absent.

But feelings are deceptive.

Just as we are generally quite unaware of the air that we breathe…it is still there.

So it is with God who is animating all that is.

As Richard Rohr once pointed out, “Both Franciscan John Duns Scotus and Dominican Thomas Aquinas said Deus est Ens, God is Being itself.”

St. Paul put it this way when speaking of how near God is to us: “In him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

It is impossible for God to abandon us…no matter what it may feel like.

So in your time of need…reach out…call out…to the Creator of all.

Then trust that the prophet Isaiah’s words above are indeed the words of God who says, “Do not fear, I will help you.”
