It’s easy to go through life feeling surrounded. Surrounded by dangers. Surrounded by pressures. Surrounded by enemies. Surrounded by unrealistic expectations. Surrounded. That’s not a good feeling! It’s overwhelming. It’s draining.
Here’s the truth: You are surrounded—in a totally different way! Listen to God’s promise: “As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore” (Psalm 125:2). No matter what dangers and pressures and fears surround you, there’s another layer that you can’t see: God surrounds you. Like mountains surround a city, God surrounds his people with his love and forgiveness and strength. Think about this: How often do mountains move or change or leave? Never! What a great picture for our God! As you go through your life, know that you are always surrounded—surrounded by God’s grace.
