The Journey with Ron Moore

Lifted to Safety | Job 5:10-11

Job 5:10-11
He provides rain for the earth; he sends water on the countryside. The lowly he sets on high, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.

Maybe you have lost a loved one. Maybe you have lost your health. Maybe you have relocated and left good friends behind. Maybe the love of your life has left you behind. Grief is the response to the different forms of loss. While it feels foreign, it is a normal and expected response. Moving through mourning is a process that can make progress only when our eyes are on the Lord.

Look around you and see the work of God. He provides the needed water for plants and crops and the flowers highlighting the countryside. If he cares that much for the plants, how much more does he care for you!

Grief is natural, but God responds to us in a supernatural way. He never leaves us alone. He never abandons us. He gives us what we need right when we need it. He meets us right where we are, but doesn’t leave us there. He reaches down to those feeling low and lifts them up. He embraces those who are mourning and brings them to safety. Look up! He is reaching out to you!

Father, someone reading this is very low. Please lift them up. Someone else reading this is in the pit of grief. Please lift them to safety. Please do your supernatural work. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
