Words from the Heart for Monday June 14th, 2021
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
Psalm 91:14-16 (NLT)
The Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Centre is Canada’s only dedicated marine mammal rescue facility and one of the largest rescue facilities in the world. Their current facilities allow for on-site rehabilitation of seals, sea lions, sea otters, sea turtles and small cetaceans, such as harbour porpoise. They are also equipped to respond to off-site marine mammal emergencies, including disentangling sea lions in the wild. Each year, their rescue program saves over 100 marine mammals and rehabilitates them for release back into their natural habitat.
The old western movies were fun to watch because just as all seemed lost, the cavalry would come riding over the hilltop to save the day. You just knew all would be well, and there would be a happy ending. The rescuers were on their way. The Bible speaks of God’s willingness to be our rescuer, our cavalry, when we need Him to be. It’s a great promise and it’s found in Psalm 91:14-16: “The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” The next time you are feeling overwhelmed, claim this promise. The next time you are being attacked, or are feeling like all hope is lost, the heavenly rescuer, the eternal cavalry, is on its way. It is never late, for the Rescuer has no enemy greater than He. He has promised you salvation, both for your soul and out of the current situation in which you find yourself. Reach out in faith.
These have been words from the heart.
