Life on this earth is far from easy. It takes great effort and struggle just to stay alive. Think about it…

You have to eat and drink, not just every day, but several times a day to stay healthy.

About 71% of the earth is water and about 57% of the land is uninhabitable.

Many of the earth’s climates are not conducive to life with great extremes of heat and cold. Even the habitable climates require great effort for survival through proper clothing and shelter.

There’s a wide variety of storms and natural disasters with the potential to kill then give way to a beautiful day.

There are germs, invisible to the naked eye, all around us with the potential to wipe out millions.

Most wildlife can easily overcome any man.

Even our bodies must maintain the proper blood pressure, proper temperature, etc. with very little room for deviation.

Our hearts have to continue beating for us to continue living.

LIFE is fragile…frail…and uncertain. God created us to depend on Him. He is our keeper, He is our peace. Only HE sustains our lives!

He encourages us in…

Psalm 121:6,7

“The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil…”
Even though God gave man dominion over the earth, He created us to depend totally on Him.

Never begin the day without praying for His PROVISION, PROTECTION and POWER to make through the day, and STAY ALIVE in this hostile world.

Psalm 121 (NKJV)
121 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
