Like the Fire-fighter carrying a small child out of a flame-engulfed building, the tender mercies of the Lord carry us in mighty arms. He delivers us from our fear, our loneliness, our pain and our sins.
Deliverance from the fire that threatens to consume us is the greatest gift of all. The Lord fortifies and delivers us if we take time out of our busy lives and give our lives over to Him who holds the power to deliver us from the buffetings of the adversary. He is the light and we can choose to follow Him from the darkness, safely into the light of his love. The joy is in the surrender of that moment of dedication.
He is my ‘Fire-fighter’ and I am the child whose tears of gratitude course down a hot cheek as I’m carried to safety in the middle of the darkest night of my life. His tender mercies are there for all of us. All we have to do is ask.
