After an extremely hot humid Texas day yesterday, the skies opened up and delivered much-needed rain last night. As I drove home the lightning continued to light up the sky, and the lightning was close! This morning on my drive in, I noticed a beautiful orange-yellow sun with patches of clouds covering part of it. Everything appeared to be washed clean.

In my reading this morning, I was reminded that the Lord is always in control even when we see the storms. Sometimes if we aren’t spending the time we should with our Lord, He will send storms to get our attention; yet His mercies are new every morning. “O LORD (Jehovah), the God (Elohim) of my salvation (Yeshua), 
I have cried out by day and in the night before You. Let my prayer come before You; Incline Your ear to my cry!” (Ps 88:1-2) 

Jehovah Elohim Yeshua, You are the Lord God of my salvation. You reign from heaven and rule on earth. You rescue those in need and bind up the brokenhearted. You save not only eternally but in time and history. You save me from making wrong choices or going down the wrong path through the wisdom of Your Word. You save me from living a life of misery and regret through the compassion of Your healing forgiveness and grace. You save me from worry knowing that I can trust in You. You save me from confusion when I seek Your truth and kingdom agenda in my life. I praise You because You are Jehovah Elohim Yeshua, the Lord God of my salvation. In the precious name of Jesus, amen.
