"Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem,  so the Lord surrounds His people,  both now and forever." Psalm 125:2

Have you ever felt like things are closing in on you? Have you experienced being disoriented by difficult or challenging circumstances?  The sense of being surrounded by trials, disappointments, or changes can be overwhelming. 

When I learned that I was in need of a major surgery and would require a season of recovery, I felt surrounded by questions and fears.  A diagnosis or other challenging situation can bring uncertainty in the natural. 

But when we are walking with Jesus we are surrounded by something greater than our current circumstances.  The Lord is surrounding what is surrounding us.  Greater is He Who is in us than anything else around us!  His loving care encompasses us and His purposeful plan can be trusted. See Romans 8:28

Shaken but still surrounded!
As the prophet wrote, "The Sovereign Lord is my strength!  He makes me as sure-footed as a deer, able to tread upon the heights." Habakkuk 3:19

Whatever you are facing remember you are surrounded. 
You are not alone, abandoned or alienated. You are His!

"Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He's done.  Then you will experience God's peace..." Philippians 4:6-7 ...because He's got you surrounded!
