Isaiah 59:19 “So shall they fear the Name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. WHEN THE ENEMY SHALL COME IN LIKE A FLOOD, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” Psalm 37:39-40 “But THE SALVATION OF THE RIGHTEOUS is of the LORD: HE IS THEIR STRENGTH IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE. And the LORD shall help them, and DELIVER THEM: HE SHALL DELIVER THEM FROM THE WICKED, and save them, because they trust in Him.” Psalm 121:4-5 Behold, HE THAT KEEPETH ISRAEL SHALL NEITHER SLUMBER NOR SLEEP.

The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.” Isaiah 43:2 “WHEN THOU PASSESTH THROUGH THE WATERS, I WILL BE WITH THEE; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Matthew 28:20 “And LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Life is full of emergencies. JESUS said sufficient for everyday are the evil thereof. Matthew 6:34. Everyday carries its unanticipated emergencies and challenges. No matter who you are, we all face challenges that are characteristics of this world. We face daily challenges that require our special attention and positive responses. These emergencies may come in our finances, businesses, health, family, careers, relationships, investments, etc. The good news is that no matter what we face in life, God is always there with us. He has sworn never to leave us nor forsake us or allow us to wallow in untold devastation.

Jehovah God that watches over you never slumbers or sleeps. The Scripture is replete with God’s abiding presence and provision in the time of emergencies. On their way to the region of the Gadarenes, JESUS and His disciples suddenly faced a very heavy storm. It was an emergency situation for JESUS and His disciples. When the storm arose, JESUS arose and silenced the storm. The Israelites were pursued by the Egyptians seeking to destroy them at the Bank of the Red Sea. It was an emergency situation. God came to the aid of His people and the Egyptians were drawn and defeated. Paul and Silas were thrown into prison for doing God’s work. As they prayed and sang praises to God, they received emergency intervention of the Almighty God. JESUS faced an emergency situation, where He had to feed thousands of people in a desert place. God’s emergency provision took care of those in the wilderness through the five loaves and two fishes provided by a young boy. It is quite clear from the Word of God that whenever we face an emergency situation, there is always an emergency intervention of the Almighty God.

GOD’S PROVIDENCE IS ALWAYS THERE AND AVAILABLE TO MEET UP WITH THE EXIGENCIES OF LIFE. God always makes provision available ever before the need arises – JEHOVAH JIREH Genesis 22:14 “And Abraham called the NAME OF THAT PLACE JEHOVAH JIREH: In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.” God did not abandon Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego in the time of emergency crisis, when they were thrown into the furnace of fire. God went into the furnace of fire with them and extricated them. (Daniel 3). God did not also abandon Daniel in the lion’s den; he was supernaturally preserved from destruction.
God’s emergency provision will always settle the issues of your life.
