Psalms 32:7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and
surround me with songs of deliverance.

When I pray through my prayer list and think about all the situations of
people in need, there certainly does not seem to be any protection for
anyone. A friend and I were discussing whether we would go through chemo if
a cancer situation warranted it. What kind of protection is God giving if
you, and all the other people I pray for, have to suffer? One kind of
protection that God brings in the middle of trouble is the numbness. The
numbness is form of protection that is very strong and in many cases even
makes people feel guilty. When you are besieged on every side, and the
darkness is closing in on you, and it appears there is no hope, then God
will provide you with a cover of numbness. You may reach a point in your
trouble where you have been so beaten up that you cannot feel much anymore.
A human being can only take so much. It is God's protection that makes us
quit feeling pain when the blows of life have pounded us into the ground.
God's protection makes us numb to many situations in our lives. God makes us
feel numb so we can go on. He makes us feel numb so we can be strong for
others and for His work here on Earth. Instead of being what you may
perceive as a curse, God has given you a blessing in the numbness. pk
May His Grace and Love Be With You,
