RBC ministries compilation theme for this editionof Our Daily Bread', "Great is Thy Faithfulness," reminds readers of God's never-ending faithfulness to all generations.

A year's worth of 365 one-page devotions, by authors we all know and follow such as Yancey, Branon, DeHaan and Roper, offer true-life stories that encourage personal application of Scripture. Each devotion affirms, "Before God can work through you, He must work in you."

Branon who wrote "Dial 91:1" for January 8th relates the story of a kidnapped woman who cleverly dialed 911 on her cell phone then left the line open. While she answered hijacker's questions, the police overheard answers that led to her rescue.

The author points out not all crises and "spiritual danger" can be dealt with by dialing for physical help. Sometimes such instances require spiritual help and "divine assistance" that he finds in Psalm 91:1. "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

This comforting Scripture affirms God is in control, He cares for each of His children and answers prayers as we find "shelter" and trust our fears and crisis to Him. "We need not fear life's dark shadows when we abide under the shadow of God's wings," writes Branon.
