But did you know that God not only gives physical protection (from robbers, accidents, etc.), but God also gives us all sorts of protection? God gives us spiritual protection by keeping us from falling into evil thoughts or actions. God also gives us emotional protection by comforting us when we feel hurt, scared, or mad. God gives mental protection by blocking things from our mind that shouldn't be there (like worry).
God loves to protect us because God loves us. He wants what is best for us and part of that is protection.
However, God also requires that we learn to also protect ourselves--using our human responsibility. That means being prepared by wearing our seatbelt when we get in the car, by reading our Bible and praying, or by not thinking about things that will cause us mental stress.
God is bigger than our fears and He is there to protect us. He gave us the best protection by sending Jesus down to save us from our sins. He protected us from the very thing that would give us ultimate harm.
How do you see God protecting you today?
Until next time,
