Psalms 91:1-7
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.
The Holy Bible, New King James Version, (Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982.

When we see ourselves as created beings and we see God as our creator, we can understand how He can protect us.  But before we know He can protect us, we have to know that He wants to and that He loves us enough to do so.  We must have faith in our mighty God to know that He has the ability and the concern to keep us from danger.  God is our refuse and He is our strength in times of trouble.  It is because of His love for us that God will protect us.  He keeps us safe from the evil that is around us. But God is not as interested in our comfort as much as He is interested in our growing relationship to Him.  His goal is to make us more like Christ, so the protection He gives is in keeping us close to Him.  Sometimes we want protection from the pain of life, but God’s main protection is in keeping us safe in Him. We put our trust in Him to protect our relationship with Him from all of the evil that would separate us from Him.  It is our trust in Him that keeps our relationship with Him safe regardless of our circumstances.  We believe that He cares for us and will keep His promises.  What fear are you facing today that you need to trust that God will keep you safe from?  Make Him your refuge and your shelter and He will keep you from the harm that Satan would have for you.

Have a God Day!
