Acts 18:10: For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you.”
Body guards, police, the army, all of these groups have a reputation for protection and security. But as humans in a dangerous world it can be easy to be afraid because of how dangerous our surroundings are. When violent people or people who we know want to hurt us arr close by, it is natural to want some security.
But the challenge for us is where to find that security. Some people may consider carrying a weapon or hanging around with people who can protect them, and others may simply choose to hide. But the verse for today says that God will protect us, and the question for today is do we believe it?
If we heard we would be given a 50,000 volt Taser and a bullet proof vest we probably would feel pretty safe but the truth is that only God can truly offer protection. We are told that it is natural to have fear but let’s remember that as Christians we are supposed to be fearless.
Cube Challenge: Today spend time praying to the Father. Pour our your heart to Him, thank Him, worship Him. In particular, ask for His protection in all you do today and He will go before you, He will protect you. He’s a good Father.
