” For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you.” – Acts 18:10
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 are around us 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 has Christians we are supposed to be fearless. God will watch over you and protect you – He’s your Father.
Cube challenge: Spend some time alone with God today, at least 20 minutes. Be sure to pray for protection and have faith that He will answer.
