Today I wanted to take a few minutes to encourage those who stop by and read this blog. Events of this world are confusing right now. I don’t know about you, but I scratch my head multiple times a day saying to myself, “What now?” While it is easy to get discouraged, the Lord is always with us and will always be with us, no matter what is going on outside our front doors.
In the Word, there are many scriptures about God’s protection. Here are a few that remind us that God is watching over us.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Ps 5:11
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Ps 32: 7
“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. Ps 91:14
Comforting words in time of strife. When I read these passages, they calm my spirit and I can continue on in my daily walk without feeling like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. (Because it isn’t!)
Along with protection is the fact the this earth is the Lords.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; Ps 24:1
How wonderful to know that the Lord is concerned about everything we go through! He knows our hearts, our fears, our joys. He stands beside us in our successes as well as our failures and loves us through it all. He bolsters our confidence and gives us strength daily. He is always with us.
And finally, my favorite scripture.
No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5
There is peace in knowing that God is in control, especially when we feel like we have no control of events around us. Call out His name and He will hear you.
Have a beautiful day!
