God our Protector

Scripture: Psalm 91.  

(What is God saying here?)

Psalm 91:9-12 (HCSB)

9 Because you have made the LORD—my refuge, the Most High—your dwelling place,

10 no harm will come to you; no plague will come near your tent.

11 For He will give His angels orders concerning you, to protect you in all your ways.

12 They will support you with their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my circumstances today?)

This Psalm reminds me that although some may place their faith in bank accounts and riches, some in government or military protection, some in parents or those in supervisory positions over them, but for those of us that place our faith and trust in Jesus, we can be assured that: all things work together for the good of those who love God—those whom he has called according to his plan. (Romans 8:28). Friends we can reflect on each day and see how awesome God has been in our lives. Many times all we need to do is look beyond the little hiccups/temptations and trials, and concentrate on the mighty works of God, to realize how wonderful it is that we are so important in His eyes that He would watch over us, provide for us and protect us. In fact, the Psalmist said that our God would give orders to His angels on how to best protect us, even to the extent that we would not bump our toes on a stone. Wow, this is the God of our universe, yet He loves even me to the degree that He would watch over me in such detail and love! Father, I adore You today, and thank You for being my Savior and Lord. How could I ever say “thank You” sufficiently?

(With God’s help, what am I going to do differently today because He said it?)

Lord Jesus, You gave up Your life so that I may live eternally with You in Heaven. You provide life itself in abundant ways each day. You display love to me in these ways and numerous other ways. Thank You for reminding me of the ways that You protect me as well. Wow, What A Mighty God I serve! Thank You Lord for loving me in so many ways! May this be a day that I may share my faith with others, that I show Christian love to others, that I reflect the Lord that saved me from a life destined for Hell. Thank You for providing for me every day.
