Protected By God

RG AUDIO 011312Psalm 37:25-33

In our yard is a sign which alerts guests to the protection system for our house. The sign reads: “Protected by ADT.” If anyone comes in the house unannounced, the alarm system sounds off and quickly the security agents are to the scene . Such protection provides peace of mind and a sense of security for us.

As followers of Christ, we are “Protected by God.” Even though the enemy “lie in wait for the righteous” (v. 32), the Lord protects them. The enemy is sure to attack.

John Henry Jowett said, “A crisis does not make a person—it reveals a person.” It is up to us to allow a crisis to make us or break us. From every crisis we can learn the lesson to speak wisdom and justice.

Don’t waste a crisis. In the midst of it all, we can rest in knowing we are protected by God. “For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his holy ones,” (v. 28a).
