Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (NIV).
“Oh my, I have overslept!”
“I hit snooze too many times.”
“I am going to be late.”
As I maneuvered to the kitchen to make a smoothie, I retrieved the ingredients from the refrigerator and put them in the NutriBullet. I then turn on the NutriBullet to only find out that I did not put the lid on tightly.
“Oh my, I am already late and now this happens.”
I then whisper a small prayer, “God, help me right now!”
Next, I dashed out the door headed for work to discover there had been a major car incident. I instantly remembered the prayer I had prayed and the fact God answered it.
How many of us have overslept or been late for work to only find out it was for our protection? God’s is always protecting us. Yet, we fail to realize or acknowledge His presence and protection.
I did not over sleep by coincidence on that morning. That was God’s plan to protect me from being in a car accident. God shelters us even when we do not understand what is going on. When we did not get the job, it was for our good because the plant closed down two years later. When we did not get the house in the particular neighborhood, it was for our good because the house was infested with termites.
The word “refuge” means shelter from danger. The scripture tells us that He is our refuge and our strength when we are in trouble. Daily, He has His hands on us, around us, and covering us. Thank you for Your continuous protection.
Thank You for continuously watching over me and covering me. I thank You for strengthen the hedge of protection around my family, friends, church, neighbors, and the community. Lord, I plead the blood because there is power in Your blood. What an awesome God!
In Jesus name,
