Jesus Words’ — Trust in God’s Protection!

Day 2343: Continuing the three day series on Trust and the temptation of Jesus. Provision, Protection, Procreation.

Scripture:  Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning You, and they will lift You up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”‘ Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'”  Matthew 4:5 – 8

Thoughts/questions: When we take a trip or do something a bit risky, we may shoot up a quick prayer for safety, but do we know deep down in our soul that God truly is protecting us each and every day? With our increased ability to gather information, we become more aware of the tragic happenings in peoples’ lives.

We aren’t protected from everything and we can’t be presumptuous about God watching over us, but we SHOULD regularly acknowledge who our Protector is! For Jesus, God would send His angels. For us, I think He does the same. How exciting it will be to meet ours and review how many times our angel protected us!

Consider your life and the many times a little change would have made so much difference. Yes, we can TRUST our Protector to not allow anything to come our way without it first going through Him! What a great promise! What a great Protector!

Suggested prayer: Lord God, I sometimes take Your protection for granted. Help me to always remember who my Protector really is . . .
