Message: The Shelter of God’s Protection
Scripture: Psalm 91:1-4, 9-11, 14-16
God is our ultimate protection!
God is: Most High Almighty Lord. He places His covering over us, His protective shield. When your life is falling apart, you want the One who is stronger than all others. And, that is: God our Lord, Savior, and Creator. God is the One who will: “… deliver him… protect him… answer him… be with him… rescue him… satisfy him with a long life and show him My salvation.“
Angels are incredibly detailed and gifted, yet God used them to protect someone like me – that is absolutely incredible! His angels’ job is to protect God’s believers. Do we realize the value of God’s love and protection for us? Do we seek His satisfaction – says a lot about where we turn? He will protect us in all our ways!
Focus on God’s protection, love, and His faithfulness – no matter what may face. Scripture says: “Because he is lovingly devoted to Me, I will deliver him. I will protect him because he knows My name (Ps. 91:14).” Are we seeking to be more intentional about being lovingly devoted to God, as a reflection of God’s love for us? How is our quiet time? How are we seeking Him in our daily lives?
God’s protection doesn’t mean eliminating our trials, struggles, or circumstances. It means He will enable us to endure, for His glory! (John 14.27)
