”He spread out a cloud as a covering, and a fire to give light at night.” (Psalm 105:39 NIV)
A father instinctively shields his child from danger and we can depend on God our father that he will always protect us. When I wake in the middle of the night and fear washes over me, I can rest in His protective presence. I remind myself that God my Father is with me and lives in me through His Holy Spirit. As long as I remain in Him I am content.
God, my Father always knows where I am. He warns me and comes and rescues me if I have gone away. He also wants to defend me if I or circumstances have placed me in situations that I can’t handle. In Proverbs it’s written: ”Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.” (Proverbs 29:25).
Thank You Father for protecting Your children. Thank You that I, as Your child can hand over every burden to Your hands and feel secure that You will carry them.
