God Is Our Protector

 

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.    Anne Frank

Negativity seems to run rampant in today’s world  Economies are failing; people are fighting; crime is on the increase and doubts and fears assault us daily.  We see on television and read in the papers how evil man is becoming.

But we as Christians have a strong protector on our side.  He is a Father who loves His children.  He sends us proof of that love with each sunrise and sunset.  He want us to trust Him and know that He will take care of us.  He tells us to look at the lilies of the field and the birds of the air.  If He can take care of those can He not take care of us?  (Luke 12:22-24).

So when the enemy fills our hearts with fears and worry we just need to remember that we have a loving Father that cares for us.  We need to remember His promises and turn all the doubts, fears, and worry over to Him because “He that is in us is greater than he who is in the world”  (I John 4:4).

Father, I come to you and turn my fears and worries over.  I cannot change the situation by worrying but I know that You are holding me in Your hand and will care for me.  When I hear the birds singing and see the flowers growing I know that You are caring for them and I know that You will care for me.
