God Protects Us

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 43:2

What an amazing thought! God is with us all the time.  There is never a time when he is not there, as long as we invite him into our lives.  God protects us.

Can you think of a time where you should have been swept away by life or a situation?  

I can think of lots of times in my life where I shouldn’t have been able to succeed.  Somehow I still came out on top.  

One great example was when we started our own business.  I’ll bet you didn’t know that we made that leap of faith to go out on our own we had ONE customer.  That’s right, one client.  

Who leaves a great job with great people, and great wages for ONE client?  

Apparently only a crazy person. Or someone with a LOT of faith.

We should have drowned multiple times the first year we were in business.  One of the many fires that came should have burned us more than they did.  I’m not saying that we didn’t have to fight to survive, but so far we are more than surviving.  We are thriving.  

Without God’s help, I know that this wouldn’t have been possible.  

God provides his protection when we invite him into our life.  It’s not why we invite him in, it’s just of the many perks of having him in our hearts.  

Take a second to think about when God saved you from the rushing waters or the raging fire.  Maybe it was when your kids were teenagers. Or when you took on a new project at work.  It might even be throughout your marriage.

When has God protected you?

Prayer

Lord God, we come to you today to thank you for protecting us from the fire and the rivers of the world.  The fire that is the stresses of the world.  The river is the situation we put ourselves in.  We know that you don’t have to be there for us.  You don’t HAVE to protect us, yet you choose to.  Thank you for looking out for us.  Thank you for guiding our steps, thoughts, and actions.  Lord as we move through this life we ask that you place you’re had over us, over our family, over our friends, and overall believers and non-believers throughout the world.  Give us all the wisdom to know that you are with us.  Give us the sight to see you in every aspect of our lives, and give us the ability to feel your presence.  Especially when we are near the fire!  Thank you for everything that you do for us.

Amen

Will you pray with us?
