Firewall of protection!

Verse for Today: Sunday, September 22, 2013

Psalms 32:10 – Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in Him.

Life in this world has its toll on human beings. The consequences of sin are everywhere and it is abounding. It has permeated into all walks of life and in all spheres of activity. Man is faced with all the associated woes of this sinful world. Human life is full of a series of sufferings because of it. But in such a world of chaos, sufferings, sickness and pain, God’s children have a special covering of grace, love, compassion and mercy to protect them. God’s wings of protection are spread above us. He has erected a wall of grace and compassion around us and hides us under His arms. We are His special possession purchased by the blood of His Only Begotten Son. As long as we live in this world, we might be facing woes of some kind, but our God will help us to handle it in His strength and power. We are asked to follow the example of David to keep trusting our God to keep us safe and secure in times of trouble. When the wicked people of this world try to find escape from woes through the means of the world, we trust in God and enjoy His protection and safety. The unsaved person has no hope when faced with woes, but God’s children put their hope in the Lord who will take them through the woes with His peace daily and hope of a place in the future where there will be no more woes. Such trust is ours through faith in Jesus Christ which helps us to keep going before, through and after woes. It is likely that woes come one after the other, but we have the privilege to keep trusting God through all the woes and the resultant pain and sufferings. No matter what our situations of woes are, we are safe in the arms of Jesus in His presence, enjoying His power, protection, provisions and peace.

Dear friend, are you lately faced with woes of some kind or the other? Don’t be surprised at it because as long as we live in this sinful world, there will be difficulties of some sort that will beat against human life. The children of God also face some woes, but the beauty of our life is that we have our Lord with us when we go through it. Even when we travel in the boat with Jesus, there will be storms and waves beating against our boat. But the presence of our Lord in our boat makes a whole world of difference. He is with us all the time as the unseen lifeguard round the clock in our lives. His mercy and compassion encircle around us and will make a firewall on all sides of our boat. He keeps us safe from the secret weapons of the enemy to discourage us. His presence with us enables us to keep going. He is our travel companion day and night and will not take a break from us any time. He speaks to us as we travel along and shares words of encouragement. He will motivate us to go forward with the hope of His interference in our affairs. He provides for all our physical, emotional and spiritual requirements on a daily basis so that we do not need to have any cares in life. He gives us His peace that passes all understanding in all our cumbersome circumstances that with His help and power, we can handle our situations till the end. When we have such great provisions in our lives, why should we worry or fret?

Psalms 91:4 – He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge.
