Proverbs 2:8, “He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him.”
I’ve had this verse on the dash board of my car written on a little piece of paper for the last several years. It brings me comfort to be reminded that as I go about my daily tasks, driving to and from, the Lord is protecting me. When I read it, I usually focus on God’s physical protection, but recently God reminded me that He is also protecting us spiritually, mentally, emotionally and financially. He protects His children in every way.
I admit that there are times I don’t always understand God’s protection, simply because I don’t always understand how He is working in every area of my life. However, I know He loves me. And I also know that the way to remain within His protection is through obedience to His Word.
When life happens, we may have times we feel we are not being protected by God, but it’s during those difficult times where we have to choose to believe that our Heavenly Father is present, and that He is making a way for us. When we make godly choices, it opens the door for us to see God at work, and know Him in an intimate way.
Take comfort in knowing that the Lord is guarding your path and protecting you as you faithfully serve Him. I pray that you continue to rest in God’s sovereignty. Even during times when you don’t understand all the details of how He is working in your life, the lives of those you love, or in the world around you, trust that He has a perfect plan.
