God is your Protection

During our life in this world, we need protection to survive and live happily. When we are kids, we need our parent’s protection and as days pass by, we protect our family and children. Protection also means to protect something. We protect our pets, assets and properties from intruders. Who will be peaceful and happy to live in a world which is full of insecurity and danger? No one likes it. But still we have no other go and have to live in the same world which is occupied by different types of danger. All we can do is, try to be safe and free from all danger and injuries. How can we protect ourselves and our family?

You can protect your family financially through a secured job and solid income. You can protect your name and heritage through righteousness and good qualities. You can protect your assets through law and orders. You can protect yourself and your family from danger with your physical strength and power. Safety and security can be provided or obtained. As parents, you always wish to do a lot more things to secure your children’s future. So every day, you wake up, do your routine work and sleep. Do you know that no one can give surety and safety for your life the next day, except God? Proverbs 10:27 says, “The fear of the Lord adds length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short.” God alone can bless you with long life, so that you can put in your hard-work and efforts in supporting and protecting your family.

Even though we speak about confidence, strength and power, sometimes we go weak and fear about the dangers which surround us.  We read in Psalms 91, about the different types of dangers and disasters we are all afraid of and how God protects us all. The verses will always give you hope, that God is always watching your feet and protecting you. When you are in fear ask God to fill you with courage and He will lead you. When you are oppressed, God will be your stronghold and refuge. Nahum 1:7 says, God cares for those who trust in him”. Trust in Him when you feel unprotected and lonely, He cares for you.

At all times, God will be your hiding place and He will protect you from all trouble. He will command His angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. I sometimes see that, parents instruct their kids to pray and then go to school or play. It is one of the responsibilities of every parent to train their children and build a habit of praying for their safety. As we grow, we forget that habit of asking God to protect us. If you have forgotten this beautiful habit, it is not too late. Every day, pray to God for His protection, before you leave your home to school or work. Pray when you before you travel, before you sleep, before you eat etc. God will guide you and will protect you from all life-threatening and unsafe situations.

Bible Verse about Fear of Darkness

Psalms 63:6-8

“On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.”


During daytime, though many people pretend to be brave and mighty outside, inside, many of us are really very scared about the night and its darkness. Night and its darkness not only scares children but also grown-up people like us. Though we do not need much safety during the day, we desperately seek protection and security during the night.

Do not forget that, both the days and nights were created by God and He will watch over you. Remember His protection, when you go to sleep and relax. Remember His comfort, when you wake up and start a new day.

Cling to Him tightly and He will be your timely help. He will protect you with the shadow of His wings. He will watch over you throughout day and night. Be glad and rejoice that when you are in His protection nothing can harm you.

Bible Verse about Protection

Bible Verse of the Day March 27, 2013

2Thessalonians 3:2-3

“Pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith. But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.”


We as parents, protect our children from all dangers and harm. Everyday, we always expect them to be safe and secure when they are at home and also when they go away from home. We ensure that our home is protected by using security devices. We ensure our body is healthy by consulting medical services and so on. We take so many measures to keep ourselves and our family protected. Despite of all our protection, sometimes things go beyond our control. Unexpected things happen which brings in unbearable hardships and sorrows.

Whom should we depend on to provide everlasting protection?

It is only God our protector, who we can trust always, without any limits. He will never let any harm overtake you. He will never allow any disaster come near you. He will satisfy you with long life and will rescue you. Remember your past days, without your knowledge, God has always protected you from many many traps and accidents. Praise God! You can never count the number of times God was at your side and how He protected you and kept you safe and alive today.

I can say that to the world, without any hesitation. Full praise and glory be to God forever. Thank God everyday for His protection on you and your family. He will always hide you with His mighty arms and command His angels to safeguard you. Our God is faithful!
