Morning Prayer, Friday, August 16, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: GOD MY PROTECTOR
Father God, what I truly know is that I can’t see what lies ahead. Thank You so much for all the times you have stepped in and protected me from hurt, harm and danger. Amen
“The Lord is my protector; he is my strong fortress. My God is my protection, and with him I am safe. He protects me like a shield; he defends me and keeps me safe..” Psalm 18:2
“You are safe not because of the absence of danger, but because of the presence of God.” Yesterday morning, I am on my way to work. Hop up on 360 as I usually do and see an opening so I speed up to get in it because cars are coming and some people just don’t like to let you over. Just as I move over into the lane, look and the cars in front of me have come to a complete standstill. I was about to slam right into the back of the person that would have been in front of me. To avoid a collision, I swerved into the lane to my right which takes you to I-20 going West. No one was in that lane. I am thankful to God who can see ahead of where I am going. He already knew that was going to happen and cleared the way for me to avoid what could have been nasty. All I could say at that point after I breathed again was, “But God.” We don’t realize how many times in our lives there are the “But God” moments where God steps in and prevents what could have been a bad accident or situation. This is why it is important to be grateful and to stay close to God. All too often, and I have done this before, we go ahead where we were headed not giving any thought to “If it had not been for the Lord . . .,” that could have been bad. I am repenting for ALL the times BC (Before Christ) and after when I did not acknowledge that God covered me and protected me and kept me from bad times, hard times, and any time that could have been just heartbreaking. Whew! If you knew how close I came to almost hitting that car, you would know I am serious when I say, “I’m grateful, I’m thankful, and I am blessed!”
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
