3 Bible Verses about Protection
By M. Grace, August 06, 2018 22:08 PM
As ordinary humans, we always see God as someone who can shield us from harm. That is true; but, we need to remind ourselves that we are living in this world that has become fallen. Moreover, we have free will and God sometimes has His own ways that we do not understand.
God's protection oftentimes comes as strength when we are in the middle of despair. Sometimes, His protection may mean an ending because He wants us to start a new beginning.
As a believer of Jesus, we are promised a new life covered under God's protection. Nothing can even separate us from His love. Rest knowing that God is always there for us and that He protects us in His own ways.
These 3 Bible verses will remind you that God is protecting you for His greater plans:
1 Corinthians 10:13 - "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."
We experience temptation in our lives. We do experience different temptations but God is faithful. He will not allow a temptation that we cannot stand. When we are tempted, He will give us a way to get out and conquer it. God Himself does not do the temptation. According to James, humans are tempted because either God allows it or He suffers from it. We need to remember that if a temptation has been allowed by God, it means there must be an important thing that we need to know, achieve or be reminded of.
2 Thessalonians 3:3 - "But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one."
Though humans cannot be trusted, God is forever faithful. Whenever we are in danger, we are always clinging to Him and He always saves us.
Deuteronomy 31:6 - "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
God is faithful and will always be faithful. He keeps His promises.
