God Of Love And Protection
Scripture of the Day:
“The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” – Nahum 1:7
Whatever it is that you are facing today, know that God is with you. If we seek the Lord with all our hearts, our God is our refuge. He is our protector. He cares for those who trust in Him. God’s Word says that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. No matter what it may look like on the outside, God is working on the inside behind the scenes on our behalf. Stay faithful. We can always count on God. His ways are far greater than our ways. Lean on Him. Trust in Him. For God is good all the time. Believe. God will see you through.

Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your Word today. We know that you are good. You are so good. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do on our behalf. We know that we fail and fall short. Keep us from temptation. Deliver us from evil. Protect us from those who wish to harm us. We thank you for Jesus who takes our sins away. For you are our refuge in times of trouble. Your Word says that you care for those who trust in you. We put our hope in you. We put our trust in you. We fully surrender to you Lord. Let your Will be done. Let our lives be a light unto your path. Let your Holy Spirit overflow in us. We declare your blessings over our lives. We are healed, we are whole, we are brand new, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
