Example: A child may run behind their parent when frightened by an animal or a stranger. They do this because it is the safest place they know. They have learned their parent is there to protect them from harm. Many a child has said, ‘I will tell my mommy or daddy.’ They say this because they believe the parent will defend them!
If children can believe in their natural parents to this end, then our belief in the willingness and ability of our Heavenly Father to protect and defend His children should be just as sure. The Word of God assures us that in God we have protection, provision, and defense against all enemies.
As Believers we meet all qualifications with one exception. We must trust Him to do what the Bible says He will do. There is no failure in God, the only failure is our failure to depend upon and trust Him wholeheartedly!
Therefore, let us remain as trusting as little children and run to our Father first! Let us stand behind Him and His Word with boldness and assurance because He can handle it!
Confess This: I trust the Lord to be my defense and protection. Regardless of what I face, God is my help and protector!
