God’s Protection Is Sure
June 5 - Devotion
Enemies surrounded David and wanted to attack him, but he was not defenseless. He has God to defend him, therefore he cried to God and said,
“...But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me. Make your face shine upon your servant; save me for your mercies’ sake. Do not let me be ashamed, O Lord, for I have called upon you; Let the wicked be ashamed; Let them be silent in the grave” (Psalm 31:14-17).
We Christians reserve the right to ask God for blessings and protections. Since we are God’s children, we are allowed to ask him whatever we want. Meanwhile, our requests should not only base on provisions, we should also ask God for protections. Moreover, believers must exercise faith once they have prayed. God who dearly loves his children will not hesitate to bless and subdue our enemies under his feet.
Dear God, I realized that I am the most fortunate person on earth because I have you as God; therefore, I confirm my trust in you. I command all challenging situations that surround my life to bow in the name of Jesus Christ! Again, I emphasize that all uncomely situations that harass me to falter in the name of Jesus Christ. Since I am a child of God, I have a powerful authority to command situations to listen to me; therefore, I rebuke Satan and I command his entire afflicting instrument to become wasted in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
