Have Confidence In The Protective Power Of God
August 16 - Devotion
God distracted King Saul and prevented him from capturing David. The scripture stated,
“Saul went on one side of the mountain, and David and his men on the other side of the mountain. So David made haste to get away from Saul, for Saul and his men were encircling David and his men to take them. But a messenger came to Saul, saying,
“Hurry and come, for the Philistines have invaded the land!” Therefore Saul returned from pursuing David, and went against the Philistines; so they called that place the Rock of Escape. Then David went up from there and dwelt in strong holds at En Gedi” (1 Samuel 23:26-29).
God knows how to protect his children during crisis, and he knows how to confuse their enemies. Jehovah will respond to the cries of his children whenever they call on him, and he will defend their interests. Even when a child of God fails, God will still show mercy. He will restore his backsliding children so that Satan would not rejoice over them. Therefore, all children of God ought to take refuge in God, and solely depend on his unbeatable power!
Dear God, I believe that you are the strongest being in existence and you have the power over all things. Therefore, I invite you to come to my aid and rescue me from all problems. Please confuse my enemies and let them stumble in their evil practices. Give me the upper hand over my adversaries, and let me experience your divine victory. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
