God's Protection

When we are discouraged, we must remember the Lord’s protection.

Psalms 91:4
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

This doesn’t mean God always delivers us out of our trials or problems, but He will protect, or preserve, us in our problems so we can learn from them.

Usually we pray, “Lord, help me out of this mess,”when we should be praying, “Lord, what are you trying to teach me through this mess?”

Remember the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace? Did God keep them out of the fiery furnace? No! But listen to how Daniel 3:27b describe their condition after going through the furnace.

Daniel 3:27b
27And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

These three young men were aware of God’s protection. They trusted God enough to know if He didn’t help Them out, He would protect them through their trials and problems.

In the Bible God never promises us a problem-free life. If we never came to a point in life where we felt overwhelmed, we would never sense our need for God and be drawn to Him. In the midst of our discouragement, we need to remember the truths that are found in God’s word.

James 4:8
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you…….

When we are discouraged, we must remember the Lord’s protection.
