~ "Warning: This soul is protected by the Almighty...
Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. (Prov 2:9-11)
I am protected by love! Love from the Father who created me, the Son who redeemed me and the Spirit who enlightens me!
We become so caught up in the real world sometimes, we forget that the struggles we encounter have already been determined not to be more than we can handle. Each step we take as Christian has already been accounted for. Each mistake we make has already be rectified. We cannot fail spiritually if we are washed in the blood of Jesus!
Our faith sustains us many times over. Our stubbornness is what gets us into trouble. When we don't see God's hand as quickly as we want to, or we don't see our prayers being answered we may want to give up, but again, that still small voice within reaches into the deepest recess of our minds and pulls us still closer to him!
Everything in our lives is a testimony to his mercy and grace. Our abilities, our strengths and even our weaknesses tell the world that we are his! Be brave and be proud and fear not - we are under the watchful eye of the creator, and he never blinks!
