God's Promises of Protection

When times get rough--and we know they will--it's good to know God promises. He's there with us even when we have a hard time sensing His presence. God won't abandon us! Take courage and press in even closer to God when those times get tough.

I leave you today with just a few of the many promises from God and a video clip of a song that's been stuck in my head recently. It's a very catchy tune and I like what it says. Enjoy!

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:7-9

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
    Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
    I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
~ Isaiah 41:10

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. ~ John 14:27

So be strong and courageous,
    all you who put your hope in the Lord! ~ Psalm 31:24

The Lord keeps you from all harm
    and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
    both now and forever. ~ Psalm 121:7-8  

But if you are careful to obey him, following all my instructions, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will oppose those who oppose you. ~ Exodus 23:22
