The Ultimate Protection...

Sometimes I think we live in a culture where there's an overemphasis of protecting yourself. This can take the form of many different things. And no, I wasn't thinking of Chuck Norris either :) Whether it's in our home, in a car, on a sports field, or anywhere else, protection is usually a big deal. Now I'm certainly not saying this is a bad thing, but is there some other sort of protection that sometimes we can miss? Maybe the obvious? Psalm 3:3 tells us, "But You, O LORD, are a shield around me; You are my glory, the One who holds my head high." Now that's some serious protection! The Lord is a shield around us. Now this doesn't mean we don't ever do anything to protect us, as that goes against wisdom. But we should know the Lord surrounds us. And not only is He a shield around us, but He He's our glory and the One who sustains us, holding our head high. Every day I ask for the Lord to surround my day, my family, my friends, our church, and many other things. He is our ultimate protector. He protects us like no-one can or nothing else can. And why does He choose to do this? Simply because He loves us so much. Thank you Lord for being my protector :)
