Our Protector

Scripture: Then they set out, and the terror of God fell upon the towns all around them so that no one pursued them.  Genesis 35:5 NIV

Observation: Jacob and his family, servants, livestock, and possessions were in a country that was hostile to them. His oldest sons had just defended the honor of their sister and the people of the area could seek retaliation for what they had done. However, the Lord promised them protection.

Application: Wow!  When we are God’s people, his possession, we are protected by the creator of the universe. He made a mountain and he promises to protect me, “He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’” Hebrews 35:5b What do we have to fear?  He is with us in all that we do.

Prayer: Father, thank you for protecting us. I ask that you watch over all of my wife and kids today in whatever they are involved.  Bless their day and give them success as they work, study, and play. Amen
