Psalms 11:1 NLT I trust in the Lord for protection. So why do you say to me, “Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety!

Based on the news, some of us are scared to leave our homes at night, some are carrying two guns to go to the store, and some are paranoid to take the dog on a walk. This is NOT the will of God for our lives.

As the scripture says, trust in God for protection. That doesn’t mean be unwise and leave the front door open all night, but we should trust that He protects us every where we go. If we go to a gated community or to the projects, trust that God protects us and our property. This is real freedom.

Faith in His protection is not automatic. Faith in His protection comes by hearing the word of God about His protection. We can’t expect to have faith in God’s protection if we’re constantly listening to someone telling us “we’re not safe.” We must continuously hear God’s word about His love and His protection of us.

Since God loves us, He’ll protect us. Receive His protection.
