protectionGod Knows How To Protect His Children

(Passage: 1 Samuel 23)

Protection comes from God! God distracted King Saul and prevented him from capturing David. The scripture stated,

“Saul went on one side of the mountain, and David and his men on the other side of the mountain. So David made haste to get away from Saul, for Saul and his men were encircling David and his men to take them. But a messenger came to Saul, saying, “Hurry and come, for the Philistines have invaded the land!” Therefore Saul returned from pursuing David, and went against the Philistines; so they called that place the Rock of Escape. Then David went up from there and dwelt in strongholds at En Gedi” (1 Samuel 23:26-29).

God’s Protection Remains For His Children

Believers must understand that God’s protection stand’s sure on us! He knows how to protect his children during crisis; he will shield us from the onslaught of the enemy. Jehovah will respond to the cries of his children whenever we call on him, and he will defend us for the sake of glorifying his name.

God’s protection still remains for his child who fails at any point or other. He will show mercy to help his children so that Satan will not take the glory. Jehovah will restore a backslided Christian and restore him to the joy of his salvation. It is important that God’s children (Christians) reserve their trust in God. We must take refuge in Him for he is an unbeatable God!

God’s Protection: “God of the universe that Christians serve is faithful to help us triumph during challenges. Christians are God’s children; we occupy a special place in his heart, and he will benefit us with his limitless provision and protection. It is important that we (believers) trust God when we are at the point of needs. Why? God is an Omnipotent one – His strength has no limit!” (BibleLifeLesson.com)
