Protector

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.”
Isaiah 43:2 NRSV

“If my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will take me up.”
Psalm 27:10 NRSV

“The Lord says, ‘I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.’”
Psalm 91:14-16 NLT

God is our protector
Even when we feel abandoned and alone…
On our own.
But He is ever there,
Holding us, wiping our tears.
If we let Him, He is ready to defend us.
Ready to destroy that which seeks to destroy us.
But in our distress we don’t understand why it sometimes takes a while
Before breakthrough comes…
Or why there is pain and sorrow…in this fallen world…
Yet He never leaves us.
Never.
His tears of empathy are like a Warrior’s battle cry…
Our foes run at the sound of His voice!
Like a mother both enraged and saddened by her children’s wounding,
So our God rises up and justice comes swiftly…
A well-timed and wisely plotted attack, made by a Master General…
In the end, we look up from our troubles and see Him before us,
Sword in hand,
And we suddenly realize that our tormentors are no more…
Such is His love for you and me.
