Have you ever experienced the miraculous protection of God? It's all around us.

I just watched the most mind-boggling news segment. An officer stopped a car and a few minutes later, he was under fire. Amazingly, the bullet was stopped by his badge. I sat there in awe as I thought about all the “what ifs” that could have happened. What if his badge had been higher, lower, or more to the right? What if the bullet had gone one or two inches either way?
But God protected him in a miraculous manner.
Someday when we get to heaven, I think it will be fascinating to see all the ways God protected us—many times when we didn’t even realize we were in danger.
There was the time my contractor husband was working on a job and he almost fell through the floor when some boards gave way on the second story. Paul was bruised and scratched, but God spared his life.
Looking back through my motherhood years with the beauty of hindsight, I see time after time where God protected my three active sons—from serious injuries while playing (yes, they were all boy!), car crashes when they started driving, and other occasions where there was no explanation for why they weren’t hurt.
I worried about them, but there was a sweet comfort in knowing that wherever they were, that God was with them, and that nothing could happen to them unless it came through Him first.
I’m so grateful for God’s protection, for his precious promises to us, and the peace that they bring, so I thought I’d share some for you to claim today:
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Psalm 34:7
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. Psalm 121:7-8
