Safety Insurance

I've been reading Proverbs in my devotions recently and was impressed by how many verses indicate that God truly provides for our safety and promises His presence, His help and His security to us. I just wanted to share a few of these verses with you and hopefully they will bring encouragement:

"He holds victory in store for the upright; he is a SHIELD to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones." (Proverbs 2:7-8)

"Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared." (Proverbs 3:25-26)

"The fear of the Lord leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble." (Proverbs 19:23)

"My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment....then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble."
(Proverbs. 3:21a and 23a)

"My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words; do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body." (Proverbs 4:20-22)

"He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge." (Proverbs 14:26)

God's Word and our obedience to it promises protection, freedom from trouble, health to our bodies, and security and safety as we go through life. If you aren't in the habit of reading God's Word every day, you are missing out on truth that could be profitable to you and your whole family.

Go in safety today as you trust God to place that hedge of protection around you and your children!
