Day 9 – God’s Protection
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Psalm 18:2 NIV
Do you know that God is your protector? When you go through hard times and feel scared, He is your rock in whom you can take refuge. He will protect you and deliver you from all harm. How have you experienced God’s protection over you? Has He protected you in a dangerous or scary situation? Has He placed obstacles in your path to keep you from making decisions that wouldn’t have been beneficial for you? Have you experience the Lord as your rock, your fortress, and your deliverer? Today I want you to sit and focus on the ways God has protected you and given you refuge.
Thank God for the quiet moments to spend in His Presence.
Ask God to remove distractions so you may focus your heart and mind on Him.

In His Calm,
