For the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap. – (Proverbs 3:26, NLT)
For the Eternal is always there to protect you. He will safeguard your each and every step. – (Proverbs 3:26, VOICE)
When we walk in the direction to which we are being called, Christ goes before us to prepare the way. This does not mean that our every step of obedience will be without opposition, in fact, quite the contrary is typically true; yet if God is for us, nothing that comes against us can stand. The Lord will protect us as we pursue the path that He is making plain, and He will keep us from being led astray from the way He intends for us to go, if we choose to rely on Him. May we trust in the Lord to be our security in the spaces that seem least secure, and allow Him to guide our every step, as He alone shall safeguard our steps as we follow Him.
Great Eternal One,
You keep us all safe,
As we trust in Thee.
Each step that we take,
You are by our side;
With arms open wide.
Arms that both protect,
And freely embrace;
All who come seeking,
Your wisdom and grace.
Thank You, Lord Jesus,
That in Your embrace,
We’re safe and we’re free.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are our security and protection. Thank You that You safeguard our every step and keep us from being caught in things that we are not meant to be near. Forgive us for our lack of trust in You to be our safety and protection when all around us seems unsettled. Teach us to trust You more, and to come to know and understand the depth and breadth of Your love and protection for each of us whom You call Your own. Show us how to love those around us, so that they too, may see the security that is found in You. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust in You to be our security for every step that we take, and our protection from every snare that seeks to entangle us. Amen.
