God wont take you where His grace will not protect you

Updated on May 25, 2012

Don't you love those comforting notes from friends that seem to arrive just when you need them the most?

This quote "God will not take you where His grace will not protect you" is an excerpt I snipped from an encouraging note a friend at work emailed me. She's that special kind of friend that always seems to know when I'm down and in need of encouragement. These words felt so comforting to me when I received them. I wanted to see them every day, so that I'd remember when things seem unbearable and I'm feeling stressed, that God is here with me, and He's not going to let things get so bad that I'm not going to be able to endure it.

The clipped promise hangs in my office where others can see it too and know that we are not alone. We are protected by the Shadow Master, the Maker of the World, Creator of the Universe, the Alpha and Omega - The Great I Am!

Psalms 91:11-14 is one of my favorite Bible passages. In these verses we find assurance of God's provision for those of us who love Him: 11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. 12 They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you will trample down. 14 Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.

We are very important to Our Heavenly Father. He has command over all the angels on heaven and on earth, and He assigns them to watch over and care for us. That's their purpose, their job, to keep us safe, to guard us.

I think if we could actually see what's in the spiritual realm, what's around us, we'd be quite shocked. Perhaps this is another way that we are protected, because we can't see everything, so we go obliviously about our business without noticing what's unseen.

God is awesome! Do you agree?

      Cathleena, I agree that if we were to see beyond the normal, we would be surprised at the angels around us. Psalms 91 is a favorite chapter of mine, and I admit that He has kept me through many difficult times in my life. Thanks for the encouraging words.

      Thank you stars439. You are so right that our troubles are best left in God's hands. No one is equipped to handle them better than He can.

      Dear Cathleena : You are so right. Our Lord protects us from matters that are too much for us to bear. They say that whatever troubles us too much should be left in God's hands. I can see where that might be necessary sometimes. GBY.

      There is so much suffering, illness and tragedies in this world. It is a blessing that we do not have crystal balls and know what lies ahead but just take it a day at a time. So nice to think that guardian angels are looking out for us and that better days lie ahead of us in eternity. I can understand why that saying is a comfort. Voted up.

      And when we listen to the quiet, still voice deep within, we can feel that we are the little I AM -- immortal child of the Father, hungry to awaken.
