God wont take you where His grace will not protect you
Guarded by Angels

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?
