“The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.”

Psalms 121:7

My husband and I were talking one day as we were travelling out of town about  how God protects us and most of the time we are completely unaware. He told me a story that had happened to him a few days earlier, that confirmed what we were discussing.

He told me how he got stuck behind a person who was going well below the speed limit on his way to work. Once this car pulled off, another driver taking their time pulled out in front of him. His frustration was growing as he was going to be late for work. As traffic flowed closer to the highway he saw a school bus coming in the opposite direction and in an instant, a deer crossed the road and was hit by the bus.

Everyone was fine,  with only minor damage to the school bus (the deer was not so lucky) My husband drove along and thought to himself “what if I had hit the deer in my little Honda Civic? Would the result have been the same, with only the deer suffering injury?”

If he had been a little farther ahead in traffic, it could have very well been him that hit the deer, but on that morning, two people decided they were in no rush and therefore put my husband behind schedule – and I am thankful for it!

God is always watching out for you, and His protection follows you as you go about your day to day business. Thank Him for that today!

God, I am so thankful today that you are always watching out for me. I know you walk beside me, and You are as the close as the mention of Your name. Thank you for every time you protected me and I had no idea. You are incredible!

  1. That is so true. How wonderful to know that God is watching over every aspect of our life, and so many times He keeps us from dangers we are not even aware of.
