Psalm 127:1-2 Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning to late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.
God protects us!! God protects our homes, our cities, our country!! God makes sure that we have food to eat and clothes on our backs! Only God can do this. We can think that we have it all under control ...that it is all us...but it isn't. When we give all that we have to God, God protects all that we have!! We can work from before day light until after dark and we can store up tons of wealth, but if we don't love God that wealth will not be protected. It can be taken from us in an instance no matter how hard we have worked. We can build the mightiest army... the smartest planes... the biggest ships but all of that can not protect us if we don't love God. If we choose not to be children of God. If we choose to ignore God in all that we do we move right out from under His protection. When we choose to love God our army will never be too small or our bank accounts too empty, God will provide. But we have to choose to love God with sincerity... we have to show God that we love Him by our actions. When we do... God protects us on every side!
