Text Box: God’s Provision and Protection 

Devotion 
When we seek God and are thankful for all He has given us, we will not lack anything we need. And when we give to those less fortunate than ourselves, He will bless us (Ps.41:1- 2). But if we close our eyes to the needs of those around us, God will do the same with our needs. When we put all that we have, especially our finances in His hands and do with it what He is telling us to do He promises to bless us. Remember if you give nothing you get nothing, and if you give little you get little, “you reap what you sow”. 
Now for protection, we should never take for granted the protection of the Lord in our lives. We should not enter a plane, train, or automobile without praising God as our Protector. We should not enter a day without asking Him for His protection and then thanking Him for it in advance. How many times have we been protected and spared from harm and disaster that we are not even aware of? God’s word tells us that we are in His hands and no man can pluck us out. 

Prayer 
Lord, I worship You as my Almighty God. You are my King and Lord over all my life. I surrender everything I have to You because I recognize that every good thing I have has been given by You as a sign of Your goodness, mercy, and love (James 1:17). Thank You that You are my Provider and You provide everything I need. Lord I praise You as my Protector. Thank You for hiding me under the shadow of Your wings”. You have delivered my soul from death. Have You not kept my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living. Thank You, Lord for providing and protecting me, my family, and all that I have in Jesus name, Amen.
