Daily Devotion: Unprotected

Bible Reading: Psalm 34

Key Verse: Verse 4 – “I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”

Key Words: delivered me

Have you ever been afraid and just felt unprotected?

There’s a magnificent hotel in the Bahamas. It's named after the lost city of Atlantis. It is a monstrosity of a hotel and is viewed as one of the greatest hotels in the world. There is a water park in the middle of the hotel. In the middle of the water park is a water slide disguised as a huge Egyptian pyramid. This pyramid water slide goes straight down at lightning speed. Lines are always long for this slide. Not only is it a thriller, but as you can go down you slide through an aquarium that holds some of the most dangerous fish in the world. As you do so, you feel very vulnerable. It appears as though you will become an unprotected prey to the fish below but the aquarium is contained by thick glass that acts as a barrier between the hotel guests and that which would eat them alive. That slide is a scary drop through a tank of scary fish, but there is a protective covering to keep the fish away from the visitors.

Sometimes life is a scary slide. Sometimes there seems to be trouble all around. But God protects those who fear Him and delivers them out of their trouble. Sometimes He keeps us from the trouble altogether; sometimes He lets us slide right on through. Either way, we come out on the other side protected, even though we felt unprotected!

What to do:

Remember the words of the psalmist, “And he delivered me from all my fears.”
