2 Samuel 22:4 I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
People today spend thousands of dollars on security. Burglar alarms for homes, and cars. Surveillance cameras are used to watch every movement around us. We have personal alarms and horns that people can carry in their purse or pocket to sound off if they are attacked. There is mace, stun guns and weapons to protect ourselves from attackers. Personal safety and security are a multi-billion-dollar business. I am not saying these things are not warranted. In fact, I believe in the day and age in which we live, it is to some degree necessary.
However, truthfully where does our protection come from? Is it from cameras, horns, alarms, mace, and weapons? Not really. The truth is our only real security is from the Lord. I know He gives us all wisdom to be able to protect ourselves. Yet in the end, when all is said and done, it is God’s desires and designs for life that are in play all around us. So then, what would be our greatest protection against the enemies of this world? Our verse has the answer. I will call upon the Lord, because He IS worthy to be praised: and by trusting in Him and His decisions for my life, I will then be saved from my enemies. Even if this ultimately means God needs to take me home to heaven to protect me.
Keep a constant line open to heaven. It is so much better than 911 ever will be. In addition, God’s response time can be a lot faster.
