10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you.
I love the line in the verse above that says: ‘He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna,’ – It’s so true isnt it? When we are in trouble and when we turn to the Lord, in our fervor, He humbles us and shows a way out of our troubles. Such a comforting thought.
How many friends do you have that will stick with you through thick, thick, oblong, square, etc? He does. How many people will understand you at your worst and when you’re cynical and grumpy? He does. How many people will tell you that things will be alright and be absolutely sure that they will be? He can.
He protects us all the time. Everytime we’re in distress.
He protects me from knowing that my heart can’t handle love again. He protects me from depression and its effects. He protects me from hurting because someone won’t love me enough. He protects me from settling for less than i deserve. He protects my family from the violence surrounding them. He protects my family from famine, poverty and pain.
He protected my mother when she had a few serious surgeries. He protects my dad everyday with his addiction, He will slowly show him the right way. I believe it. He protects my sister from the evils of the world but making her smarter to know the difference, giving her free-will to make mistakes.
He protects you too. Thank Him, don’t let your heart miss a chance to be grateful.
