“And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.” 1 Peter 1:5 (NLT)
When God tells you “no”, when He closes a door, when He removes someone from your life, when He tells you to slow down, when He doesn’t allow that job to hire you, when He tells you to take a different way instead of your normal route, when He wakes you up in the middle of the night to pray, it is all a part of God’s divine protective plan. He protects you by His power and love.
You are in the palm of God’s hand and no enemy can pluck you out! As long as you stay obedient to God, you will remain in His divine protection. It will be like a mighty shield around you…guarding you everywhere you go. However, if the enemy is wrecking havoc in your life, sometimes it’s not because you are just under spiritual attack. Attacks are often caused as a result of disobedience. Disobedience opens a huge door to the enemy to come in and cause a big mess of things.
You must always ask yourself, “Lord, is there anything You have told me to do that I haven’t done?” Once Holy Spirit brings it back to your remembrance, even if it’s something He told you many years ago, repent and then do it with no delay!
The enemy knows fully that he cannot touch you as long as you are obedient to God. You are outside of his domain and are shielded by God. Obey Him and His Word even when it doesn’t make logical sense. Obey Him even when it inconveniences you, makes you uncomfortable and causes you to have to give up something of value to you. Obey Him consistently and see His divine protection in ways you have never seen before. Be always before His face, receiving His wisdom and instructions and then doing what He says by His grace.
Prayer: Father, thank You for protecting me. Help me learn how to fully trust in Your protection and leading. Forgive me if I have not obeyed You. I repent. Even when I don’t understand why, even when it makes no sense at all to my head, help me learn to follow You. I declare I am obedient, submissive to Your Spirit, and I continue to see Your divine protection in my life and in lives of those I pray for. In Jesus name, Amen.
(Read Isaiah 1:19-20)

So wonderful to know we are really cared for! Thank You Abba Father for Your divine protection, how wonderful You are!
I too had to walk away from someone today. This devotional helped me so much to understand that I must be obedient and
choose to not live in sin to assure God’s protection over me. I had 2 unfortunate accidents this past month and I had a check in my spirit that just maybe if I end this relationship that is not ordered by God… even if its hard, even if I feel lonely, even if I cry…. in the long run God will send someone perfect for me and I will live in peace. Sometimes we have to hurt for a moment so that we can STOP to realize how BIG our God is and how ABLE He is to give us the BEST fit for us…..
Thank you Lord for meeting a my need. You spoke to me and answer many questions. I trust you Lord, when it does not feel good.
My Pastor JUST had this conversation with me last week! About “Obedience”..the Lord is calling me to work more with the Youth in my Church & I’ve been procrastinating..
I have absolutely NO EXCUSE..NONE!!!
Lord, PLEASE FORGIVE ME!!
The Children ARE our future Church! They are watching US! I have a responsibility to them..& I’m going to do what I’m called to do in Jesus’ Holy Name..I just want to cross every “t” & dot every “i” especially when it comes to children..I guess that’s why I’ve been hesitant about moving forward..but I know with the Lord on my side..we’ll be just fine😄
