As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).
This week’s scripture is:
As they set out, a terror from God spread over the people in all the towns of that area, so no one attacked Jacob’s family. 6 Eventually, Jacob and his household arrived at Luz (also called Bethel) in Canaan. 7 Jacob built an altar there and named the place El-bethel (which means “God of Bethel”), because God had appeared to him there when he was fleeing from his brother, Esau.Genesis 35:5-7 NLT
God protects His children.
My Heavenly Father protects me.
It’s not easy to set out heading somewhere new, especially when it feels like you’re surrounded by enemies. Fear can cause you to move in disobedience. But when you get instructions from God, you have to trust and believe that He will protect you on the way. God always accomplishes what He sets out to do. Remember that He protects His children who are walking according to His purpose.
A Prayer Starter…
Heavenly Father, You are good. You are present and You protect. Lord, I want to be obedient to your instructions. Thank You for walking with me as I carry out Your will. Continue to protect me from seen and unseen dangers along the way. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
