The Lord wants to remind you today that HE IS YOUR PROTECTOR.Where you feel vulnerable, anxious, under attack or betrayed - He is standing between you and all that is coming against you.He is deflecting the arrows, taking the blows, absorbing the shots, blocking the enemy’s advance.He is your shield, your defender, your refuge, your armor.He is covering you on every side and hiding you under in His vastness.
HE IS YOUR PROTECTOR. So take courage, the Father has seen your struggle and understands your heart. He knows you are battle weary and need to rest. His angels are on assignment on your behalf. Their swords are drawn, they’re positioned all around you like a troop of bodyguards. Don’t be afraid.

Walk today as if your dad is the King, because He is. Nothing coming against you will deter you or harm you. THE LORD IS YOUR PROTECTOR.
2 Kings 6:15-18
“When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don't be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant's eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.”
