God’s Protection


God’s Protection by Kirk Hunt


Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him.

Genesis 37:18 NKJV


In another 5 verses, the sons of Jacob would betray their brother.  Murder would only be averted through greed.  Thankfully, the strength of God’s protection would exceed the strength of the threat. Joseph lived in, and through, God’s protection.


Joseph’s protection was not intended to avert all inconvenience or hardship.  Joseph would be separated from his father and brothers for 20 years.  He would serve as a slave, then convict, for 13 years.  Yet, in a day, he became the 2nd most powerful man in Egypt.


Perhaps you feel you are the focus of a hostile conspiracy yourself.  It may seem the only thing that anyone agrees on is that you are the target.  Their numbers and firepower do not matter.


God is your shield.  His protection will make sure you get to His purpose for you.  There may be inconvenience, or hardship, on the path.  At the end, you will fulfill your calling in safety and security.


God’s protection is deeper and stronger than their threat.  Your hardship or inconvenience will serve only to benefit you in fulfilling your purpose.  The conspiracies will not block your purpose, unless you let them.


Think:            God’s protection exceeds every threat.


Pray:              “Lord, help me to be at peace as I live in, and through, Your protection.”
