Morning Devotional:

I came really close to being in a car accident yesterday and there was something that happened in the process that reminded me so much of why I love the Lord.

I was driving up to an intersection when someone pulled out in front of me and I had to slam on my brakes really hard. As I did, my seat belt locked, doing its job and keeping me from lurching forward and hitting the steering wheel. I was startled – it was a really close call – and I thanked God that no harm was done. But my seat belt was still locked in place, holding me in my seat very, very tightly.

Being how I was shaking from the close call, I struggled to get the seat belt off and when I finally got the belt to let me go, I found myself thanking God for what He had done for me. It was as if that seat belt served as His very arms, holding me in place and keeping me safe. Isn’t that what God does when He protects us from harm? Don’t you love the fact that when you trust in Him and enjoy His presence, His protection is over you in a mighty way?

I found it rather fitting that my devotional last night pointed me to 2 Thessalonians 3:3 where it says, “The Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.” My seat belt not only kept me safe from a sudden stop, but it served as a reminder that God always keeps us safe in His arms.
