I’m often not aware of and tuned in to this, but this morning I am. Looking around the dining room, the Lord put on my heart a deeply grateful awareness that this household is under His blessing and protection. A covering over us, deflecting some of the more difficult hardships that we might otherwise have to face.
Is it something we’ve done that has earned us this protection? No. By His grace it‘s available to all who choose to rest in Him. It is possible for us to step out from under His protection. But He’s given us everything we need to avoid that, as long as that’s what we desire and choose for ourselves.
Lord, thank you for your lovingkindness to us. For providing so bountifully for us. And for a family whose hearts belong to you, joyfully desiring to look to you and honor you and follow you.
