Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Our loving heavenly Father watches over His flock and will not lose even one without knowing about it. There’s nowhere that we can go where we’ll be outside His sight and His protection. He can and does protect us. We have nothing to fear.
The things of this world can be dangerous to anyone, but to a follower of Christ, some of them are downright disastrous outside the grace of God. He keeps us from harm and allows nothing to prosper against us as we carry out His purposes. If we’re on the path He sets us on, we’ll see plenty of opposition, but He’ll be the One who keeps us going, guarding us all the way.
He know our weaknesses and won’t allow us to face more temptation than we can bear. In fact, when faced with temptation, God provides us a way out! He gives us the avenue to get away from it, because He cares about our future. He has things for us to do and He’ll provide a way for us to make it to the finish line. He’s there for us, even when it sometimes seems He’s not. He’s never off duty, He’s always watching over us, like a shepherd who cares about each and every one of his little sheep.
