Our Connection Gives Protection

David was in distress because of his enemies. His requests for help as listed in Psalms 31 are to be rescued, to be guided, and delivered from his enemies. He found comfort in God’s love as he remembers what was done for him in the past. There is also protection for us in the storms of life because of God’s protection.

We can ask for help just like David did when under stress or facing difficulty. Our enemies may not be those trying to kill us as in David’s case but enemies like fear, anxiety, critics, bad health, etc. Mistrust and anxiety are foes to good health but faith can rescue us from them because of God’s love through Christ.

We can follow the command of verses 23-24 by growing in our faith through the experiences we have gone through in our past, from what we learn in the Bible, and by memorizing scripture. Most of all, love the Lord and pray for deliverance just like David does in today’s passage. Believe God will provide music for our ears, laughter for our souls, and a rainbow after every storm.

This day with You Lord, we turn to You for help. This gives shelter from the enemies we face in life and hope for a bright future. You will provide music for our ears, laughter for our souls, and a rainbow after every storm. Today, Jesus will carry our burdens and we will simply do Your will. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
