September 13 – Exodus 14:26-31

26 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the water may come back upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.” 27 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its normal course when the morning appeared. And as the Egyptians fled into it, the Lord threw[c] the Egyptians into the midst of the sea. 28 The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen; of all the host of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea, not one of them remained. 29 But the people of Israel walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.

30 Thus the Lord saved Israel that day from the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. 31 Israel saw the great power that the Lord used against the Egyptians, so the people feared the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in his servant Moses.

How wonderful to see God continue to protect His chosen people. Not only does God protect the Israelites, He destroys their enemies. Egyptians were rendered helpless, and God triumphed again. Take a look at your life. Are you being pursued by a frightful army? Probably not but if you are like me, it sometimes seems like an army when Satan is after you.  Satan has pursued people since Adam and Eve and he's not about to stop now.  When I was a child and became scared, I always ran to my dad, and he would pick me up and hold me in his arms.  I felt so protected there.  Of course, now I know the protection I thought I had in his arms, was all in my head, but it sure made this little girl feel safe.

Allow God to provide you protection and do not hesitate to cry out to God when the battle feels too tough, and all seems to be crashing in on you. He is a mighty God and He loves us. Turn to Him, cry out to Him and let Him show you the way.


Heavenly Father, I am so thankful for the wonderful protection You offer me every single day.  Thank You for the parents You gave me that offered me comfort when I was sick, comfort when I was scared and discipline when I need correction.  They stepped in to help me learn until You could take over and teach me.  I am so grateful You haven’t given up on me.  I know I am a hard case at times.  But You love me just the same.  Thank You for the armor You give me to use Jesus righteousness, the spoke words for the Bible, the faith that You give me, and they are all for my benefit so I can fight the enemy.  What wonderful gifts You give.  Help me use them well, and I pray they hit the spot in Satan, so He will see the futility in attacking Your children very soon.

Protect me, help me, and love me, Father.

In Jesus’ name.
