Protected

Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. – Psalm 91:14

Here is a beautiful description of our relationship with God. We cling to Him in love and know His name — we are close to him and He is the object of our attention.

Imagine being comfortable with God. He loves us so much He wants us to be close to Him all the time. He shares both words of love and words of instruction. All that He does for us is for our good and to show His affection for us. He is watching out for us, keeping us from harm and protecting us because He is right there with us. His protection is not coming from some lofty place as He observes from the distance. Rather, He is with us! He wants us to be happy and relaxed with Him, knowing Him dearly and holding Him in love.

Our Father is not off in the distance somewhere, but present beside us lovingly embracing us. We are protected.
