Saturday 15th December 2018 Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- Psalm 23
Topic:- God Is Your Protector
Text:- Psalm 23:4
During World War 2, a Soldier was separated from his unit on an Island. The fighting had been intense, and in the smoke and the crossfire, he had lost touch with his comrades.
Alone in the jungle, he could hear enemy soldiers coming in his direction. Scrambling for cover, he found his way up a high ridge to several small caves in the rock.
Quickly he crawled inside one of the caves. Although safe for the moment, he realized that once the enemy soldiers looking for him swept up the ridge, they would quickly search all the caves and he would be killed.
As he waited, he prayed, “Lord, please spare my life. Whatever will happen, I love you and trust you. Amen.” After praying, he lay quietly listening to the enemy begin to draw close.
He thought, “Well, I guess the Lord isn’t going to help me out of this one.” Then he saw a spider begin to build a web over the front of his cave.
“Hah” he thought, “What I need is a brick wall and what the Lord has sent me is a spider web. “God does have a sense of humor.”
As the enemy drew closer he watched from the darkness of his hide out and could see them searching one cave after another.
As they came to his, he got ready to make his last stand, but then he heard the leader of the soldiers say, “you may as well ignore looking in this cave, if he had entered here this web would be broken!” So they left, and he was delivered!
To his amazement, however, after glancing in the direction of his cave, they moved on. Suddenly he realized that with the spider web over the entrance, his cave looked as if no one had entered for quite a while.
“Lord, forgive me,” he prayed. “I had forgotten that in you a spider’s web is stronger than a brick wall. He will use the most foolish things in this world to confound the wise!”
God is your protector, if you believe in Him.
1. Oh Lord God, You are my God, and my protector, i will keep on serving You throughout the days of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Though i walk through the valley of shadow of death, I will keep on serving You, for You are my God, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Save me oh Lord God, whenever I found myself needing Your help and assistance, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Lovely Saturday!
