God’s Power Always Protects You - Daily Hope with Rick Warren - December 14, 2019

God’s Power Always Protects You
By Rick Warren

“And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation” (1 Peter 1:5 NLT). 

God is watching over you every moment of the day, just like a bodyguard would. Everything in life is Father-filtered — even the hard things caused by your sin or others’ sin — God can still use for his good. 

That means God’s power protects you: “And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation” (1 Peter 1:5 NLT).

When you find yourself in a situation where you feel hopeless, helpless, or powerless — that’s all a lie. You’re not hopeless, helpless, or powerless when you have God in your life. 

Have you ever seen signs in front a house that says, “Protected by a security system”? Maybe we need a little sign to remind us, “Protected by God.”

The word “protect” in 1 Peter 1:5 means garrison. It is a military term that refers to sending soldiers to a town in order to protect it. They garrison the town, staying there to guard it. In the same way, you are continuously guarded by God. 

All you have to do is, in faith, trust God is there with his protection.
