A Cloak of Love - February 26, 2024

Can you look back over your life and see instances of God’s protection?  My junior year of college I was fascinated by a movement of Christians. Some of my friends decided to spend the summer at the movement’s largest church and be disciple. When I tried to do the same, every door closed. A second opportunity surfaced: spending a summer in Brazil. In this case, every door swung open. Decades later I saw how God protected me. The movement became a dangerous and oppressive cult. Time in Brazil introduced me to grace—freeing and joyful.

Did God keep you from a bad relationship? Protect you from the wrong job? 2 Thessalonians 3:3 (NIV) says, “He will strengthen and protect you.” And Psalm 91:11 (NIV) reminds us, “God will command his angels…to guard you.” God protects you with a cloak of love.
