The movie "The Incredibles" was recently on television. In the movie, the daughter of two super heroes discovers that she has the power to create a force field "bubble" around herself and those close to her. When in need of protection, she calls on her powers. While we do not have a visible bubble, we do have a shield that can protect us!
When we are facing trouble, we can call on God. He can be our shield. He can protect us and He can guide us away from danger. We can keep our heads up, keeping our eyes on God because of His power and work in our lives. When we feel like fading away, giving up, or hanging our heads low, we need to remember that God is our shield, our protective bubble, our Redeemer, and our strength in all things!
Don't let your head hang low, call on God and He can be the shield or bubble that surrounds and protects you!
Thank You for protecting me, guiding me, and giving me strength. Help me to always call on and trust in You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
