Many of us could probably give examples of hurtful words that we remember and keep with us. Even though these words may have been intended to trip us up or tear us down, we can be protected. We need to remember that even though hurtful words may have been spoken and may have been targeted at destroying us, we can escape them. By turning to God, we can be protected from the words others speak. God will act on our behalf. In God we can find a love that is greater than words spoken against us and a power that can overcome the words and anything else the world may throw at us!
People talk and words can hurt, but God acts and can protect!
Thank You for loving me and being willing to protect me and help me escape words that are meant to destroy me. Please continue to strengthen me and guide me, no matter what I might face in life. Through Jesus I pray, amen!
