God gave us a choice as to whether we subject our will to Him or not. We make the decision every day. Will we seek His will? Will we ask Him for wisdom? Will we do what He says? God’s will is the way we choose to live each day of our lives.
Our heavenly Father looks out for us and protects us from danger far more than we realize. But it’s not something we can take for granted. It’s something we must pray about often.
God is a place of safety you can run to, but it helps if you are running to Him on a daily basis so that you are in familiar territory. The Bible says, “In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to turn one away from the snares of death” (Proverbs 14:26-27).
Lord , I trust in Your Word, which assures me that You are my rock, my fortress, my deliverer, my shield, my stronghold, and my strength in whom I trust.
When you pass through the water, I will be with you; and through the river, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.
Lord, align my heart with Yours. Help me to hear Your voice saying “This is the way, walk in it”. If I am doing anything outside of Your will, show me. Speak to me from Your word so that I will have understanding. If there is something I should be doing, reveal it to me so that I can correct my course. I want to do only what You want me to do. Lord, I pray You would direct my steps. Only You know the way I should go. I don’t want to get off the path You want me to walk on and end up in the wrong place. I want to move into all You have for me and become all You made me to be by walking in Your perfect will for my life now. I also pray for Your hand of protection to be upon me. Keep me safe from any accidents, diseases, evil influences. Protect me wherever I go. Keep me safe in planes, cars, or any other means of transportation.
In Jesus name I pray
For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise
Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.
