God’s Protection

God’s Protection

By Jessica Dixon

Psalm 121:7-8   The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. 8 The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.

I can remember being a little girl and rushing outside to play with my group of friends after school.  I always had to be in before it was dark and my homework had to be done first before going out to play.

Man, I would get so angry at my parents because I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t let me stay out later or allow me to do my homework once I came back inside.

It seemed I had such little time to play outside during the week and even on the weekend I felt like there still wasn’t enough time to play.  Little did I know that my parents were really only doing that for my protection.

You see God does the same thing with each of us at times.  For example, we could be working at a job we really enjoy and then boom…the manager calls us into the office the following day and tells us he has to let us go.  At these times we usually start questioning God, “why”?

Later on into the week something happens to make us realize that God did this for our protection and then we are thanking Him.

Another example could be, you have certain friends in your life and all of a sudden those same friends are gone before you blink. God again may have been protecting you, though you may not have realized or seen what He was protecting you from. 

Just as when we were little kids and we didn’t know or understand what our parents were protecting us from, God is always watching out and protecting us and at the time don’t know why.

We shouldn’t question Him because ultimately everything He does is for our protection and benefit.

What a Mighty savior we serve!

I am so blessed to be able to call Him my best friend – my provider –  my protector and most importantly my Savior

lives in South Carolina, USA with her husband Brian.

She is not only a gifted writer but has had a great impact and helping hand in many areas of World Prayr.

From the beginning she has served with love, dedication, diligence and a pure servants heart. She is living proof that the Lord brings His own, each one with an integral unique gift, together as one to be a strong team of servants in Him.

Live for today, Pray for tomorrow


World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
