10 Bible Verses about God's Protection

10 Bible Verses about God's Protection

My foot slipped. I couldn't catch myself, not with the bundle of love I had in my hands. I took the fall. Rather than grabbing the railing or even putting a hand down to break the fall, I let my hip hit the stairs - hard. I held on to her.

Child. Must. Be. Safe.

Boom! Boom! Boom! The impact left my hip sore for weeks.

Child. Must. Be. Safe.

She didn't even so much as touch the floor. She was saved. After the thrill of her ride, she got up, laughing, she was scuff-free.

God loves to save us from our worst falls. He lifts us right above them.

Child. Must. Be. Safe.

When you fall down the stairs of life, there is one who will run to your rescue. His name is Deliverer. Fear not, he goes with you.
