Trusted Protection

Child proof capI just had to smile when I read this. Brittany (age 4) had an ear ache and wanted a painkiller. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she’d have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked, “How does it know it’s me?”
God is like that bottle cap and mom. He tells us in His word the best and most fulfilling way to live each day, which also protects us from harm. He knows just the right dosage of encouragement and rebuke to hand out to keep us on track.
It’s not when life is going our way that we find out what we really believe, but when we hurt. As children of God will we trust Jesus and His Word or force the cap open and take what we want to feel good? Jesus is our child-proof cap, a trusted protection, if only we will act in faith on the truths, the right dose of medication, He gives when life wants to force us to life our way.
