June 25: God is Israel’s protector

God has always been and promises to always be Israel’s protector.  What He demands in return is faith and trust in His protection.  Sadly Israel often chooses to trust in nations or themselves instead of God.  The result is always destruction and death.

2 Chronicles 16:7-9a

And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him: “Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand. Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”
