"Lord you will keep us safe and protect us from such [manipulative] people forever." Psalm 12:7
Having just come from a difficult work situation where I had been struggling with a manipulative person, this verse was a welcome sight. I had actually been feeling like I needed to somehow mend things, but in the past week, I have been receiving a message from God that I am not in control of the outcome of this situation. He is.
It is a great feeling to know that the God who created all things, the infinite being who loves us so much He sent His son to die on a cross, He is also there to protect us from those that do not obey His laws.
Even as I struggled this past week with the feeling that I failed, not just my bosses but God too, He keeps opening my eyes to messages in Scripture that are leading me to believe that maybe this was God's way of protecting me and keeping me safe.
It is so easy to forget that He is in control and we are not. I pray that I can focus my eyes on Him during this Thanksgiving week and remember that He is in control.
In His Grace...
