I Am Protector and Teacher

Isaiah 48:17. This is what the Lord, your protector, says, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you how to succeed, who leads you in the way you should go.”

God says ,”I Am your Protector.” Since He is our protector what is there to fear or worry about? Absolutely nothing. He also says He teaches us to succeed and leads us in the way we should go. If we walk in the way we should go we will succeed. Our question is how do we know the way? Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. All are found in and through Him. He showed us how to live. Through His Holy Spirit God chosen men recorded His teachings and all is available to us in written form in the Holy Bible. Our problem is we want to pick and choose which laws of God we will follow. We like to say some of His statutes don’t apply in our time and place. We like to take verses out of context and make them say something they don’t just to prove a point we want to make. This is why I encourage those who read these devotions to open your Bibles and read the entire passage. These devotions are intended to be a short jump-start for your own devotional time and an encouragement to explore new or different thoughts. God wants His best for us. He gave us His best, Jesus.
