A Blessing from the Lord

I love Jon Courson's daily devotions. He currently has 3 books out, and each of them are great. This is today's from "Footsteps of the Flock":

November 14

"Therefore behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths." Hosea 2:6

"In Job 3, we see this same hedge of protection when God declared that He would plant a hedge around Job so that the enemy would not be able to harm him more than what the Lord allowed.

There is a hedge around every believer that protects us from the attacks and attempts of the enemy to destroy us. If Satan could, he would strike every one of us with disease or death. He would show no mercy whatsoever. But the Lord has a hedge around us and only what God allows for His purposes in strengthening our faith or developing our ministry can touch us. That is why the Bible tells us to give thanks in everything (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Nothing can come into our lives except that which the Lord allows."

This is such a blessing and a great reminder of the Lord's promises to us, He is so faithful!
