As a parent, I can’t always be with my kids to protect them. And even if I was with them, I still couldn’t protect them.

God, of course can.

But he doesn’t always.

Bad things still happen.

So what gives?

Or, more accurately, what is he giving? Assuming he’s a loving father–which I do–what is his response to the bad?

The answer is provision.

God tells us he will never leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).

It’s hard to understand what that means in difficult times.

And it certainly doesn’t mean easy.

But it does mean he’s provided a solution, regardless of the problems today. It means that no matter what ‘protection’ looks like from our point of view, God is still providing a way forward and a future.
