You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

Like birds flying about, So will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will also deliver it; Passing over, He will preserve it.” – Isaiah 31:5
Few days ago as I had some work at night, I went to bed little bit late. As I entered our bedroom I saw my wife was sleeping and our little daughter was lying awake near her in the bed. As I went inside our little daughter saw me and so she came to my side and I was holding her in my arms. 

We both were sitting in the other corner of the bed. Suddenly our little daughter sneezed. Immediately my wife who was sleeping on the other side woke up all in a sudden thinking that our daughter went to the other corner of the bed unknowingly. As she thought that my daughter should not fall down, she woke up in a hurry and then moved so fast to hold our daughter in the direction where I was sitting along with our daughter. Then she realized that I was holding her in my hands and so with a great calmness she went to sleep again.

I was there for more than ten minutes and my wife was having a deep sleep. But yet even at that time she was so careful about the safety of our daughter. 

On that night Holy Spirit reminded me of the verse written in Isaiah 31:5 which talks about the way God protect His people. Usually birds fly above their nest to protect their little ones. Their eyes will be fixed on their little ones always. 

You might be surrounded by enemies and people who oppose you. You might feel like a prey. Unexpectedly many might have come against you to destroy you. You might feel like you are falling. Do not get discouraged. 

Jesus Christ is with you to protect you. He is on your side. No one can destroy you and your blessings. 

On that night my wife was sleeping but yet she cared about her child’s protection. But Bible says, “Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.”-Psalms 121:4. Then how much more God will care for you and protect you. Because He who keeps you shall neither sleep nor slumber. 

His eyes are upon you and He cares for you a lot. He will not let anyone to overpower you. He will not forsake you. No disease, no evil, no human plan, no problems can destroy you. You are God’s child. He will guard you and protect you. He will deliver you and defend you.

Have God as your refuge. You will live.
