‘It always protects …’
I guess you’ve figured out by now that today’s writer is the pretty Miss Demiladeayo. Before I continue, let me mention again how much I love her name. Oluwademiladeayo – it’s a mouthful but a very beautiful name. Anyway I digress – Engineer Adeayo is a sweet spirit and an amazing writer (you should know by now that our write-ins are by amazing writers 😉 ). She blogs at demiladeayo.com. Make sure you check it out – there’s something for everyone.
Here’s Deayo’s take on ‘Love always protects’!
The statement ‘love always protects’ immediately brings to mind the image of a mother and the love for her child.
The word of God says that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
It is always amazing to watch a mother come to the defence of her child to ensure that he or she is well protected from the cold, he or she is not hungry and he or she is emotionally stable- that is what a true mother would do. It is the same when we are truly in love with someone- we always want to protect that person; either the person’s image or the person’s love. Even when we are hurting there is always this sense of “May nothing bad ever happen to this person I love”, because we could not bear losing such a person.
How much more is God’s love for us? Even when we fall short and we think we would be left defenceless and alone. Even when we fall short and we think God is so angry as to allow the forces of darkness and evil deal with us; he promises- “I will never leave you nor forsake you“- because real love protects.
The word of God also says that perfect love drives out all fear.
The protective nature of love always helps us to feel at peace and guarded. We know that we are never alone. We know that our steps are ordered by the Lord.
Remember all those fairy-tale movies we watched were the wicked queen tries to harm the humble princess and the charming prince tries to save her? No matter the tragedy that unfolds at the end of the day, love always wins and they live happily ever after.
Love never fails because God never fails. God’s love will never fail you when you need it the most. And because nothing can separate you from the love of God you are more than a conqueror.
Love is usually depicted as a fairy tale anyway and with our God, there’s victory always!!! Never forget that – EVER!!! God’s love wins over all – even faith and hope 😉
