God’s Protection

When I was in college, I studied vocal music (singing). I had to learn many new songs. And often the words of the songs were in Latin, German, Spanish or French. Also, I had to sing the songs with the right expressions on my face and with the correct dynamics (loudness or softness).
At the end of the semester, I had to have a test before eight vocal instructors. I remember walking into the room and looking at my instructors. No one smiled. The only thing they said was to tell me to sing my songs.
That test was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I was so afraid that I would faint or forget my words. I prayed more than I had ever prayed before. I asked God to protect me and give me strength.
In our Bible verses God asked Jeremiah to speak for Him. Jeremiah said that he was young and didn’t know how to speak. God told Jeremiah, “Don’t be afraid of anyone. I am with you, and I will protect you” (verse 8a).
Ask God for His protection and strength today.
