Every year around Christmas I enjoy wrapping Christmas gifts for my family. I do the best I can to make each present nice and neat with a ribbon or bow on it. (They usually don’t turn out looking that great but my heart is in it and it serves the purpose.)
In the same way, if you are a Christain, God has wrapped you in Christ. Just as the wrapping paper on a gift protects the contents inside, so God protects you by covering you in His Son.
Psalms 91:4, “He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.” You are a gift from God and so He protects you by covering or wrapping you in Christ feathers and wings.
Yes, we live in a world full of evil and destruction but as God’s children we are gift wrapped with His protection. Nearly every day I say, “Thank you Lord for protecting and prospering my way through Jesus.” Then I usually continue by saying, “you protect and prosper me spiritually, physically, and financially.”
Be more conscious of God wrapping you with protection than the dangers around you. For example, we all have close calls while driving our vehicles. When you narrowly escape an accident, remember to thank God for His protection.
Believe that you are not like the people of the world who don’t know God. You are His child and He had gift wrapped you in the protection of His son. Make every conscious effort to acknowledge His protection and reject the fear that the world try’s to oppress you with. You too will be enjoying the fullness of God’s protection in Christ.
