God has given us commands, not because He is a controlling God, but because He is a loving God. Those who remember His commands and follow them remain shielded, for God is wise in what He tells us.
Father, may my life reflect Your will. When I study Your ways, may I absorb Your wisdom and become better for it. I know that You will protect me from harm, and I will do my best to follow Your commands each day. I thank You for Your will oh God, and pray that I may understand it better as each day passes, Amen.
