The Royal Tree

Psa 91:1,2 Whoever goes to the LORD for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, can say to him, “You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.” (CEV)

The thorn tree stands tall in the African desert, its gnarled branches spreading like an umbrella. Its tiny leaves clump together to provide animals and people with a refuge from the fierce overhead sun. Long spiky white thorns protect its fruit and foliage. When we take Jesus as our King, we place ourselves under His protection. It is as if He spreads His branches over us, protecting us from the danger.We need not fear if we have taken Him to be our King.


PRAYER: O Lord Jesus. Thank You for being my King. Help me to stay beneath Your branches always.
