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.
