Life is full of surprises. Many people wake up in the morning hoping to have a blessed, fruitful, and glorious day, only to get through the day and be hit by an unexpected incident.
Remember the story of Job? He woke up one day and he lost his children and wealth. He did fear that will happen to him, but the incident took him by surprise.
This only happened because God took away his hedge of protection and gave the enemy access to Job. God is the one who keeps and sustains us. He is the one we can turn to whenever we feel unsafe.
