Who is between you and your danger?

A man brought his son to the park. While the son was playing with his battery operated toy boat by the lake, the man sat nearby on the grass reading his papers. From time to time, he glanced away from his papers to check on his son. 
The cool day was making him sleepy and so he closed his eyes to take a short nap. Before sleep could grip him, he saw from the corner of his drowsy eyes, a dog rushing towards his son. His fatherly instinct went into overdrive and in a twinkling of an eye, he was up and running. He threw his full body weight on the charging pitbull and knocked the creature over. 
Thankfully, the loose dog was in a shock and ran away. The brave father was not bitten. As the frantic owner of the dog ran to apologize, she found the man still lying on the spot between his little son and her pitbull.
This story reminds me of Jesus Christ. He threw Himself in the path of the charging devil and rescue us from hell and danger. Today, we have a relationship with God because of the sacrifice made at Calvary.
God loves it when we talk to Him. When we request for honorable things, He will give us favor. When we cry in the midst of danger, He will step between us and the danger. 
We can trust God because He has promised, "A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you." (Psalm 91:7).
