The Lord Watches Over Our Emergency Responders

This country’s police officers, dispatchers, fire fighters, EMTs and Paramedics see what no one else has seen. No matter what badge they wear, each has taken an oath to protect society. Immersed in the rigors of training, nothing can prepare them for what they may see and what they may be forced to do. They will walk into the face of danger without regard of their own personal safety while everyone else runs in the other direction. These brave men and women respond without hesitation to a crisis situation when others could only shy away. Their safety and life is second.

Most likely, if you have found this article you are either a first responder yourself or you love a first responder. I have been a law enforcement officer for 25 years. My husband is in law enforcement, my father is retired from the job. I know first hand the stresses that come with this job. I also know the rewards. There is no better feeling than to help your community. In 2021, many first responders are leaving the field. They are burned out. They no longer feel they have the community’s support. More times than not, they feel they are in a no win profession.

The Bible promises us hope. Those public servants who put on the uniform and continuing to do their thankless job are unsung heroes needing our prayers more than ever. God’s word can empower you when you feel powerless while the Word also promises to protect you as you provide solice. God’s word can provide answers when you are struggling to keep going.
