Oftentimes, when parents throw a birthday party for their child, they have a cake at the party. The name of that child is usually on the cake.
When it’s time to cut the cake, a parent will often say, “Don’t cut my baby’s name!”
You may cut the edges. You may cut the middle pieces. You may even cut “Happy Birthday.” But you better not cut that baby’s name! If you cut the name on the cake, we act like it’s a voodoo curse.
As earthly parents protect the name on the cake, so your heavenly Parent is protecting you. You survived what you’ve been through because God has been protecting you.
