Srimad Bhagavatham 10:48:26
कः पण्डितस् त्वद् अपरं शरणं समीयाद्
भक्त-प्रियाद् ऋत-गिरः सुहृदः कृत-ज्ञात्
सर्वान् ददाति सुहृदो भजतोऽभिकामान्
आत्मनम् अप्य् उपचयापचयौ न यस्य
What wisemen would choose as their protector anyone other than You, who are truthful of speech, grateful and loving of Your vortaries and who grant all desires of a pure-hearted devotee who worships by Chanting Your Divine Names, nay, bestow on him Your very Self, to which neither growth or decay can be attributed.
Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
How loving and merciful is Lord Krishna? You surrender to Him with the thought 'this Lord lifted Govardana, drank up the forest fire, killed Putana, therefore, He can protect me from the dangers of life'. But, what happens? Loving and merciful that Lord Krishna is, He says ,"I need not protect you. I will bestow you with this power!" and transforms the devotee as verily Himself. What does the Lord do? 'You need not come to me in trouble, I need not protect you, you become one with my 'prabhava' (glory)!' which means that you also become a 'Brahmajnani'. Lord Krishna transforms you into a Brahmajnani!
