Trusting God Is Your Protection
Lawrence K. Anku writes:
Psalm 91:1-8 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Protection is a means of keeping or remaining safe in the Lord. When you trust in the Lord, you abide in Him and He in you. It’s is a state of being in His protective presence.
The one who trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ lives close to Him — meaning abiding in His presence. Nobody can get closer and dwell safely with Him without having a personal relationship and fellowship with Him. Your protection from God is dependent on your relationship with Him, even though He always protects us. Let’s think quickly about this: assuming you don’t have intimate relationship with your father, how can you then trust in him protecting you?
The presence of God is a ‘secret place’ or a ‘shadow’. In His, presence, you take refuge and the protection of the Holy Spirit is assured. The devil and his agents have no business with those who trust in the Lord and find themselves in the secret place (His presence) and dwell under His shadow (His covering or shield). Thus, His presence is not the jurisdiction or territory of Satan and his agents. So you’re as secure as God’s embodiment.
Brethren, let’s appreciate the risen King Jesus Christ for giving us refuge. Trust in Him because He is your strength and redeemer. He promises to protect you in all your ways; watch over your coming in and going out, guiding you away from harmful situations in this perilous times.
You must entrust your ways to Him and be fully convinced that He is able to protect you today and everyday of your life. When your heart is burdened and the world seems dark all around you, remember the Lord your God is your shield, deliverer and your rock. He is your foundation, cornerstone and stronghold. Any other foundation and stronghold is a counterfeit.
As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is shield to all who trust in Him – 2 Samuel 22:31.
No matter the unfavorable circumstances you may find yourself, be bold and have confidence of your faith in God and declare your absolute trust in Our LORD Jesus Christ.
