You’re Protected From Evil (1)

“No harm will overtake you” Ps 91:10

Here’s a promise you can stand on in times of trouble: “If you say,“’The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Ps 91:9-11) 

There’s a spiritual realm around you that’s as real as the physical one you live in. One is the world of darkness, the other is the world of light. One is governed by Satan, the other is Governed by God. How else can you account for the brutal senseless killing of men, women, and children at the hands of evil people? Paul explains it like this: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Eph 6:12) 

shield of protectionDoes that mean you’re supposed to live in fear? No, and here’s why: (1) You are shielded by the blood of Jesus. Just as the angel of death on the night of the Passover couldn’t enter a home with blood on its doorposts, the blood of Jesus is a protective shield around you that the Devil cannot penetrate. (2) The odds are on your side. When Satan fell from heaven he took one third of the angels with him. That means we still have two angels for every one of his! “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” (Heb 1:14) Rejoice; as a redeemed child of God you are protected from evil.
